When a starlet steps out in a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti heels we can always expect for that moment to major, and last night Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Stewart made sure she was going to have a major moment on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen while talking about her divorce. Porsha appeared on the show in a sick pair of Ankle Strap Haircalf Giuseppe Zanotti heels.
Porsha paired her shoes with a one sleeve crew neck knee length Versace dress with gold detailing on the neck line. Standing 5 3/4″ inches tall with a 2 inch platform the heels have a crisscross animal print haircalf vamp and a red suede upper ankle strap with gold hardware to match the slender gold heel. You can find her heels on SHOPBOP for $895.00.
Actress Vivica A. Fox also made an appearance on the show with RHOA star pairing a knee length embellished Erdem dress with a pair of Christian Louboutin heels, doesn’t she look stunning.
Divas are we loving Porsha’s look on WWHL. How do we feel about her shoes, is this a pair you would rock or are you passing on these. What do you think about Vivica A. Fox ensemble? Sound off below.
We’ve tweeted, talked, stalked and held our breath up until the day that the Versace For H&M collection was available for purchase…it has came, went and we’re still as excited as if the announcement was just made yesterday. Check out the chaotic excitement that was the Versace For H&M Pre Shopping Event…
First off, let me be honest – Am I a die hard Versace fan? No. In fact, I was an anti-Versace fashionista for a long time. Since the Versace for H&M collection was announced, I have had my doubts, snickers and serious side eyes on what to expect from the collection. Since reviewing the collection via online photos, etc – I still had a few reservations on what to expect from the designs in real life. But on Friday, November 18th – H&M launched a special Press Preview & Pre-Shopping event for their highly anticipated Versace For H&M Collection.
Upon arrival I stumbled across two lines – one line filled with people camping out for Saturday’s public release of the collection, and another line filled with socialites, bloggers, industry stylists, editors and more. In the blink of an eye, once those doors opened – all since of fashion civility went out the window and the ferocity of finding fashion gold became top priority. Spotted throughout the aisles were Robert Verdi, Bevy Smith, Diane Valentine and more!
Since I didn’t have any set piece in mind, I stood by the entrance and watched the H&M staff replinish the racks with loads and loads of Versace designs. Once I saw something I liked, I got the attention of the associate and asked for my size. For the most part, I got away unscathed (barely).
I didn’t want to buy pieces (in my opinion) that could easily be identified as apart of the Versace for H&M collection – because once the fad is done, then what? I wanted pieces that I could easily mix and match within my current wardrobe. Some of these looks I could easily pair with a blazer or jeans and take the look from day to night with ease. (Wearing the pieces all at once? Not gonna happen *smile*) Take a look at some of the pieces that I scored during the event and let me know what you think!
Versace For H&M Top – $49.95
Versace For H&M Leggings – $29.95
I just had to get the opinion of my Twitter family before I hit the registers…
Versace For H&M Dress – $79
Now onto my favorite finds….THE ACCESSORIES! I can definitely testify to the fact that I scored big on the accessories (because by the time I even arrived inside of H&M many of the fierce finds were already gone.)

Did this weekend’s deep freeze trick you into believing it was December? With frigid temperatures affecting the southeast and snow showers pummeling the east coast – many of us learned the hard way that summer is seriously long-gone and winter weather is here to stay. On a happier note, winter weather brings unforgettable holiday experiences as well as unforgettable holiday fashions with Versace and H&M.
As reported earlier this summer, Versace is set to release it’s affordable holiday collection via worldwide retailer H&M. Known for it’s vibrant (and sometimes edgy) fashions – Versace’s (led by Donatella Versace) womenswear collection will be dominated by dresses featuring studded leather, silk and colorful print, with accessories including high heels and costume jewelery. The men’s collection will focus on sharp tailoring, including ‘the perfect tuxedo’, as well as belts and jewelery, while for the first time in a designer collaboration at H&M, the collection will include some homeware pieces, including cushions and a bedspread.
“The collection for H&M is the essence of Versace. For the collaboration we’ve brought back from the archives, as well as from more recent collections, some of the icons of Versace…I can’t wait to see how H&M’s wide audience will make these pieces of their own.” – Donatella Versace.
Set for release in select stores nationwide on November 19th – H&M is hosting a pre-release celebration sweepstakes that could land you and a friend a trip to NYC (flight/hotel accommodations) and an exclusive sneak peek at the NYC Press Preview, November 18th. Want to enter? Click below:

Are you planning on shopping the H&M Versace Collection?
There’s just something about a see-through heel that no matter how you dress it up, it still screams striptease….
Maybe that’s the look that Dontella Versace wanted to go for when she accompanied her Versace Spring 12′ designs during her runway show in Milan…
The designs are fierce and fabulous and are sure to grace the red carpet of some of Hollywood’s hot young starlets next year…but those shoes…
…Not so much…
There’s not enough laser cutting or bedazzling in this shoe to make a lucite heel appealing…

