Donatella’s Stars

November 25th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Lady Gaga‘s surprisingly understated ad for Versace accessories is one of the most talked about campaigns of the moment, but the Versace love affair with fame goes way back. Every few seasons Donatella enlists a star from the world of film, tv or music to pout and preen in the brand’s memorable campaigns and over the years they’ve racked up an impressive array of luminaries. Versace will always be synonymous with the supermodel era but they’re equally known for their connection to the world of celebrity. Star power has always been one of the driving forces behind Versace’s appeal on and off the red carpet – take a look back at some of the famous faces to front ads for the legendary label.
