It’s been 20 years since the tragic death of Gianni Versace and to celebrate the late designer’s legacy, Donatella Versace hosted a very special Versace show during Milan Fashion Week today.
Along with a spring/summer 2018 collection paying homage to Gianni’s greatest designs, the original ’90s supermodels reunited on the runway for the occasion. Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Carla Bruni, and Helena Christensen all walked hand-in-hand behind Donatella for an incredible finale down the catwalk, each wearing a matching gold Versace chainmail gown. The surprise reunion made for a truly goosebumps-inducing moment:
The finale @versace_official – Donatella’s tribute to her brother Gianni Versace, 20 years after his death in 1997. It was an incredible show – and a powerful, personal memorial, from a sister to a brother, who lives on in the iconography of Versace… here she is, with Gianni’s favourite supermodels @iamnaomicampbell @helenachristensen @carlabruniofficial @cindycrawford @claudiaschiffer @bazaaruk #GianniVersace #Donatella

The mainline collection was modelled by a series of current faces including Gigi and Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Doutzen Kroes, Candice Swanepoel and Natasha Poly. The show was opened by Cindy Crawford’s daughter, Kaia Gerber, marking the first time that the two have appeared on the same catwalk.
We can’t think of a better way to honour the late Gianni Versace.
