Donatella Ver­sace re­mem­bers her dan­ger­ous party days in the 90s

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Donatella Ver­sace says she and her friends Naomi Camp­bell and Kate Moss were "dan­ger­ous" party girls in the 90s. The 61-year-old de­signer is great pals with the two su­per­mod­els and she ad­mits they lived life to the full when they were all start­ing out in the fash­ion busi­ness. Donatella ad­mits those times were "a lot of fun" but she even­tu­ally made the de­ci­sion to leave the late nights be­hind her to live a qui­eter life. Whilst be­ing in­ter­viewed on stage at the Teatro Pic­colo Stu­dio in Mi­lan, Italy, last week to pro­mote new book 'Donatella Ver­sace' pub­lished by Riz­zoli, Donatella was asked: "You, Naomi Camp­bell and Kate Moss were known as the 'dan­ger­ous trio'. Tell us about them..." To which the blonde star replied: "We were re­ally dan­ger­ous. Dur­ing that time, in the 1990s, you were al­lowed to do ev­ery­thing, there were no lim­its. Or at least we used to think so. We did ev­ery­thing you could imag­ine. Par­ties, events, it was a lot of fun at that time, but then at a cer­tain point I started think­ing about my life. I won­dered, 'What am I do­ing? What's my fu­ture?' "Quizzed on what made her stop par­ty­ing so much, Donatella - who has daugh­ter Al­le­gra, 30, and son Daniel, 26, with ex-hus­band, model Paul Beck, whom she di­vorced in 2000 - said: "Around 2005, 2006. I did it for my chil­dren. They didn't tell me any­thing, but I looked them in the face and I told my­self, 'I have to change for them.'" Dur­ing the talk, Donatella - who was wed to Manuel Dal­lori from 2004 to 2005 - also opened up on the sup­port her friend Madonna gave her in the wake of the shoot­ing of her brother Gianni Ver­sace on 15 July 1997 at the hands of An­drew Cu­nanan. The Vice Pres­i­dent of the Ver­sace Group ad­mits she will never for­get that Madonna was there waiting for her at her brother's house af­ter she landed in the Amer­i­can city from Mi­lan the day af­ter his tragic death. She shared: "I en­tered the house and there was Madonna waiting for me. I'll never for­get what she did; she was there be­cause she wanted to sup­port me. She hugged me, she stayed with me for many, many hours. I never thought to find her there waiting for me. I'll be al­ways grate­ful for that."
