When the news was revealed that Donatella Versace would star in Givenchy’s fall campaign, it came as a bit of a surprise. Now, the designer took to the official Versace Instagram to explain why she posed for a competing brand’s advertisements. “I believe in breaking rules. Riccardo Tisci is extremely talented and above all my dear friend,” Donatella writes. “We are family. I want to get rid of the old system, work together, support each other and make fashion a true global community.”
The campaign also stars models Mariacarla Boscono, Candice Swanepoel, Frankie Rayder, Greta Varlese, Isis Bataglia and Stella Lucia Deopito photographed by Mert & Marcus.
