Born in 1946, Gianni Versace presented his first fashion collection in Milan in 1978 and his first Atelier collection in Paris in 1989. He has won a Stanley Award, two Cutty Sarks, and the C.F.D.A. Award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America. He first designed theater costumes in 1983 for La Scala in Milan, and has since collaborated with Robert Wilson, Maurice Béjart, Roland Petit, and Twyla Tharp on operas and ballets around the world.

Review:

The title of fashion designer Gianni Versace's new book references his diverse clientele, who not only wear his clothing but also impact his designs: rock & roll queens Tina Turner and Madonna, fashion princesses Kate and Naomi, design lords Lagerfeld and Armani, and even the real deal, Diana, Princess of Wales. Photos of these and other fashion mavens, both in and out of Versace clothing, are interspersed with images of royalty throughout history, such as Queen Victoria, Empress Catherine of Russia, and a young Queen Elizabeth. The aesthetic juxtaposition of history and modernity, depicted in black-and-white photographs and colorful artwork, echoes the energy of the fashion world and captures the influential style of its inhabitants. The royalties from the sale of Rock and Royalty will benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
