Glitter and lace dominated the Versace show that has opened Paris Fashion Week.

Models paraded down the catwalk in feminine gowns decorated in sequins, golden studs and sparkling embellishments.

The collection included floor-length gowns, metallic mini dresses and box-like corset numbers in a palette of beige, gold, yellow and lime green.

Column dresses made for structured silhouettes and spaghetti straps finished off the look with elegance.

A pair of striking red strapless dresses stood out from the rest of the collection, finished with an array of sequins and gold-plated trimmings that dazzled in the light.

Head designer of the Italian luxury fashion brand Donatella Versace incorporated elaborate gold details on dresses, with some designs emulating a strong military feel while contrasting with soft, feminine off-the-shoulder dresses.
