Donatella Versace should just rename herself Glamour St. Sexy, because that's all that she brings to the table whenever she's photographed. We're offended that she allows those little pre-pubescent wisps of air walk down her catwalk when every model in every show for every season should only be Donatella. She's the only piece of work that can do her designs justice. Well today, one of our favorite designers is turning the ripe old age of 56. She looks amazing, especially considering how much she's packed into those 56 years (seriously, if you don't know her and her brother Gianni's story, you should pick up House of Versace: The Untold Story of Murder, Genius and Survival-- we're not kidding when we say she's through way more than most gals her age have) and half the ladies we know under 25 would kill for that body.
