The Original Supermodels Reunited For Gianni Versace Tribute in An Epic Fashion Moment

In a fitting tribute to the late Gianni Versace, murdered twenty years ago, his sister and successor Donatella staged the most memorable show of the Spring Summer 2018 Collections season.  Reviving Gianni’s most iconic prints, the “Animalier”, ‘Baroque”, and “Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe” were applied to new shapes and silhouettes that still stand for powerful women comfortable in their own femininity, every bit as much as Gianni’s designs.

While the styles were updated, Donatella brought back the print on print designs, printed leggings, and bodysuits, which were a trademark of the house back in the eighties and nineties.   Gianni worshipped women and elevated five of his chosen models of the day to, in his words, “Goddess” stature.  In a fashion world first, these same supermodels Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen, and Carla Bruni were reunited in a stunning tableau wearing golden gowns, before taking to the runway in true supermodel style to George Michael’s “Freedom” in a grand finale. 

This season’s models including Cindy Crawford’s daughter Kaia Gerber showcased today’s designs in a modern, fresh way, bringing Gianni’s glamor and sophistication to a new generation.  Just as the supermodels still reign as industry icons twenty years on, Gianni’s love of women, his luxurious creations, and joy for life are a part of fashion history. 

We’d love to see more of these gorgeous supermodels who are every bit as relevant today as they were twenty years ago. Let’s hope it isn’t another twenty years before they reunite again.  Donatella has carried the torch of the Versace label in her own grand style, while never forgetting where it all began.  With Gianni.