Do You Own A Pair Of Lucite Stilettos?
The ever fabulous Kelly Rowland strutted down the red carpet in a backless black shift dress from Versace’s Fall/Winter 2011-2012 collection for the X Factor Press Preview at 02 Arena in London, England recently giving us a new spin on the ever popular LITTLE BLACK DRESS.
This backless dress offers a pop of color that offsets its slender-hugging design and can transform from the office to the nightclub with ease utilizing a few key accessories.
Originally spotted on the runway, this Versace’s Fall/Winter 2011-2012 collection piece is one that goes beyond the boundary of the traditional trends and could easily become a chic versatile addition to your closet.
No, we’re not talking about the throwback Biggie Smalls Versace shades and shirt…But Versace is bringing its fashionable styles at an affordable price to your local H&M stores. Starting in November, you can expect to see a variety of bold colors & primal prints invade the racks and shelves (that is before the shopping natives ravage them…)
In a statement, Donatella Versace said, “I am thrilled to be collaborating with H&M and to have the opportunity of reaching their wide audience. The collection will be quintessential Versace, perfect for H&M and Versace fans everywhere.”
According to the Huffington Post, “The womenswear collection will be dominated by dresses featuring studded leather, silk and colorful print, with accessories including high heels and costume jewelery. The men’s collection will focus on sharp tailoring, including ‘the perfect tuxedo’, as well as belts and jewelery, while for the first time in a designer collaboration at H&M, the collection will include some homeware pieces, including cushions and a bedspread.”
I’m ready to add a little Versace to my Fall wardrobe…are you?
It was bound to happen….the two biggest rivals in hip hop history have been caught up in the biggest fashion faux pas imaginable….(no, not Biggie and TuPac….) LIL KIM & NICKI MINAJ….spotted wearing the same Versace lace up sandals…*insert dramatic climatic music here*
Lil Kim and her arch enemy Nicki Minaj have something in common, they both like the same shoes. They have both worn Versace Resort 2011 Lace Up Platform Sandals ($1,495). Lil Kim wore it to a party at Club Liv and Nicki wore it in her video for Super Bass. The sandals available online in black here.
I guess these shoes were too wild to pass up – originally spotted I guess these shoes were too wild to pass up – originally spotted at verydevine.com & kidunot.com.
What do you think? Would you rock these Versace stiletto sandals?
If you guessed Ciara, Kandi and Nicki Minaj then you’d be correct!
Ciara attended the Knicks game this past weekend topped off with these $1,722 Versace Metal Heeled Booties. Kandi styled the same boots in brown and navy with an eggplant dress and chocolate brown leather jacket for an appearance on 106 & Park a while back. Nicki Minaj was also spied on the same 106 & Park stage with the boots last October in black pants and a pink tank.
A diagonal embossed zip with a maroon leather trim, maroon suede inserts, a buckle fastening, stitch and quilted detailing, a round toe, a metal stilt between heel and ankle which creates a gap with an exposed metallic blue sole, a stitched rubber grip at platform base and a designer-stamped metal sole. Did I mention the shoes boast a 6 1/2 inch metal heel and a 2 1/2 inch rubber gripped platform. These heels take platform heights to a whole new level…
Look up Hollywood glam in the dictionary and you’ll probably find Halle Berry. In a figure-hugging Marchesa gown with sparkly overlay, delicate bodice and dramatic tulle train—plus gorgeous makeup and hair—the A-list actress shows everyone how it’s done right. Textbook red carpet fabulousness doesn’t get any better than this. She’s voted our Oscar’s BEST DRESSED.

Jennifer Hudson shed 80 pounds recently and wore a tangerine-orange Versace gown and purple heels. She’s currently promoting her sophomore album, I Remember Me which will be in stores on March 22nd – but shouldve come better than this. Losing the weight was a great accomplishment but that doesn’t give you the green light to wear just anything with a designer label. I loved her look at the Grammy’s and think she could’ve come up with a more flattering gown choice for her new body. She’s voted our Oscar’s WORST DRESSED.

Yeah, we know Natalie Portman is totally pregnant, and walking the red carpet with a baby on board can’t be the most comfortable thing ever, but we’d be lying if we didn’t say we expected more from the Best Actress winner. Maybe we wouldn’t have been as underwhelmed by this burgundy Rodarte number if she had mixed things up with her accessories. But instead, she went all matchy-matchy, which just made us go all YUCK. She’s voted our Oscar’s WORST DRESSED.

Oprah Winfrey squeezed her media mogul self into a Zac Posen gown and presented the Best Documentary Award to the filmmakers of Inside Job. Although the bottom of the gown was beyond stunning…the top looked as if she was smuggling something (and not in a good way). I love me some Oprah “Lawd knows I do”….but I can’t co-sign the “too-tight-up-top” foolishness that was going on here. She may have not had it 100% right but she’s still voted our Oscar’s BEST DRESSED.
