Is Lady Gaga Channeling Donatella Versace?

Donatella Versace is known as much for her perma-tan and white blond hair as for her fashions (which I generally think are tickety-tackety, but c’est la vie). It seems Donatella’s look, dahling, has perhaps inspired one of the biggest artists in the world, because this is apparently Lady Gaga’s new schtick.

“I’m not like this genetically.”

Feminism Is Dead, Declares Donatella Versace

“Feminism is dead in the world. It comes from another time. I’m a feminist. I want to fight, but I don’t see many people with this desire to fight for something. Women don’t help each other, especially in fashion. I know Miuccia [Prada] … but that’s it. Nobody else.”

Yes, Versace Is Doing A Line For H&M

The Versace Family—Italian Mobsters?

The Versace family—a veritable Italian fashion dynasty—has seen its fair share of scandal and drama (deaths, unfortunate bouts of plastic surgery—we’re looking at you, Donatella).
