Donatella Versace's Beauty Talk Is Honest — And Awesome

Is it just us, or does hanging with Donatella Versace suddenly seem like the most fun idea in the world? During a speech at the Vogue Festival on Sunday, she let it all hang out in a way we really appreciate. She answered questions about her famous face (pictured here way back in 1990), admitting that she doesn't just leave the fate of her visage to nature. "I'm not like this genetically," she explained. "I use tons of cream and take care of my hair and skin." Where she finds face creams available by the ton, we don't know, but that's just the tip of the iceberg.
Though she's known for her outrageous getups and unforgettable style, Versace doesn't think her look is such a big deal. "My style is not that big — I wear heels, tight pants and I wear diamonds," she said. Because that is how you be a boss when you're heir to one of the most recognizable brand names around. Oh, and she's not that into fitness, either: "I stopped working with a personal trainer as he wouldn't let me smoke," she explained. So, maybe she's not the world's number-one role model when it comes to working out. But, even SNL couldn't beat her full-on character of a personality. You do you, Donatella. You do you.
