If you're one of Versace's 13 million Instagram followers, you were inundated with over a dozen new images from the brand's campaign today. The impressive model lineup includes Kaia Gerber, Imaan Hammam, Gigi and Bella Hadid, Stella Maxwell, and more. But it was one Instagram that caught our eye: a video of Donatella and company explaining that we've been saying Versace all wrong.

As the new video explains, it's actually "Ver-sah-chay" not the commonly said "Ver-sah-chee." In other words, the ending is pronounced like the Dolce in Dolce & Gabbana. And whatever you do, don't pronounce it "Ver-sayce" like Elizabeth Berkley's character in Showgirls (see below). Scroll down so Donatella and the Hadid sisters can show you how it's done and shop our picks from the brand.
