ROCK AND ROYALTY by Gianni Versace
Long before I could pronounce or afford @Versace, this book became my all-time favorite. I had an incredible roommate at University, @damongarrett who was the smartest, most cultured person I knew. Through Damon I learned about music, art, photographers and brands I never knew. He was the one who showed me ROCK AND ROYALTY, and I was obsessed. It was the height of the supermodel mania, and the Versace book was clear evidence that you could live out your hedonistic fantasies and excessive dreams. Versace's chain metal dresses were a personal favorite and I was so jealous that Prince got to wear it. Later in my career I'd live in Italy and visit my friends working at Versace. They'd teach me about Paco Rabanne's iconic chain metal dress from the 1960s as well as versions by Azzedine Alaïa and @TomFord.
