Naomi Campbell Kicks Off Fall 2013 Haute Couture in Versace

The Fall 2013 Haute Couture shows kicked off with a bang thanks to Versace show opener Naomi Campbell who took to the runway in an S&M-like black ultra short ensemble.

This season's offering was classic high octane Versace sex appeal with high slits, body grazing silhouettes, bra tops, slashes, tears, peep holes and exposed midriffs, all of which are sure to find their way onto the likes of Kim Kardashian and Rihanna. The palette was kept dark in a shrewd move to not overpower given the amount of embroidery and chunky jewelry many of the looks came finished with.

Among the collection's standouts was a strapless knee-length, black cocktail dress with a curved sheer panel in the middle and a sheer floor-length embroidered gown with a corset bodice.
