What I Should Have Worn to The Wedding

I was looking through Versace Spring 2010 Ready-to-Wear Collection and suddenly something struck me.

One of her dresses would have been the perfect costume at Chris and Fann’s wedding. Remember I mentioned in one of the captions of my previous entry that I felt like Alice in Wonderland that night? This is exactly it.

Vivid pastels, geometric prints, baroque curlicues combined to create short dresses for the woman-still-a-girl. For Spring, Donatella Versace had been inspired by Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland (which comes out next March).

No wonder.

Take a look, and don’t forget the shoes! Who cares if they’re so this-season? They are my favourite accessory and I like to imagine myself still wearing them next Spring while having scones and tea in the English garden.












These are the red-carpet worthy dresses. The best part is, they actually look good with that wind-blown, tousled hair. There’s something effortless, carefree yet whimsical about the “red-carpet girl” in these frocks.

  4. Hi Joanne,

    Ironically, I spotted the very same model with ‘Alice in Wonderland’ dress (picture 1) in our last weekend newspaper in Sydney.

    It seems this 22-year-old Australian model’s name is Abbey Lee Kershaw who has taken a break from last season’s catwalk to recover from her knee surgery.

    Apparently, she told the reporter that the opening for Versace was a ‘really big step’ for her because she said that she had mostly been perceived as the sweet-looking, quirky girl. So, by opening a very womanly, mature show, she got the chance to show the industry her other side.

    I hope you don’t mind me filling you in with this news.

    • Thanks Shirley for sharing, I love it when people contribute new information, that way this becomes a marketplace where we learn from one another! 🙂
