Whats Poppington: Stefani Germanotta

Lady Gaga is revisiting her Inner Donatella Versace, because she has been sooooooo hot lately, and its weird of me saying this, but she looks friggin hot. Versace bound is always best on Stefani Germanotta…I have to call her by her amazing Italian name cause there’s nothing ‘Gaga’ about her right now.

Whats Poppington: Versace fall 2011 Campaign ads

The house’s Fall 2011 campaign is also perpetuating a new Versace era; instead of Mario Testino, who has done Versace campaign honors since 2004, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott were the photographers of choice, a Versace first. And rather than featuring a celebrity or a blonde — as is typical for Versace — the campaign focuses on the brunette Saskia de Brauw. “For me, it is expected to have the blonde girl, the sexy girl, and this is what Versace meant recently,” explained Donatella. “But I thought about how in the past, when Gianni used girls like Kristen McMenamy and Stella Tennant, everyone was always saying, ‘Wow, this is not a Versace girl, she is not blonde.’ Sometimes you need to renew yourself to work better and to make a little bit of a push.” Of the resulting images, Versace added: “It’s a glamorous woman and it’s a little pop, which I love. Mert and Marcus are very talented and full of ideas. This season is just the beginning. I want to push something different and new.”

Whats Poppington: The Versace Code for the F/W 2011 Man

This seasons ‘Versace man’ collection for men is obviously fooling around with shapes, proportions, colors and graphics..pretty much hes getting more comfortable and open minded to fashion, and being introduced to the contemporary look. This look is not suppose to shine and stand out, its calm serene, and focused more on the luxury of the collection. I cant get enough of the fine tailoring and different fabrics being used. The focus this season to me was focused more on the shoulders, coats, and detailing of the mans body. The combination of long, short, and extended waistlines totally work for this collection, its a vintage look, and at the same time very contemporary, and I totally recognize the Versace code the ‘3-D effect. threads, astrakhan necks of the coats also posses a three-dimensional aspect. The colors include electric blue, camel, red, purple and flashes of hot pink. Suits explore a full range of grey , and the key fabrics are cashmere and wool.

Whats Poppington: Lady GaGa’s Love affair with Versace for the next two months
