Leave it to Donatella Versace and Kim Jones to have a star-studded runway.
Runway vets were everywhere, from Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell to Amber Valletta and Kristen McMenamy.
. It’s no surprise, then, that supermodels came out in droves for the pair’s union of Fendi and Versace—officially known as “Fendace”—on Sunday. “This is not a collaboration,” the designers said of the process in which each mined the other houses archives to reinterpret their codes. Instead, it’s a “coming together” of “two iconic fashion houses, or more rightly, two iconoclastic groups of people,” as well as “a celebration of Italian fashion and a to-hell-with-it disruption of the established order of things.” After all, the two houses are considered rivals, complete with different parent companies.
Donatella, Jones, and Fendi’s Silvia Fenturini Fendi made it clear they weren’t there to play from the get-go, enlistingKristen McMenamy(and her glorious silver mane) to kick things off in a classic Versace safety pin dress topped off with gold Fendi logo jewelry. From there came the cream of the crop of her veteran peers: Shalon Harlow, Karen Elson, Kirsten Owen, Mariacarla Boscono, Amber Valletta, and Anja Rubik.

But wait: There’s much, much more. Between Anok Yai, Adut Akech, He Cong, Iman Hammam, Gigi Hadid, Precious Lee, Paloma Elsesser, Stella Maxwell, Selena Forrest, and Vittoria Ceretti, the younger runway regulars actually outnumbered the forebears. Emily Ratajkowski walked her second Versace show in just a few days, and Moss’s daughter Lila stepped onto the catwalk for just the fifth time ever. Versace and Fendi logos were everywhere, along with ornate gold prints, safety pins, and glittery chainmail. The Versace references were particularly prominent; a few models even channeled Donatella with platinum blonde hair.
