Oh we do love a fashion flashback here at Grazia Towers, and seeing as it's Milan Fashion Week and the Versace show was yesterday, it seems like the perfect time to delve into the Donatella Versace archives. Dontcha think? The best thing about a Donatella Versace retro special is that there are plenty of cameos from the likes of Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell. Our very own Prince Charles even makes an appearance!
Donatella has always been, well, Donatella. She's always had the yards of platinum hair, the perma-tan and the leopard-tastic wardrobe. Back in the 80s she looked just like Lady Gaga, with her black bondage dresses and thigh flashing gowns. Donatella often looks back to the 80s and 90s, as she stays true to the house's past. She has said in an interview about modern fashion: 'Now everything is the same, I find. Maybe it’s not the fault of the photographer, it’s the fault of the commercial factor. The commercial part is very important because you need to be real, but it’s also important to be fearless.' Fearless you are Donatella.
If you want to see more retro pictures, we've also given Anna Wintour the same treatment, revisiting her vintage style. These days the most outlandish thing you'll catch her in is Prada florals or a teal leather coat. But even fashion's gatekeeper didn't escape the 80s without a skeleton (or ten) in her closet. Next up we raided Andre Leon Talley's archive, bringing you some hilarious pictures of him and his capes.
So what are you waiting for? Flick through the Donatella archives in the gallery above...
