Donatella Versace: Sexy is always stylish

Donatella Versace says "sexy" will never go out of fashion.

The Italian designer and vice-president of the Versace group is well known for creating bold patterns and figure hugging shapes.

Donatella is adamant that no matter how often trends change, her customers always want to look and feel great.

"Today, people want to dare, they want to be different and there is not the minimalist trend which allows that," she told French Vogue. "And everyone wants to be sexy: girls and guys, men and women, and you need to think about that when you're creating a collection. In fashion, only sexy won't go out of fashion."

The label has created some of the most talked about gowns in the world, including the plunging Jungle Dress which Jennifer Lopez wore to the Grammy Awards in 2000.

Donatello also admitted that she always tried to look her best.

The 56-year-old has a love of diamond jewellery. She also has to have her own personal hair stylist to tend to her long blonde locks, no matter what the occasion.

"Diamonds are one of my whims," she announced. "And another one is to have my hairdresser with me all the time, for my public appearances as well for my private life."
