Donatella Versace Does Ice Bucket Challenge, Nominates Pharrell And Prince

Published

Donatella Versace is doing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in probably the most glamorous way possible.

Unlike other celebrities who have done their ice bucket challenges with regular buckets of water next to their pools or in their back yards, Donatella decided to kick things up a notch. For her 25-second video, the italian fashion designer replaced the usual friend holding a bucket of ice with two shirtless male models wearing gold chains and holding Versace ceramic vases.

Before getting drenched with the water, the 59-year-old nominates Prince, Pharrell, and Spanish film director Pedro Almodovar.

Do you think Donatella will sway Prince into drenching himself in ice cold water? Let us know in the comment section.

Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like. Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women’s complexion, hair style and texture.

For their part, Grazia apologized, essentially blaming the photographer.
