Donatella Versace sat down with LOVE magazine to talk about the fashion world and her place in it. She remarked that she's never felt like a fashion icon and frequently jokes about her looks, once saying: "I don't even know what my natural colour is. Natural? What is natural? What is that? I do not believe in totally natural for women. For me, natural has something to do with vegetables."

She also reminisced about the supermodels of the '90s, remembering when "Christy, Linda, Cindy and Naomi together--they sang Freedom, and George Michael was in the audience--that was an iconic moment of fashion." But everyone didn't always get along:

"When a new girl came along, oh my God, it was like a war. The first time they got together, it was the big girls versus the new girl. I remember one time backstage: Linda needed to go on the runway. She was about to put in her fake boobs and found one of them had been taken. 'Where is my boob? Where's my boob?' she was screaming over and over."

So what does she think about the current state of fashion?

"Now is a bad moment. Now we need something. We need a special personality. We need to feed the egos of these girls. Somebody like Kristen [McMenamy] who had a huge ego. Beautiful..."
