In true Versace fashion, Tuesday night's H&M collaboration launch was flashy, over-the-top and ridiculously fun.

The brands took over the massive Pier 57 to stage (get ready for it!) a fashion show, a massive cocktail party, an incredible live concert by Prince, a set by Nicki Minaj and a post-performance shopping frenzy that lasted past 1:30 a.m.

The collection doesn't hit stores till Nov. 19, so attendees (including amNewYork's editors) clamored to be among the first to get their hands on the wild prints, fringed frocks and bright men's suits that filled the collection.

Naturally, the event drew tons of celebs -- Jennifer Hudson, Debbie Harry, Jessica Alba, Sofia Coppola -- and major style bloggers and street style stars, including Hanneli Mustaparta, Elin Klin and Susie Bubble.
