There are three things you can always expect at a Versace show: superstars, supermodels, and super-sexy dresses. Donatella Versace’s Spring 2016 Atelier Versace Couture show delivered on all fronts, featuring sporty suiting, revealing gowns, and enough famous models to make a fashion fan’s head spin. Here, the 10 highs from the runway.
