Donatella Versace flew to Dubai for the official opening of Palazzo Versace last week. Supermodels mingled with local designers, CEO’s and members of the media on the terrace of the luxurious hotel located in Culture Village.

Brazilian model and actress Alessandra Ambrosio wore a blue mini dress covered in blue Swarovski crystals with red sash detailing. The Fall 2016 Atelier Versace piece was accessorized with silver Versace heels and a matching clutch.

Natasha Poly from Russia wore a look straight from Versace’s latest runway show, comprising a multicoloured gown with draped, printed panels and beaded detailing throughout. A sleek evening bag and pared-down black heels by the maison finished the look.

Danish photographer and former model Helena Christensen completed the line-up of front cover faces, wearing a baby blue Versace mini dress with tumbling blush satin sash.
