Donatella Versace Plastic Surgery


Sometimes even tremendous amounts of money can’t buy beauty.

Donatella Versace, heir to the the Versace clothing brand, is one of the most powerful women in the fashion industry. Her fashion house has become synonymous with high-end glamour and sexiness, clothing celebrities like Brad Pitt, Elizabeth Hurley, Madonna, and Jennifer Lopez. But despite the respect that she has gained in the fashion world, Versace is regularly featured in tabloids and blog posts listing the worst celebrity plastic surgery disasters.

About Donatella Versace

Donatella Versace was born in Reggio Calabria, Italy, and eventually followed her older brother Gianni into the world of fashion. Donatella helped design an advertising campaign for Versace, establishing the company as a powerhouse brand. She eventually created the Versace children’s line of fashion, Versace Young, and became head designer for Versus, their more youthful and experimental fashion line.

Tragedy struck the Versace family on July 15th, 1997, when Gianni Versace became the fifth person to be murdered by serial killer Andrew Cunanan. Donatella’s daughter, Allegra Versace, inherited 50 percent of the fashion house’s stock, with 20 percent going to Donatella herself, and the rest going to her brother Santo. Donatella became Vice-President of the Versace Group and acts as Chief Designer of their fashion line.

Rumored Plastic Surgery

Once Versace became a part of the fashion industry, she became swept up in the glamourous world of celebrities, palling around with famous people like Demi Moore, Sir Elton John, Kate Moss, Christina Aguilera, and even Prince Charles. By the late 90s, Versace began to alter her looks through plastic surgery. Whether it was because she was surrounded by the rich, beautiful, and famous, or working in an industry so infamously critical of how people look, Versace continued to undergo treatment until it resulted in an overdone and unnatural appearance.

Lip Injections

Versace’s supposed lip injections are probably the most egregious of all of her plastic surgery procedures; it transformed her lips from looking naturally full, to over-injected and obviously synthetic. They seem to overwhelm her face, yet Versace has not taken any steps to have the size of her lips reduced.


It is rumored that Versace has also had a rhinoplasty, but most people want their nose be smaller, while hers has somehow become flatter and wider. This is probably due to multiple nose jobs.

Breast Implants

Versace is also rumored to have undergone the breast augmentation procedure. Because she is quite thin, yet has large, rounded breasts, experts suspect that the fashion mogul has breast implants.

Other Procedures

In addition to the plastic surgery procedures mentioned above, Versace also appears to have had BOTOX® injections or a face lift and neck lift. Her skin, especially around her jaw and face, seem to be particularly tight when compared to the skin on her arms.

Donatella Versace is a prime example of how an expensive plastic surgery job doesn’t necessarily guarantee great results. If you’re interested in plastic surgery, contact a skilled plastic surgeon in your area.
