Well, yeah, suppose it can seeing as it happened before Diana and everything.
Do you remember where you were when you heard the news that Gianni Versace had been gunned down outside his South Beach villa leaving nothing but a pair of bloodied flip flops behind? It was all sort of eclipsed by Diana (remember her comforting Dame Elton John at the funeral?) who went mere months after. So much loss!
Well, you may have forgotten but the town of Milan, where he made fashion history and millions of dollars, certainly hasn’t…
Last night, in his honour, there was the gala performance of a new ballet with costumes designed by sister Nutella Versace, as well as a sort of Greatest Hits of ballets that Gianni had done the togs for.
Then there’s a city-wide gallery idea showing 100 different designs from the man who pioneered the whole transsexual hooker look the world’s women have embraced ever since. The designs are displayed on huge panels across Milan and we certainly salute them.
