Donatella Versace—sans ring. (Thanks, Liz.) Image courtesy of ImaxTree.com.
Donatella Versace was interviewed at Oxford University yesterday, and—of course—did not disappoint. After proclaiming that she wants to dress Queen Elizabeth in black leather, she told a delightful tale about the time Elizabeth Taylor robbed her. She said: “My brother collected vintage jewellery and I was wearing a ring that he had given me. Elizabeth said in this extraordinarily breathy voice: ‘Darling, I love your ring, may I try it?’ And she didn’t give it back! She put it on and breathed, “Oh darling, thank you, you didn’t have to do that.’ But I hadn’t!” [WWD]
Hey Steve Madden, what’s it like working with the Olsen twins? “Painful. Painful,” he told Fashionista. “They are very demanding, they’re very tough…they are difficult, they are exacting, they are a pain in the ass. But they’re very good though.” Madden has worked with MK and Ashley for the last five years on their Elizabeth and James shoe line, as well as a recent Superga sneaker collab. [Fashionista]
This has the potential to be either really awesome or totally awful: Devil Wears Prada scribe Lauren Weisberger has announced plans to write a sequel to the beloved book turned movie. Titled Revenge wears Prada: The Devil Returns, the story follows Andy Sachs, now the editor of a bridal magazine, who crosses paths with Miranda Priestly again. I reacted to this news the same way I reacted to the news that they’re making an Arrested Development movie. Cautious hope, and a fervent prayer to the universe: “Don’t screw it up!” [BBC]
