Madonna is the face of Versace's spring-summer 2015 campaign, the company announced in a news release Thursday. In it, Donatalla Versace calls Madonna "one of the true icons of Versace." This is Madonna's fourth campaign for the fashion house, for which she first struck a pose in 1995.
Alexander Wang has designed a denim collection. Which is being promoted by -- and perhaps obscured by -- some pretty racy ads, featuring a model slumping in a leather chair, with the jeans -- her only attire -- pulled down to her calves.
