Well, if you have several thousand to burn on a dress, ante up.

Versace Spring Summer 2013

Consistent if not particularly notable fare—none as riveting as that which brother Gianni created in the ’90’s…but, it could be hard to live in the shadow of such creative genius. Gianni was murdered in front of his South Beach Miami Mansion (aka Casa Casuarina) on July 15, 1997 by Andrew Cunanan. (His official funeral was at the Milan Cathedral and attended by such luminaries as Princess Diana, Sir Elton John, Giorgio Armani and Madonna.)

One of the highlights of Donatella’s career as the creative head of Versace came when Jennifer Lopez wore her green “Jungle” print dress to the Grammy awards in 2000.

Not surprisingly Lady Gaga is also a Fan.

My favourite:

Most of the models, coincidentally look like Donatella in her fantasy life.

Not surprisingly, her daughter–Allegra–is also living in HER mother’s shadow.
(Which is just as well as her plight with anorexia has left her too slight to cast a shadow of her own.)
