Omi, I first met you when you were 16. Gianni was transfixed, he said she’s so beautiful, she IS the Medusa! Today is your birthday, you should be so proud of yourself, for all that you’ve achieved and all those you’ve helped along the way. You are a friend, a fighter and an AMAZING gossip!!!😉 Happy Happy Birthday Naomi, I love you ❤️
What a campaign! Nadja, Christy, Claudia, Cindy and Stephanie - all goddesses! This was Fall/Winter ‘94 shot by the legendary Richard Avedon who’s birthday it would have been today. ❤️
This was New York, Jan 28, 1995. Here I am with my brother Gianni and Elton. We were attending a charity event to raise funds for Elton John’s Aids Foundation. Elton was one of the very first to be bold enough to stand up and do something to battle the AIDS crisis. My brother was bold enough to be one of the first to come out and publicly support him. Two truly great men. I am blessed to still have Elton as my friend and to have had a brother like Gianni. ❤️❤️
Tonight we would have been together in New York to attend the Met Gala. The event is to help raise funds for the the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. This year that won’t be possible. These images are some magical moments from Met Gala’s past! Enjoy!!! 💋💋 #MetGala
Grateful for the simple things today 🙏🏼✌🏻😘
I’m so excited for Gigi and Zayn!!! Congratulations guys!!!! Such a joy to have good news like this and right now! It will be the worlds most gorgeous baby!!! 😘💋
Here I am with my brother Gianni in New York, attending the #MetGala , it was May 1993. Gianni that night was my stylist. I couldn’t give my opinion on one thing. He chose my clothes, my hair, my makeup and my jewelry. I didn’t have a say in ANYTHING! The bondage top, the leather skirt and tall black boots with gold chains were all from our fall 92 collection, entitled “Miss S&M”! 💋💋
#25aprile . Non dimenticare. Oggi più che mai è importante ricordare questo momento storico che ci ha reso un Paese libero. 🇮🇹✌🏼 . 25th of April is a special day for us in Italy, we celebrate our freedom and the beginning of a new era for us all. 💋💋
Ok. Now this was December 1998 in Los Angeles. Here I am with M, she is looking gorgeous-as always. We went to support a women’s cancer charity event called the Fire and Ice ball. Those of you who are Madonna fans like me, will know right away this was during the time of her amazing Ray of Light album. M has been the star of no less than 4 of my Versace advertising campaigns.... so far. More than that she has been my dear friend for more years than I want to remember!
From the freshness of the snow, to the perfume of the trees, to the beautiful oceans. We must protect our beautiful fragile earth for ourselves and for the generations to come. That's our goal and that's what we must fight for. To mark the 50th anniversary of Earth Day I am proud that Versace has pledged to achieve net zero emissions and source 100% renewable energy by 2025. #EarthDay2020 #EarthDay We may be separated right now, but remember, we are all on this planet together 🙌 💋
October 4th 2003: I wanted to share this photo with you all next because I see it reposted over and over again on Instagram. Also because I remember having so much fun. So this was in Milan and it was the party after my fashion show. We are in the apartment that was my brother Gianni’s and I’m sat with these two amazing Divas. Mariah Carey on one side and Beyoncé on the other - Can you imagine? We basically gossiped and laughed for hours and hours and then we danced all night. I remember this like it was yesterday... but looking at my phone, I realize it’s not... 😂😅 ❤️💋❤️💋 @mariahcarey @beyonce
Recently I've had the time to indulge in looking through some old pictures. I'm going to share some of these memories with you over the coming days. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I do. I'm proud for the very first one to be of one of the women I admire most in this world- @michelleobama . On the 18th of October 2016 it was my deepest honour to dress the First Lady of the United States in Atelier Versace on the occasion of the state visit of the Prime Minister of Italy. Mrs Obama chose this wonderful rose gold chainmail for her dress. It was the perfect choice and she looked stunning as she walked out onto the steps of The White House and simply shone alongside the President. It remains one of the proudest moments of my career and like many, I miss them both very much. #staysafe #stayhome #iorestoacasa
Today we are all back in front of our computers and working hard. I love to see and interact with my teams, they make me laugh and sometimes it’s almost like we are all together again. But remember this today: you are not just working from home. You are home in a crisis, trying to work. Do your best! Donatella 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻 💋 #AtHomeWithVersace #stayhome #staysafe #united
One positive thing at this time is that I’ve never had so much time for my books. Books are a passion of mine and when I’m not working, it’s usually what you’ll find me doing. Although, as always, I have a stack of new books to get through, I find I’m turning to my old favorites. They are comforting somehow, like old friends. Most importantly I have realized these old books have been through the toughest of times with me and we made it. Just like now, I know together, we will make it through this time. #AtHomeWithVersace #stayhome #staysafe #united
I wanted to share a private moment and some of my thoughts with all of you. I know things are not easy right now and that we are all being asked for a prolonged – but necessary - sacrifice. It is a deeply sad moment and the unjust suffering we all see daily, simply breaks my heart. I want to remind you all, that we are all in this together. As long as we are united I know we WILL win this battle. 💋💋 #stayhome #staysafe #united #athomewithversace
I’m a proud patron of the Elton John AIDS Foundation. The millions of people around the world who are HIV positive and not on treatment are extremely vulnerable to COVID-19, they need our support now more than ever. Please follow @ejaf to learn more. ❤️ 💋💋 #eltonjohnaidsfoundation #stayhome #staysafe #ejaf
La creatività non si ferma mai. Questo sketch che ho fatto per @vogueitalia vuole essere un modo divertente per mandare un messaggio di solidarietà e supporto. Perché sono sicura che, quando torneremo alle nostre vite, lo faremo con rinnovata generosità e con l’altruismo che abbiamo dimostrato durante queste settimane. Insieme ce la faremo! DV❤️ . I created this sketch for the April issue of @vogueitalia to bring some joy and spread a message of positivity at this time. I am sure of one thing already, that when this is all over, we will return to our lives with a new generosity and selflessness that we have all learnt in these past weeks. Together we can make it! DV 💋💋💋 #stayhome #iorestoacasa #forzaitalia
Although we are all working from home, everyday I look forward to seeing my teams, not just to work hard, but to laugh and chat with everyone, that is just as important. 💋 #stayhome #staysafe . Anche se lavoriamo da casa insieme tutti i giorni, non vedo l’ora di rivedere il mio team. Non solo per finire i nostri progetti, ma soprattutto per scherzare e chiacchierare con tutti loro, che è altrettanto importante! ❤️ #iorestoacasa
The global crisis that’s hitting us so hard has underlined even more that we are all one and that we need to work together to overcome the Coronavirus. My gratitude goes to all the doctors, nurses and the entire Italian health system that is working so hard to get us all over this terrible moment. I wanted to thank the Chinese delegation of experts that has just arrived in Rome, having brought vital medical equipment and medicines. Let’s be strong, let’s fight this together and let’s all be safe! Donatella Versace
