Italian designer Donatella Versace was presented with the Fashion Icon award at the 2017 Fashion Awards.
There really is no stopping Donatella Versace, winner of this year’s Fashion Icon accolade at The Fashion Awards 2017.Most people are looking to slow down their careers as they enter their 60s, but the Italian designer appears to be accelerating hers.Love or hate her eye-catching designs and say what you will about her own looks, there’s no denying Donatella’s influence on the fashion industry and her success.Aged 62, she’s artistic director and vice-president of a company with an annual revenue of £592m. A company, you most likely know, that fell into her lap two decades ago after the murder of her older brother Gianni. A shooting so shocking and unexpected it’s being turned into a TV mini series in early 2018. Penelope Cruz will play Donatella. Assuming such responsibility wasn’t natural for the designer. “In the years immediately after the murder, Donatella looked at times like a woman overwhelmed,” published The Guardian. “With the Barbie hair and the carefree partying, it was as if she continued playing the role of Gianni’s doll even when he was gone.”And Donatella herself agrees entirely that she wasn’t ready for the role. “For the first five years, I was lost,” she said. “I made a lot of mistakes.” Mistakes included battling an 18-year cocaine addiction.But she found her voice and her own way of doing things and today there are very few designers A-listers would rather be dressed by.Her real success started in 2005 when an advert hit headlines thanks to the female empowering image it portrayed: Madonna as a high-level working woman dressed in Versace.And who could forget that plunging dress worn by Jennifer Lopez to the Grammys in 2000 or when the Beckhams twinned in all-leather Versace looks?The 5ft 2in star is a master in socialising, which could well be the key to her success. She knows how to stay on top of who’s current and worth being seen with.She’s close friends with Naomi Campbell and numerous other supermodels, posts selfies with Lewis Hamilton, works with Zayn Malik and has dressed everyone from Kylie Jenner for the 2017 Met Gala and Lady Gaga for the Super Bowl.Above, her most memorable fashion moments.Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for non-stop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, and Helena Christensen recreated a famous 1994 Versace ad campaign shot by Richard Avedon — with a 2017 twist.
Donatella Versace has been at the helm of one of Italy’s leading fashion houses since 1997 – the year her brother Gianni was tragically murdered.Always designing clothes that aim to empower women and give them freedom, Donatella is a prime example of not pleasing anyone but yourself.Now 61, she has certainly transformed over the years and is (unfortunately) primarily known for her cosmetic appearance. With a book on the way and Lady Gaga playing her in an upcoming crime series, we run through her various looks over the years.This is the world’s most desirable face, apparentlyWhat it’s really like to have lip fillers
London Fashion Week never draws in quite as many celebrities as New York Fashion Week. The Italian brand, which celebrates its 20th birthday this year, has shown in Paris for the last few seasons, but Donatella made the decision to bring her SS17 show to London - much to our delight. The show played out without the leadership of Anthony Vaccerllo, following his appointment as Hedi Slimane’s successor at Saint Laurent.
Jenny just found herself on a new block! On Wednesday, J.Lo kicked off her Las Vegas residency for Jennifer Lopez: All I Have, making her mark on the storied strip just like fellow songstresses Cher, Mariah, and Céline. And it wouldn’t be a Lopez production without costumes that are bright, tight, and sparkly. Before slipping into a form-fitting Gabriela Cadena white dress to celebrate her opening night, the 46-year-old (what!?) took to the stage in seven next-to-naked (plus or minus some pelage and plumage) ensembles created by some of her favorite designers. Zuhair Murad was the force behind three looks. Another three, designed by Donatella Versace with the help of costume designers Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn, were emblazoned with 260,000 Swarovski crystals in a wide range of colors to make crystal-mesh panels and 100 feet of jeweled chains. As if those numbers don’t subdue the surprise factor, Vogue reports that the three outfits took more than 1,400 hours and over two months to create. Just because she sang “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” doesn’t mean the same holds true for the bedazzling costumes!Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
