Donatella Versace brought sexy back with her latest collection, which was a gift to the average man (and woman).  

Fashion designer Donatella Versace has a new tagline: 'Believe in individuality and the freedom to be whoever you want to be.'

She's done with perfection, hourglass figures and hot bodies.

'I want a man who is imperfect,' she said minutes before unveiling her latest collection, which was a gift to the average person.

Her menwear 2019 collection saw several silhouettes in psychedelic colours, leather separates and animal prints. 

The designer, who presented the collection at the Milan Fashion Week, tried to revive 90s fashion by giving a huge nod of approval to knee-length boots, baggy denim pants and waistcoats.

Scroll down to take a look at some glimpses from the evening.

Meet her showstoppers Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner. 'It was a menswear show but these TWO GODDESSES walked the runway for me today! Thanks Bella and Kendall.'

'The Versace man expresses himself through his clothes without holding back, his movement is always effortlessly powerful, as he pushes every boundary and never lets go of his sense of humour. He's bringing sexy back,' the designer revealed.

It was a men's wear collection, but the show featured several female models too as the designer has always believed in blurring the lines between what men and women can wear. Photographs: Tristan Fewings/Getty Images

Bella Hadid

Along with Kendall, Bella Hadid too made a comeback on the Versace ramp this season. The model was dressed in a leather mini-dress.


Baggy pants are back.


And so are prints.

Snake print got a new meaning with Donatella using the print on clothes, hats, bags and even belts.
