LONDON — Saturday night belonged to no one but Donatella Versace as Versus duly took over London as it widely said it would on every and all viable social media. The takeover was accomplished with a strong lineup that included eight models from across the Next network including, Odette Pavlova, Lily McMenamy, Selena Forrest, Impy, Olivia Jansing, Lineisy Montero, Marjan Jonkman and Grace Hartzel. Pulsating music, mesmerizing lights arrayed in repeated V sequences left no doubt that come what may in the fickle world of fashion, Donatella is about as true and real as they come. Military tailoring, seductive details that took maximal advantage of the body’s largest organ, skin, this collection had it all and was proud to light it up on a Saturday night.
