Gianni Versace

Yuck! I'm all for making a statement, but unless you're packing an AmEx Black Card and can spring on the couture, don't bother with this stuff. Unless you're a hip-hop superstar or a high-class call girl, chances are good that you'll look ridiculous in any of the heavy-handed looks that Donatella and her team have dreamed up, though the stores themselves are two of the most beautiful shops in town. The Versace aesthetic, applied to clothes, leaves me cold, but I swoon over the columns and crests, the silk pillows and lion's heads. Sometimes a dash of that over-the-top luxury is a nice pick-me-up.
