Since I was a kid, I’ve always loved anything that’s in bright vivid colors and growing up in the 80s and 90s, when “More is more” very much the mantra in the fashion scene and glammed-up supermodels reigned supreme, of course Gianni Versace was one of the designer who inspired me to perused fashion design as an carrier.

I am sure all of the fashonistas remembered the super talented designer Gianni Versace! Whom dominated the late 80s and early 90s fashion world by storm with his vibrant, colorful & daring designs that has set himself apart from the rest of the designer & lured us into his fashion fantasy world till he was tragically allegedly killed by his casual encounter Andrew Cunanan.

After Gianni’s death, his sister Donatella Versace had shown strong courage to take over this fashion empire and continued his late brother’s legacy and successfully brought the company to a higher level of glamour & style that we all love today!

Donatella Versace (born May 2, 1955) is an Italian fashion designer, as was her brother, the late Gianni Versace, the founder of the Versace clothing brand. Her current title is Vice-President of the Versace Group and Chief Designer of the fashion line. She owns 20 percent of the entire stock market assets of Versace. Her brother, Santo Versace, owns 30 percent. Donatella’s daughter Allegra Versace inherited 50% of the company stock after Gianni Versace died.

Versace was one of the fashion house that’s responsible for the early 90s “Supermodels” phenomenon! & paid each supermodels $10,000 per show, back in the days that’s a record high price for a 30 minutes show!

Ok ok! We all have weakness for those fabulous goodies from our favorite designer brands and love treating ourselves with something pretty from their collections. But normal fashionistas like the most of us usually get a latest ” it ” bag, cashmere sweaters, shoes or sunglasses from our favorite designers, but if those items no longer tickle your fancies, then why not pick up these “Gaudy-Fab” items from the artist Peter Gronquist for his art exhibit “The Revolution will be Fabulous” in Los Angeles! So you can be shooting caribou in style! haha…. each weapon looks god-awful. That said, I’m sure they’ll sell like hot cakes. Oh wait, they have.

I think my favorite Gaudy Weapon will be the CHANEL bazooka! haha

Finally!! Marge Simpson has peeled off her tired green tube dress and cheap pearls for something just a little more FAB!! I love this Harper’s (August, 2007) spread. it’s beautifully ridiculous and so well done!

It was genius to include the ultimate supermodel
Linda Evangelista, as she is in my opinion, just as much an icon of the last decade as the hilariously jaundiced family. Watching these fabulous illustrations makes me say J’adore Bazaar! Here’s the spread itself, along with the garments the illustrations were based on from each designers.

& Donatella

Linda looks fierce as she does in the flesh and Donatella, well… Donatella kinda looks like a fleshed-out cartoon character anyway. Marge looks as fresh-faced as the day Homer married her.
