It was hard to ignore the overtures of Donatella Versace’s Lady Gaga worship at Atelier Versace’s spring 2014 couture showing. Every piece screamed Lady Gaga should totally wear that, and the designer even sampled Gaga’s song “Donatella” for the soundtrack. So, naturally, it would make sense that the singer would be allowed to take items from
her own closet the couture collection. Donatella allowed Gaga to take the most show-stopping piece — a crystal mesh hood and white fur coat — to wear to the after-party. While it was a symbol of their mutual love for each other, it was also supremely annoying to editors and hopeful couture customers who wanted to get their hands on that priceless, one-of-a-kind little number.
At this point, Donatella has made it pretty clear that she prefers Gaga to all other people — and that all runway shows will henceforth be known as Donatella Presents: The Little Monster Tribute Show. Gaga even even tweeted a taunting little message to all the editors that would not get to see the piece up close: “Me, Riccardo Tisci, Donatella Versace and Franca Sozzani. In White fur crystal hood #offtherunway.” (Subtext: Deal with it, bitches.)
