Donatella Versace obviously has a sense of humor about herself. After giving Maya Rudolph’s skits on “Saturday Night Live” her stamp of approval two years ago, the Italian designer took to her Facebook page to post her reaction to Italian comedian Virginia Raffaele’s sketch on Thursday evening at the Sanremo Music Festival.
“Virginia, will you come and be my body double? I am always so full of appointments, you could help me! But where were my boys?” wrote Versace, posting a photo of herself surrounded by a group of young male models.

The designer apparently didn’t mind Raffaele’s impersonation — jabs at plastic surgery and the designer’s smoking included. The comedian certainly nailed the attire — tight black pants and top, cinched waist, and high heels — although she sported a longer version of Versace’s current signature blonde do.
