In a departure from Milan, Paris, or New York, this year Versace opted to show their Fall/Winter 2023 collection in sunny Los Angeles. Some of the world’s most famous faces were in attendance, with Dua Lipa and Miley Cyrus making appearances, as well as supermodels like Kendall Jenner, Vittoria Ceretti, and Gigi Hadid walking the runway.

To join the flock of Versace devotees, Copenhagen-based creative Emili Sindlev made the trip to California. Known for her joyous, colorful approach to fashion (and her perfect curly hair), Sindlev fit perfectly into the purple scene.
