"I saw it in Italian Vogue. I just asked Donatella [Versace] if I could wear it for an evening. It's extremely glamorous. It's probably going to be in a museum tomorrow."

wife/supermodel Lisa Fonssagrives, whose signature extended eyeliner

Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir on the top lashes and one coat of CHANEL
Inimitable Intense Mascara in Purple on the bottom lashes.
