Donatella Tells it Like it is

Chic Report will refrain from passing judgement on the intelligence of models (hey, didn't Lily Cole go to Cambridge?), but Donatella Versace is not shy about sharing her opinion. "There is an idea of neutrality in models now," she told Love. "Little make-up, no expression, like a robot... That is very stupid. It is almost as if the models have to have the appearance of something serious, to give an intellectual base, but they themselves are rarely like that." We'd be offended on their behalf--if Donatella didn't skewer herself sentences later. "And the roots of fashion are essentially fun," she continued. "It is something that women wear to make themselves feel better, that shouldn't be forgotten. When you take the joy out of fashion, it is not fashion any more. If you are going to be very clever, too clever, be a scientist. I am not a scientist."
