Donatella Versace electrified the audience at her Versace Fall 2012 collection in Milan with a collection that was a gothic, hard-core sexy and gave homage in part to her late brother Gianni Versace’s last collection in 1997.

This show perfectly captures the mood of the moment, “the Gothic Goddess” a tough, strong woman inspired by actress Rooney Mara, the star of the film ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’. Hair stylist Guido Palau gave the models short cropped bangs in the spirit of Joan of Arc.  That severe, stunning look was offset by artist Pat McGrath‘s dark smoky eye makeup and bleached brows.  It was powerful, sexy and defiant.

Donatella hit the mark with this collection; it screamed confidence, from the armorlike corsets;  the chain mail pieces and the encrusted crosses, it was stunning. Designer Christopher Kane and fashion editor and model Anja Rubik spoke to us after the show in this exclusive fashion video.

Kaia’s Mom Cindy Crawford was a muse of Gianni Versace, and appeared in many campaigns for the house in the 90’s, so it has to be an exciting moment for everyone involved that Kaia is taking up the Versace mantle now. “Like her mother, Kaia has a very special gift,” Donatella Versace said in a press release. “The camera really, really loves her. Having Cindy on-set for the shoot took me back to all the amazing Avedon shoots we worked on together. It was such a special treat watching Kaia walk in her mother’s footsteps!

Cindy returned the love, saying, “I’m so thrilled that Kaia was chosen to be part of the first Young Versace Campaign. I have so many fond memories of the times I spent with Gianni and Donatella. There is something so very special about the House of Versace. Being on-set with my daughter watching her in front of the camera was a fantastic experience. I am so proud of her.”

The Versace Fall 2011 collection was one of the season’s standout collections at Milan Fashion Week.

Designer Donatella Versace went back to the roots of the house, using the baroque tulip which was one of her brother Gianni Versace’s favorite flowers. It was a strong show from every point from the medusa buttons to peep toe boots to the military styling that is sure to be a huge trend for fall. The show had a sense of nostalgia about it as the show was held at Via Gesu – the location where her brother Gianni Versace did all his fashion shows.

Featuring interviews with Hilary Alexander, Mario Testino, Oribe, Susie Bubble, and top models Arizona Muse, Lindsey Wixson and Natasha Poly.
