Donatella Versace, whose Spring/Summer 2008 collection was shown today in Milan, is one of the most famous women designing today. It's been ten years since her brother, Gianni, was shot and killed, but the Versace brand remains strong. (Gianni always considered Donatella to be his "muse and critic" — he dedicated a perfume to her (Blonde), and gave her a Versace spin-off line, Versus.) Her iconic look has been parodied on Saturday Night Live and Ugly Betty, but her clothes are always strong, sexy, fierce. Designed, no doubt, for the woman Donatella sees when she looks in the mirror. In fact, she often casts models that resemble her! In the gallery below, see how we channel what it means to be Donatella.
