The Versace Safety pin dress

Long ago, before Donatella, there was Gianni. I'm talking about Versace. Possibly the most infamous red carpet dress ever worn in the time of the 90s - the Versace safety pin dress was worn by Elizabeth Hurley in 1994. V magazine recently named the dress one of the top five little black dresses ever- and rightly so. I've never loved safety pins as much as when I saw them on Joe Strummer's pants; but then I saw this dress.
