Versace's Return Trip... Little Black Dress Auctions Celebrity Gowns...

Versace is returning to its roots by once again holding its men's show on Jan. 17 at the company's Via Gesù headquarters.

PICTURE THIS: For the spring Araks lookbook, designer Araks Yeramyan handed over the photo assignment to Julie Gilhart, Sally Singer, Robert Geller, Magnus Berger, Eva Fontanelli and a few others whom she thought would capture the essence of her brand. The chosen 13 each were sent a disposable camera, a set of lingerie and zero instructions. The end result hangs together surprisingly well even though none of the mostly rookies saw any of the prints — including their own.

Gilhart, who hosted a celebratory dinner Wednesday at The Smile, said, "It was hard not knowing what the shot looked like. We're so used to digital cameras." It is still up in the air as to what her post-Barneys move will be.

Yeramyan, on the other hand, was certain that she will pursue more ventures along these lines. "I love doing things that scare me — you have to. Otherwise, it's boring," she said.
