THE UNINVITED, PART TWO: Suzy Menkes says she bears no grudge. The journalist was barred from covering Donatella Versace’s inaugural collection on Thursday because of an article she wrote after Gianni Versace’s death.
But Friday, Menkes said she understood. “I was personally disappointed not to be able to see this show because I’d followed Gianni Versace’s career from the outset, and I would have liked to have been able to tell the International Herald Tribune reader what happened on Thursday,” she said. “But I respect the right of Donatella and Santo Versace to invite whomever they choose — and I wish them well.”
