Get oooout! Donatella Versace keeps the Versace message alive: It's all about tight or shiny, and hopefully a little of both. Kudos on braving the ankle-snapping heels, the thought of which make we mere mortals tremble.

Anna Piaggi! Italian fashion writer! Style icon! She of magical spreads for Italian Vogue! Always eccentric, never afraid. And she's used a bright red manual Olivetti typewriter for her work since 1969. What is not to love?!?!

While this is not my favorite dress on Dita Von Teese, I appreciate her wearing a bright color, when almost everyone else chose black. She is a show-stopper, even if the ruching and the sleeves seem a bit much.

On the left we have Giovanna Battaglia. L'Uomo Vogue editor and former Dolce and Gabbana model. On the right: Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld, son of French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld. In other words, friends, you're looking at fashion royalty. Her ensemble is ridiculous — yet somehow amazing; his vibe reeks of "I'd rather be on a boat in Sardegna." Bow down.

Dean and Dan Caten — founders of Dsquared — can pull off pink tux jackets with roughed-up jeans like no one else. They need to call Chuck Bass when they're looking for a third to call the corners with.
