The 90’s are famous for the appearance of supermodels, these extremely beautiful creatures that have emerged as if to bring an ode to absolute femininity, sensuality, to the magnetic perfection and beauty of human body, and I mean these beauty icons like Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell and Cindy Crawford. Cindy, now at 51 years-young, was one of Gianni Versace‘s favourite models in the 1990. InStyle March 2018 issue has the supermodel talk about the power of Gianni and ‘That’ moment that changed everything in fashion.
“Versace celebrated powerful women but also beautiful and sexy women who are unapologetic about not being a victim,” said the brunette beauty.
“With the generation before us, there were show girls, and there were print girls, and very few did both. Gianni was the first to say, ‘I want the women in my campaign to also be on the runway.’ It was palpable that something had shifted.” – Crawford says.
“Gianni loved women and wanted them to feel beautiful in the clothes. Donatella was probably his first muse. She was always around, helping choose what we would wear and what she thought was important to him.” – Cindy remembers.
Gianni’s sister, Donatella Versace says: “I was the one who pushed Gianni to do things his own way, to break the rules. I had to put on a mask. I had to be strong for me, for my children, for all the people who worked at Versace. I admit I was very insecure for a long time, but today no more. Maybe it was the tribute collection that finally freed me of the burden I had and made me see the light, but I can say I feel liberated from the demons of the past. I am stronger and more focused.”
