Donatella and Me: Tweet Tweet

Donatella and Me: Tweet Tweet


>> The Donatella & Me project is coming to a climax as Donatella herself will take to Twitter on 11th Octobe, answering questions from myself, other bloggers and everyone else in the world.  That's 17.00 CET, so err…. 16:00 UK time, 11:00 New York time… so on and so forth.  It's all in aid of the launch of V-Commerce as Versace's e-shop is now fully online.  Like I said, you gotta take joy in flora flage bomber jackets, baroque-a-lot plates and clothes for little toddlers that are just a touch extravagant.       

I already got the Question Time ball rolling in Milan when we were given a few minutes of one-on-one time with the lady herself.  I probed her about the perceived tackiness of Versace and whether blondes do indeed have more fun.  She graciously answered with that deliciously thick accent of hers.  I looked like I had inappropriately stepped into that room with my comforting print Suno outfit on.  She looked all gym-bod and manicured in a black trouser suit.  Ah the surreal collision of two worlds!

    Grteat questions to such a powerhouse! Such an interesting woman. She embodies that Italian sexiness and she doesn’t seem to be losing it as she ages! Unlike other women her age she counterbalances her more youthful outfits with conservative, toned down styling and like Margherita Missoni, is the perfect representative for her brand!

    Brilliant interview, Susie! I feel obliged to give you another massive thumbs-up, not just because of the fact you managed to get an interview with THE Donatella Versace, and not just because you managed to keep the interview in question fun yet focused throughout, but because you didn’t suddenly convert into a gushing, fashion fan-girl half the way through!
    Best Wishes,

    Wow! Were you nervous?
    I’m so glad radio interviews are normally over the phone, I normally go shy and weird when I interview folk in person

    Loved this short interview!!
    I couldn’t get the first answers by Donatella (Is it only me that didn’t understand?).
    She was sharp with her answers about Versace being tacky… they actually got me thinking a bit 🙂

    Finally, I have a glimpse of how Versace look like. She looks simple and confident in her black suit and blonde hair.
