Emily Ratajkowski is the face of Versace SS23 and we can’t get enough of their collaboration.

We thought Em Rata wearing purple from head-to-toe was a one off occasion last week, when she delivered the commencement speech at Hunter College in New York City wearing a purple graduation gown and hat.

Well, we thought wrong. The supermodel continued with the same colour palette for a more fashionable affair, wearing the ultimate slip dress and Grecian veil at Versace’s SS23 couture show in Paris yesterday. 

The 31-year-old nailed the ‘Greek Goddess’ dress code, as she sported the look to promote Versace’s new Greca Goddess collection. Donatella Versace posted images of Emily in the violet ensemble saying: “My new campaign starring @emrata. Emily you look out of this world in this collection! ?”

Emily looked ethereal in a satin slip dress with mega thigh-high splits. The criss-cross spaghetti straps, lace adornment and low-cut neckline made for the ultimate sultry look. The ensemble was accessoried by delicate fingerless gloves, and a purple veil with a dazzling diamond tiara to keep it in place. 

Purple symbolises royalty, so Donatella wearing the same hued dress for her appearance on Em Rata’s High Low podcast last week was absolutely warranted. The designer mogul told Emily about using the power of femininity: “Fashion was full of rules'' she said. Explaining that she and Gianni realised that women didn't need grey suits to be accepted and powerful she tells Emily: : “Women don’t really need that, we need to use our femininity, inner-self and the personality. Show who you are. It was not about being sexy, it was about being a woman”.

This feminity is reflected in its new Greca Goddess campaign – a collection of bags adorning the Greca symbol.

We’re not sure which shot of Emily from Paris is our favourite: one of her sitting on Versace-gold throne (where she belongs), or lying down in a glass window leaving onlookers super confused…

We know where we’re getting our bridal style inspo from this season…
