Let’s all raise our glasses and toast to Donatella Versace! It’s the patron saint of trashy chic’s birthday today. When it comes to making the tasteless tasteful and high-end, no one compares to the one and only Donatella Versace––not that her unparalleled uniqueness has stopped anyone from trying to replicate her tacky-yet-fancy signature look.
As a tribute for her birthday, here are 9 people who totally copped Donatella Versace’s steez:
1) Lady Gaga
This one is definitely deliberate consider their friendship and recent collaboration, but Lady Gaga’s is still perhaps the most blatant example of Donatella style-jacking.
Blonde hair? Check. Major tan? Check. Tight dress? Check. Lindsay Lohan has totally stolen Donatella’s look before.
Nice try with that dress, Madge. Close, but the skin is not tan enough and the hair is not long enough.
4) Paris Hilton
Here she is looking like Versace while wearing Versace. Not bad, Miss Hilton.
5) Nicki Minaj
If there was a soundbite attached to this picture, it would be Nicki purring “It’s me, Donatella.”
6) Val Kilmer
Other people have pointed this one out. I think it’s pretty rude, to be completely honest. Val Kilmer could never pull off Donatella’s gowns or hair extensions.
7) Daenerys Targaryen
We all know who did the long blonde hair and maxi dress thing first. I bet Donatella Versace has a few dragons just like the Khaleesi.
8) Janice the Muppet
The comparison between Janice and Donatella has been made before for good reason. This picture shows Janice tanning in order to get Donatella’s look.
9) Maya Rudolph
Another deliberate case of style-jacking! Maya Rudolph’s impression of Donatella Versace on SNL was so on point and hilarious that it will always be a feather in the blonde wig she wore during the beloved recurring sketch.
