It has been more than two decades since fashion designer, Gianni Versace, was gunned down by serial killer, Andrew Cunanan, on the doorstep of his Miami Beach home in Florida.

To mark the 21st anniversary of his tragic and untimely death, Robb Report has compiled a series of images showcasing Versace’s iconic designs and the fashion designer’s close relationship with some of the world’s first (and some would say last) real supermodels.
