About this title

Synopsis:

Gianni Versace's homes--the lakeside villa in Como, the baroque palazzo in Via Gesu, his sun-filled deco fantasy in Miami, and his neoclassical Manhattan touwnhouse--reflect his sensual appreciation of style, comfort, and beauty. Do Not Disturb provides a playful peek behind the closed doors of Versace's homes, as seen through the lens of some of the world's most accomplished photographers, including Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton, and Steven Meisel. 650 illustrations, 500 in color.

Review:

Ah, naughty Gianni! The front cover of Do Not Disturb shows Versace himself in a Renaissance pose, wrapped in a sumptuous silk quilt; what you can't see on this page is the back cover, on which a nude Claudia Schiffer, hair snaking around her beautiful shoulders like a Teutonic Medusa's, gives you a come-hither stare as she toys with the same strategically placed quilt. Versace, before his untimely death in 1997, had perfected the art of living voluptuously, and these photographs--about half of which include perfect, mostly naked people romping gleefully through the sybaritic surroundings of Versace's various homes (in Milan, Miami, and Lago di Como)--are a testament to his great ability to elevate the beautiful to icon status. For its sheer, amazing gorgeousness, this may be the most wonderful (and one of the most poignant) lifestyle books of the last few years.
