London: Donatella Versace loves the style of Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj because they dare to be different.
The Italian fashion designer, who took over the house of Versace following the death of her brother Gianni in 1997, says she is inspired by young people and particularly likes the eccentric singer as she is clearly not listening to the marketing people, reports contactmusic.com.
"I`m always looking at young people. Girls today love to dress up. They love the Medusa. You see it even if they just buy a belt or sunglasses. They want to look cool and sexy. They don`t want to look ordinary," she said.
"Of course, I love Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj, they`re not afraid to dare. It`s been a while since someone went out there and didn`t listen too much to the marketing people. You still have to listen to them but not 100 percent," she added.
