The Versace Legend

Author(s): Minnie Gastel


An intimate portrait of an incredibly talented and respected fashion icon, this biography traces Gianni Versace's life from his youth in Reggio Calabria, Italy, to his early shows at museums in Milan to his untimely, tragic murder by serial killer Andrew Cunanan in Miami. An extraordinary talent with an appetite for world cultures, a nostalgia for the past, and an ability to artistically anticipate the future--all of which manifests itself in his glamorous designs worn by Elton John, Princess Diana, The Notorious B.I.G., Elizabeth Hurley, and many other movie stars, models, and celebrities--Versace's name is equated with beautiful women, grandiose sexiness, and decadent boldness. This account looks beyond the icon, detailing his home and personal life, including relationships with his lovers and with his sister and brother, who both currently run the Gianni Versace clothier.
