Versace’s Yellow Diamond Is Abbey Lee’s Best Friend
Versace is on a bit of a tear at the moment. Following a smash-hit Spring show and record-breaking sales at the retail level with its first capsule collection for H&M (a second line is reportedly already in the works), the Italian house’s name is on everyone’s lips. It’s about to be on their wrists and the inner curvature of their necks, too: Versace has just launched Yellow Diamond, its latest fragrance offering. Billed as a “celebration of exquisite, timeless beauty,” the citron, pear sorbet, bergamot, orange blossom, mimosa, and amber woods eau is an homage to the rare gem of the same name and is housed in a glass flacon with a faceted, canary-tinged topper accordingly. Abbey Lee Kershaw, platinum blond fringe and all, plays muse to Donatella Versace in the perfume’s Mario Testino-lensed ad campaign—and this behind-the-scenes footage of the making of the fragrance’s promotional video, which is now showing here. And you know what? Seeing Kershaw writhe around, swirling her cornsilk strands just so, does in fact make the scent that much more appealing.
