When: January 2008
Complex says: By this time, it seemed Hip-Hop had taken a break from Versace and, instead, blew their money on brands like Louis Vuitton and Gucci. The hiatus was short-lived though. In 2008, Jay-Z, who rarely attends fashion shows, made an appearance at the Versace Men's Fall/Winter show with Beyonce and Kelly Rowland. Interestingly, there was a big scandal during the event. Apparently, Tommy Fazio, the men's fashion dirctor of Bergdorf Goodman, was asked to vacate his front-row seat for one of Bey's bodyguards. Tommy was unhappy with the request and immediately left the show and canceled his Versace showroom appointment. The good news, though, was that this was another glimpse into what looks to be the return of Versace in Hip-Hop.
