From Fashion Designers as Rappers to Cartoon Fashion

 - Feb 3, 2012
These days, fashion designers have become as recognized as the models who wear their designs on the catwalk, and these Donatella Versace innovations demonstrate why the Versace head designer and creative director is one of the most respected and renowned designers in the industry.

Whether she is being applauded for her work at the house of Versace or being mocked for her orange skin complexion (which could give the Jersey Shore housemates a run for their money), Ms. Donatella is nothing short of a fashion icon and living legend.

The 56-year-old Italian designer took over the fashion brand after her brother and founder of the label, Gianni Versace, was murdered in 1997. Whether you love her or hate her, these Donatella Versace innovations make it hard to deny her legacy in the fashion world.
