Gianni Versace was a rare bird who was a master of fine detailing and high ranking creations. His work was highly original and vibrant, and he was also once discussed by Time magazine as the youngest of Milan's "young tyrants". His sister Donatella and his brother Santo took over the fashion house he created after his frightful murder in 1997. But the duo has successfully kept his legacy alive by expanding the visibility of the Versace brand globally. The label is well liked for its eye- catching and sassy siren dresses for the red carpet.
