Yesterday we saw a few fairly sexy pics of aging fashion designer Giorgio Armani showing off what his mama gave him while rockin’ the speedo on the beaches of St. Bart’s this week and today we get to see a couple pics of another aging fashion designer, Donatella Versace, looking anything but sexy in her two-piece bikini as she vacays in St. Bart’s … the words “emaciated” and “leathery” come to mind … behold:
As one of the world’s top designers, Donatella Versace creates fashion, not follow it. But as the Italian designer approaches her mid-fifties, she appears to be have found inspiration for her over-tanned, wrinkly appearance. After showing off her gaunt, mahogany body on a Caribbean beach yesterday, Donatella is looking increasingly like ‘tanorexic’ pensioner Magda from the 1998 movie There’s Something About Mary.
Both Donatella and Magda have matching dark tans, wrinkled skin, bleach blonde hair and have a penchant for wearing full make-up in the sun. In the classic gross-out comedy, veteran actress Lin Shaye played the sun-obsessed next door neighbour of Cameron Diaz’s character Mary. In the movie, bleach-blonde Magda spends her day out drinking and tanning on the balcony holding a reflector under her chin to get the maximum exposure to the sun’s rays. Mother-of-two Donatella, 53, is currently spending the Christmas and New Year period on the island of St Barts. After what has been yet another busy year for the fashion designer, the stress of running one of the world’s top labels appears to be taking its toll on Donatella. As she walked along the beach in her purple string bikini, her skin seemed a leathery shade of brown, as it sagged around the knees, arms and stomach, suggesting she has lost weight recently.
Yeesh … any state of undress is not a good look for poor Donatella. I don’t really see the appeal of such a leathery looking tan. Yeah, I could really do without having to see any more photos of Ms. Versace on such display … where’s Giorgio Armani when you need him?
