The first Versace boutique was opened in 1978 and its popularity was immediate. Today, Versace is one of the world's leading international fashion houses. Gianni Versace redefined fashion by combining it with rock 'n' roll, art and celebrity. By merging the worlds of fashion and entertainment, his shows became pop-culture events. This iconic fuchsia-pink silk gown, from his 1998 collection, is a wonderful example of his genius. The seductive dress has stunning crystal and silver-metal studded embellishment around the shoulder straps and shelf-bust bodice. I love the ultra-flattering hourglass bodycon shape. The best part of all is the dramatic plunging backside which is a signature Versace touch. "That is the key of this collection, being yourself. Don't be into trends. Don't make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way to live." Gianni Versace
