Warning: These Old Versace Pictures Might Stop You From Doing Any Work

Versace is one of the biggest talking points for the upcoming season, thanks to Donatella's outstanding tribute collection to her late brother Gianni Versace in which she revisited his archive designs from 1991 to 1995. At the show in Milan, Carla Bruni, Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Helena Christensen walked to George Michael's Freedom in fitted metallic gowns while the likes of Gigi Hadid and Kaia Gerber wore the house's signature pastels and loud baroque prints. These garish vintage styles suddenly feel relevant again, so much so that Net-a-Porter has quadrupled its buy of the brand for next season. To celebrate the Versace revival, we take a look back at some of the most iconic moments from the archive.
