Beyond the gorgeous gowns, the FX Networks depiction, the movie cameos, how much do you really know about Donatella Versace?
Ahead of the 2018 Met Gala, where the Italian designer will serve as co-chair, we’re remembering the fashion icon’s most memorable quotes.

Ultimately, there’s a reason why the designer is one of the biggest leaders in the industry right now—and it’s not just because she rolls deep in celebrity friends. The blonde bombshell uses her brand as a platform to have a perspective—it may not appeal to everyone but it’s artistic, real and, yes, very expensive.
