Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery but Donatella Versace is not impressed. The Versace brand released a statement this morning saying it has “neither authorized nor had any involvement whatsoever in the forthcoming TV movie about Mrs. Versace,” referring to the Lifetime original House of Versace starring Gina Gershon. “Since Versace did not authorize the book on which it is based, the movie should only be seen as a work of fiction.” [WWD]

Step up your shoe game with a lesson in art history. Paris’ Palais de Tokyo will pay homage to chaussure connoisseur Roger Vivier in an exhibit called Virgulea nod to the signature, curved heel he created. The showcase will feature 170 pairs of his namesake shoes and are grouped by curator Olivier Saillard according to art movements (like Post-Impressionism and Egyptian antiques). [The Daily Beast]

A clothing line isn’t the only thing to bear Michael Kors’ name. The billionaire designer donated $5 million toward the expansion of God’s Love We Deliver, an organization that delivers meals to New Yorkers in need. In return, the New York-based service will name a newly-renovated SoHo operation center in his honor. [Fashionista]
