The late Italian designer, Gianni Versace, found his namesake label in 1978. Although the label is most known for its mix of “grandiose sexiness” and “decadent European-inspired styles” (remember the infamous J. Lo dress?), few remember that the collection first started as a menswear line. Versace is now led by Gianni’s sister, Donnatella, who’s often parodied on Saturday Night Live. It also wins the award as “the designer mentioned most in corny hip-hop songs”.
