Corsetry is a Versace signature, and for autumn/winter 2022, Donatella Versace made it central to the collection. Now, muse Hailey Bieber has become one of the first to road-test Donatella’s new-season corsetry, fresh from the catwalk.
The model and mogul orchestrated an Instagram photoshoot wearing Look 12 from the collection: a satin corset mini dress with intricate boning skimming the chest, torso and side seams, embellished with bejeweled Medusa motifs on the straps.
Hailey’s chosen shade? Pink, of course, perfectly in line with the rise of Barbiecore. Stylist Karla Welch posted a picture of the model in her bubblegum look with the caption: “Paging the Barbie movie.”
Nicola Peltz Beckham is another famous fan of Versace corsets. The actor, who incorporated a number of Versace looks into her wardrobe for her wedding celebrations, told Vogue at the time: “There’s just nothing that feels better than a Versace corset… The fit is impeccable. It makes you feel sexy, but classy at the same time. Versace is just the perfect thing to put on after a big bridal gown.”
While Nicola kept her bridal accessories to a minimum, Hailey dialed up the glamour in layered Tiffany & Co. diamond and chain necklaces, and a pair retro white boots from Naked Wolfe. Extra? That’s exactly what she was going for. As she put it on Instagram: “Having a little extra fun today.”
