You’ve been pronouncing Versace wrong this whole time

  • And Donatella isn't too happy about it

    Remember when we told you you’d been singing the Friends theme tune wrong this whole time? Well we hate to break to you, but we’re about to mess with your brains again.

    Because it turns out you’ve been saying Versace wrong for years too (and in case you were wondering, here is how to pronounce all the other fashion brands correctly).

    The schooling comes courtesy of Donatella Versace herself, who released a short video tutorial on Instagram as part of her AW18 campaign.

    In the clip, she and models tease, ‘It’s Versace not Versachee’. Still confused? If you say it phonetically, it should be ‘Versatch-eh’ rather than the ‘Versatch-ee’ we’ve all been saying.

    Schooling aside, the AW18 campaign stands out in its own right, as it’s the longest ever ad image, and we mean that literally, as it features 54 models posing next to each other.

    ‘This image made up of 54 models is a true representation of clans that embody everything Versace stands for – diversity expressed together with innovation in the fearless representation of what it means to be daring’ one image read.

    They added, ‘The longest Versace line up is made up of a mega mix of personalities – from super models to young new talent in looks that are all about confidence’.

    Love it.
