The Murder of Gianni Versace Was a Crime a Particular Nightmare Is Made Of: Inside a Most Twisted Tale

In 1997, Gianni Versace was—and his surname remains—one of the most famous brands in the fashion universe.

With a clientele that included Princess Diana and a social circle that boasted Madonna, Elton John and Naomi Campbell, he was a member of the celebrity world that he dressed (perhaps never so memorably as when Elizabeth Hurleydonned his safety pin dress in 1994, a moment that has repeatedly landed atop lists of the best red carpet moments ever) and his jet-setting ways were a testament to his financial success and his love of life.
