Donatella Versace: The Most Luxurious Ice Bucket Challenge

As everyone has been noticing, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has gone viral all over the world, with everyone including high-profile celebrities jumping on the bandwagon.

I think it's great that something so simple can raise awareness and money for the cause, although I am in agreement with some of the arguments against it, especially those who claim people are now doing the challenges for their own personal recognition.

Another important thing to remember is to always put the correct donation information in your video. There's no point doing something like this and donating to a non-reputable foundation.

Okay, rant over!

Donatella Versace, one of my all-time fashion idols, has taken up the Ice Bucket Challenge in the only way she knows how: glamourously.

In the video with over 2 million views on YouTube, we see Donatella in a beautiful garden with two ripped hunks standing on either side whilst she forms a goddess-like stature.


With her signature tousled blonde hair and all-white clothing, she screams minimalist-chic, as if she just came from a beach in Santorini.

'I'm not just here to ruin my makeup, please donate to ALS', she says before getting drenched by two classic Versace vases with the iconic, golden print.

She's such a graceful woman and despite all the negative comments out there, I appreciate what she's done for the fashion industry and how she overpassed tragedy in her life to leave an unforgettable legacy behind.


I give Donatella props for giving back and doing this challenge with elegance and class!
