She's always had a strong sense of style. 1
Donatella is pictured here with singer Elton John at the Just Say Yes Benefit for the Phoenix House back in March of 1990. She’s clearly always had a love of tanning, but her face looked untouched, natural, and radiant.
Her tan kept getting darker. 2
Later that year, Donatella attended the Paris Haute Couture Show and Cocktail party with her brother Gianni Versace, looking even tanner and glowy. We’re loving that outfit too!
Her appearance really started to change in 1995. 3
This picture of the Italian fashion designer partying with Jennifer Lopez at Limelight in New York is everything. Those long platinum strands look dope. Her face was also starting to look a lot tighter and tucked.
She was working it in 1998. 5
She looked absolutely fabulous while speaking at a press conference at the Beverly Hills Hotel for the Fire and Ice Ball annual event, alongside supermodel Cindy Crawford and socialite philanthropist Lilly Tartikoff Karatz. Though you could clearly tell she had gotten a bit of work done at this point, she still looked like her amazing self!
Donatella starting showing off a much darker tan in 2001. 6
Her lips also looked plumper and she owned it!
She went blonder in 2002. 7
Donatella held off on the fake tanning, and started modeling a slimmer, more natural look. Her hair was also a lot more platinum.
The tanning came back in 2004. 8
So did the long, yellow-ish blonde strands.
She got slimmer in 2005. 9
The designer stuck to her signature tanned complexion and super blonde hair too.
In 2008 Donatella's face started looking significantly plumper. 11
We don't know what she was getting done, but the change was obvious.
She got really tiny in 2009. 12
She was snapped looking skinnier than ever at the Whitney Museum Gala in New York City. Seems like she was inspired by her runway models.
Her makeup got bolder and more intense by 2010. 13
She kept her makeup very fashion forward with dark, smoky eyes and nude lips.
Her face looked tighter in 2015, but she was doing her thing. 14
Her sleek blonde cut was also insanely chic!
She remained significantly slim in 2014. 15
She managed to maintain a slim and toned figure while also sticking to her signature beauty look.
In 2017 she was still killing it. 16
The designer was honored at the 2017 British Fashion Awards and received the Fashion Icon Award for her work as artistic director of Versace. She dressed to impress in a printed Versace gown (of course) while rocking a sleek blonde bob. Her face has definitely changed over the years, but it hasn’t made her any less fab!
