When Donatella Versace decides to throw a party, this is a lady who definitely doesn’t do things halfway—she goes big, and last night’s New York City bash was no exception. Held in celebration of the Italian label’s Versus Versace collection and new capsule line with Brit design hotshot JW Anderson, the fête was cool enough to give pretty much anyone a massive case of FOMO. There were parading models in lots of leather and even some dudes in crop tops, but you know what’s even more eye-popping than THAT? Grimes and Angel Haze in their amazing performance outfits, obviously. Donatella’s a lady who definitely loves her musicians (hi, Lady Gaga!), so it’s no surprise that she has her ear tuned into the latest crop of superstars. Grimes cranked up the glamour in a glittery granite-hued skirt and a top adorned with Versace’s trademark lion logo, but kept things grounded—literally—with black combat boots. Then there’s Angel, who proved that she really does run New York dressed in an oversized button-up splashed with blingy gold prints. The two artists’ performance outfits may have been on opposite ends of the fashion spectrum, but they DID have one thing in common: each girl showed off Versace’s signature medallion necklace with her look.

Also pulling out all the stops last night were fellow Versace fans like Sky Ferreira, Joe Jonas, Natalia Kills, and Theophilus London. Sky ruled it per usual in a leopard-print tunic and leather jacket, which complemented her new short crop (now with purple highlights!). And even though we never took Joe Jonas to be a Versace guy, we’re giving him a round of applause for pulling off that colorful varsity jacket with such swagger. Also nailing the style game: Natalia Kills in a patent oxblood top and rad hat, and Theophilus London in his monochrome staples.
