When you think of the ideal Versace woman, you probably imagine someone Amazonianly tall, endlessly leggy, extremely blonde and curvy, but in a fashion way. A supermodel, but more in the vein of Victoria’s Secret than the alien babydolls preferred by high fashion brands over the past 15 years. In short, you’d imagine Gigi Hadid, and you’d be right.
Gigi has formed a close relationship with Versace over the past few years, staring in several of the brand’s campaigns, walking its runway and, most importantly (to us), carrying its handbags while on paparazzi-covered jaunts through New York and LA. Of all the Versace bags in her closet, it seems like the Versace Palazzo Empire Mini Bag is her favorite, specifically the black-on-black version.
The small size and all-black finish help to tone down the design’s distinctive Medusa hardware just a bit, and although the bag is small enough not to be cumbersome, it’s still big enough for anything you’d need on the average Saturday. As you can see in the photos below, it also translates quite well to Saturday night.
It looks like having the supermodel’s endorsement has paid off for the bag’s popularity; we couldn’t find Gigi’s exact bag in stock anywhere, but you can pick up the taupe version for $2,162 via farfetch.com, as well as the new, all-black shoulder bag version for $1,804 via farfetch.com.
