Donatella Versace is the new star of the AW2015 season at Givenchy! No, not a typo: Ricardo Tisci, the creative director of Givenchy fashion house has already posted their first photo (above) on Instagram.
Givenchy writes fashion history with the 2015 fall-winter campaign: it has happened before that a big fashion house asked arguably young or really old, extremely thin or obese models, but never any of them has asked the biggest competitor to front the new show.
Until now! The creative director Riccardo Tisci has asked the 60-year-old the designer (Donatella celebrated her 60th birthday on May 2, on the same day when Royal Baby 2: Charlotte Elizabeth Diana was born), who was happy to say yes to a friend. Because the designers have been friends for ages, since first meeting at a Vogue Italia dinner a decade ago.
The news was announced by Tisci himself on the official Instagram page of Givenchy with this black and white photo, writing: "So proud and honored to introduce my new ultimate icon : Donatella Versace....” And of course, Donatella paid the favor back by tweeting the image from Versace's account with the words: "For my talented friend Riccardo. Together we break fashion boundaries today!"
What do you think? Will Versace’s style appear in the fall-winter collection, or it's “just” the best campaign of this year?
