Will Demi take over from Madonna as Versace’s new face?
From Vogue.co.uk

RUMOURS abound that Demi Moore is pregnant and if they're true, she's got a new fashion friend to dress her throughout. The svelte actress and her boyfriend Ashton Kutcher were spotted having dinner with none other than Donatella Versace and Mario Testino at Jean-George's swanky new Piccadilly restaurant, V, last week, prompting rumours that she is about to take over from Madonna as the face of Versace. Surely she'd be a better than Christian Aguilera… (April 12 2005, AM)

What do we think people?

It's probably a good move if they want to class up their image a bit. But I think it's a waste of Demi Moore. Basically, I think they should just stick with their ultra-trashy stars and run themselves into the ground more.

I'm on the fence with this choice.
Demi is better looking than Madonna and also seems like a more appropriate model for the type of clothing.

However, I don't find Demi that attractive. SHe's sort of a plain Jane to me.

I think someone with striking facial features and a unique look would be a more interesting choice.

May sound funny to you all but I think Sophia Lauren or Linda Evangelista would be great for the Versace ads. For some reason I think they would better suit the Versace style.

lol the more I think about it the one major reason I find Linda and Sophia best for the job is because they're italian.

With that logic I suppose that only the English should model for Burberry and only the french models should model for Chanel.

And the Versacissima, tackyssima, oxygenated blonde is dead?? A brunette replacing a blonde? Fine with my brunette ethics, but .... a brunette can't sell tacky stuff!!
But since it's a Hollywood brunette, devil may care... If there's enough botox & photoshop, let Mario shoot the "shiny happy people" he's good at. Whatever the result might be, Versace won't change its non-model advertising "strategy"

I meant tacky in an universal sense for the Versace-Style... Versace is though, considered among the top 5 tacky brands worldwide.
But since you say your mom doesn't look tacky in Versace, it's because of her style not because of the brand. A stylish woman can wear anything, from the cheapest to the most expensive (or nothing at all ) and still look wonderful.

Well I guess that it might be the law to only speculate and not make fact unless they have proof beyond a reasonable doubt.

I bet its to avoid lawsuits.

Versace is often presented in a very tacky way, but as I'm sure Ivy's mother proves, it's all about who wears it and how.
