In 2015, 18 years after Gianni’s death, Madonna returned for another campaign. This time she paid tribute to boardroom Donatella, licking envelopes and putting her feet up on the desk as she tapped away at an Apple computer.
What is true power in fashion if not the ability to hire one of the world’s biggest celebrities to impersonate you?

Ms. Versace can barely step outside without having a drag queen approach to thank her for providing them with inspiration. Ms. Versace attributes this in part to her “acceptance” of other people, who know instinctually they can walk up to her and that she’ll be nice. “I say, ‘Hi, I’m Donatella,’ and they go, ‘Aaaah!’” she said.
But it’s her appearance, too. “The hair and make up and clothes,” she said. “I do not blend.”
Texas authorities said more charges are expected in connection with the death of 4-year-old Houston girl, Maleah Davis, but they’re urging the public to be patient as the investigation continues.
“You look at social media. They want people arrested; they don’t understand that that’s not the way investigations go,” Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said. “Justice sometimes is a marathon but we’re well into this marathon. We should have an update within the next few weeks.”
So far, 26-year-old Derion Vence, the boyfriend of Maleah’s mother, Brittany Bowens, has been charged with tampering with evidence in connection with the case. No other arrests have been made at this time.
As the search for a missing Virginia toddler continues into its fourth day, police remain hopeful they’ll find him alive, but are taking every precaution necessary, including a thorough search of a Hampton landfill.
WAVY reports that police began a second day of searching a landfill on Big Bethel Road on Thursday, following a previous Wednesday search that didn’t initially yield results. Authorities are searching for 2-year-old Noah Tomlin, who was last seen off of the 100 block of Atlantic Avenue in Hampton, wearing a diaper and a green and white pajama shirt.
According to police, the boy’s mother said she put him to bed around 1 a.m. on Sunday but by 11:35 a.m the same morning, he was missing. Authorities turned their search efforts to the landfill as a standard part of the investigation, but not because of a tip or specific information about the area.
Perhaps the overriding message of Pride Month is that pride shouldn’t be confined to just one month. With the 30 days of June about to come to a close, several of the initiatives and developments that have unfolded in recent weeks cast a watchful eye to the months and years ahead. For example, as Pride-themed commercials and sponsorships have bowed in recent weeks, Seattle-based ad agency Copacino+Fujikado (C+F) addressed the long haul, introducing its Pride Brand Guide, “Rainbow for a Cause.” Conceptualized by C+F’s LGBTQ+ employees, the guide takes the form of a microsite and walks brands through what to do–and what not to do–when marketing to the LGBTQ+ community during Pride Month and beyond.

Steven Canals is quietly sitting here. He’s wearing what he’s wearing, and no one knows that it’s this man who created the most glamorous, most ostentatious, most eleganza-packed show on TV right now. He is, after all, the co-creator and executive producer of FX’s breakout success Pose, the LGBTQ ballroom melodrama that has become a hit for not only its style but its heart. On a Wednesday morning, Canals blends in with the other New Yorkers grabbing breakfast at the Upper East Side café Irving Farm, sporting black-rimmed glasses, a neon blue sweatshirt with a pin that says “Shh. Stop Talking,” and a knapsack. The only difference is that he is, in fact, preparing for the ball, even if he doesn’t look like it.
You would also never know from Canals’s demeanor that it’s just less than a week until Pose’s Season Two premiere. There are no worry lines, no exasperation.
