Anne Hathaway wore a custom Atelier Versace gown combining signatures of both Karl Lagerfeld's Chanel and Versace, referencing Karl and Donatella's shared design

elegance, sensuality, and sense of fun. The figure-hugging and slashed gown references Versace silhouettes of the 1990s Supermodel era,

while a construction of gold thread French tweed, featuring degradé embroidered ton-sur-ton paillette, and Swarovski crystal, recalls Lagerfeld's time at the House of Chanel.

Chanel Camellia flowers decorate the bust.

Embellishments include custom-made Medusa Safety Pins with pearls, and Medusa emblems. The pearl white color palette is in reference to bridal gowns of both Chanel and Versace.

The design took the Atelier over 450 hours of handcraft and 15 meters of fabric to complete.

The gown was completed with matching tweed motorcycle jacket, long gloves and white satin Aevitas Pointy Platform.

Simu Liu

Simu Liu embraced the iconic image of Karl Lagerfeld himself, with a custom Atelier Versace tuxedo.

The Grain de Poudre wool single-breasted blazer features a peak lapel, silver Medusa buttons, a Versace tailoring label at the sleeve, and silk satin plissé inserts.

It is worn with matching smoking pants with silk side band, and over a shirt with Karl's distinctive high-neck collar. T

he look is styled with crocodile embossed leather gloves and leather and patent boots.

Donatella Versace

Donatella Versace’s look took inspiration from Karl Lagerfeld's Chanel Spring-Summer 2018 collection by playing with transparencies and creating a visual reference

to the waterfalls which featured as a backdrop at the collection's fashion show.

The silk duchesse and tulle design features chandelier, Swarovski crystals, stones, and paillette, cascading in degradé as a waterfall of embellishment.

The degradé pattern is in a square tweed motif in further reference to the material synonymous with the House of Chanel.

A folded structural bust, visible bustier boning, and pouf hip volume all elaborate upon the Versace Fall-Winter 2023 collection.

Handmade organza flowers are adorned at the neckline. The look is completed with pink Tempest platform pumps.
