Have been waiting for this gem for 15 years..I remember watching Style with Elsa Klensch’s report on Milan Fashion Week Fall/ Winter 1997 and being mesmorized a the Gianni Versace Collection. So modern, so elegant, minimal yet exiting. He changed his runway format from fashion concert to no supermodels except his beloved Naomi, with little make-up on the fresh girls and a simple presentation featuring wearable clothes inspired by contemporary art and light. The energy was still there in the bold casting and the techno metal mesh finale of course. I was also happy to see Elsa Benitez closed the show, my fave new girl at the time because she was from Mexico. The direction Gianni Versace was going was a bold new one, designers like Miuccia Prada and Tom Ford had ushered in a new kind of “minimal” luxe and it was interesting to see how the King of Excess was changing with the times. This is the Gianni Versace I remember the most, a very intellectual designer sharply focusing on tailoring, silhoutte, and use of color and light. Tragically this would be Gianni’s last Ready to Wear Collection, but we are left with these great images of a man and his craft at the top of his game, R.I.P Gianni Versace

Amber’s bone structure is so perfect.
Girl… people are always gonna talk… I know calling someone a tranny is completely disrespectful, but I’ve always thought that embracing the words people call you allows you to become impervious to them.

Truer words have never been said! Tell the truth and shame the devil!!!
