Before being allowed into the venue for yesterday's Atelier Versace haute couture show, Cathy Horyn was made to wait outside for "a perplexing few minutes ... as though [she] was not quite welcome." She then had to wait again inside, this time with other editors — who were all "naturally" complaining about the setup. (As it happened, photographers had been invited to shoot the collection before editorial press saw it, and took a few extra minutes to finish up.) All this loitering around left Cathy — and surely many other attendees — quite annoyed, and though she didn't seem to mind the clothes, she ended her review on an abrupt note: "The presentation had a tension that might have been eliminated had Ms. Versace just staged a normal show."
