Jennifer Lopez At The Grammys, Angelina Jolie At The Golden Globes - Donatella Versace Reveals Her Top Red Carpet Moments Ever!

We’d be hard pushed to pick our favourite all-time Versace moments – from Liz Hurley in that safety pin dress to the stellar couture comeback this season in Paris, this Italian fashion house is steeped in rich history despite being a relative youngster in comparison to the Vuittons or Guccis of the world. Since Gianni Versace launched the label in 1978, there have been moments a-plenty. What about Gaga’s retro Versace marathon last year? Or the H&M collabo? Ooh, or the killer Kate Moss and Gisele campaign of spring/summer'09. Well, Mr Derek Blasberg (AKA the ever-smiling Don of fashion’s social scene), caught up with Donatella to find out what her key Versace moments were and TBH, we’re not surprised by the results….

Jennifer Lopez At The Grammys, Angelina Jolie At The Golden Globes - Donatella Versace Reveals Her Top Red Carpet Moments Ever!

“The Jungle Dress worn by Jennifer Lopez to the Grammys in 2000 was an astonishing feat of fabric engineering – a flimsy thing made from just a few pieces of printed fabric,” Donatella told Derek of J Lo’s ‘I’ve-Arrived’ moment. “It was very, very sexy, and provoked a crazy reaction. Jennifer is of course a very sexy woman, but I think the Jungle Dress had special impact because it showed that she was really proud of her sensuality.”

But there’s one long-standing Versace A-lister that Donatella couldn’t possibly overlook (especially when the rumour-mill is whirring like mad over the possibility that the fashion house could be creating her wedding dress)…. A certain Angelina Jolie. She’s worn countless Versace pieces in the past, but it was the cream and red satin Atelier Versace gown for this year’s Golden Globes red carpet that really floored Donatella. “This couldn’t have been less like the Jungle Dress…” She exaplained, “This time the dress revealed almost nothing – just her elegant shoulder and neck, and a cheeky peek of leg through a thigh-high split.” And we all know Ange is a fan of that particular style trick… “This was a classical Grecian look, created by ruching and drape, and Angelina looked both extremely elegant and wonderfully sexy in it. Both dresses were very Versace, but each achieved this effect in a different way.”

    If there's one car that's particularly sought-after among today's well-heeled car collectors, a Ferrari 250 would be it. Usually it's the GTO variant, like the 1963 that sold for a record $52 million last year. A 250 of any sorts demands unfathomable cash, however, which is why we can but gawk at this 250 Testa Rossa.
