It feels a bit strange to write about a creative designer and their red carpet style, but when someone is as iconic as Donatella Versace you can’t miss the chance. Let’s take a look at her ensemble for the 2020 EJAF Academy Awards Viewing Party.

Donatella looked like a queen in a blue custom Atelier Versace dress boasting a ballerina neckline accentuated with bold, heritage shoulder straps crafted by hand from Swarovski Crystal Mesh.

As the creative director of the Versace brand, the items she wore were pretty much customized around her wishes and taste, hence why the models of the items will be the same she wore but with slight alterations.

Donatella accessorized the look with a matching Versace Virtus Evening Bag, matching Versace Medusa heeled sandals with square open-toe (with a more prominent heel) and Art Deco statement bracelets.


Gianni Versace‘s beloved sister is one of the patrons of the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

As a patron she helps the foundation to engage new partners, she helps promoting it and organizes fundraisers for their work to end the AIDS epidemic. Other notable patrons are Elizabeth Hurley, Sting and David Beckham among others.
