The immaculate gold safety-pin dress worn to full effect by Elizabeth Hurley in 1994, a hard to look away collection that made your heart skip a beat this was Gianni Versace, the genius tailor of sex.
Before Hurley, the show that will forever be stamped in our minds is the Spring 1994 Ready to Wear, VERSACE.
Kate Moss in a navy pin-striped suit, one part banker, another part Catholic school girl. Christy Turlington in full-blown Lolita mode, wearing a pink gingham pinafore paired with short white socks and pumps speared through with a kilt pin. The extended offering also included tie-dyed laces and lace-trimmed biker shorts that made abbreviated shifts “decent.”
The source of Gianni’s inspiration was clear. Punk. The use of pins, slashings, the cut-outs all careful engineered. This was sex and rebellion.
