Donatella's face is beginning to crack, but is the sun or cosmetic surgery to blame?
(dailymail.co.uk) - No matter how blonde your hair or trim your figure, time eventually has its way.
As Donatella Versace appears to be finding out.
At 52, and head of the iconic Italian fashion house that bears her family name, she could be a picture of low-key groomed glamour.
Instead, she has clung to a long platinum hairstyle, deep tan and the revealing clothes her brand is famous for. No doubt she is equally attached to her plastic surgeon.
The result is a woman who suddenly, despite her vast fortune to spend on her looks, seems to be showing her years. And more.
Despite having had cosmetic procedures to stave off the signs of ageing, skin experts say the mother of two's love of sunbathing could be her undoing.
Deep wrinkles have appeared on the bridge of her nose, which they believe could be due to excessive sun damage or simply botched surgery.
And her full lips, widely attributed to earlier cosmetic work, seem even more swollen than usual with deep lines around the mouth.
Apostolis Gaitanis, a Harley Street plastic surgeon, said: "This scar tissue on her nose could be due to sunburn as we know she likes the sun a lot. It could also be the result of rhinoplasty that went wrong. This is a definite scar though.
"I am sure that in the past she has had a face-lift but in this case the face has relaxed again."
Miss Versace, a former cocaine addict, took over Versace after her brother Gianni was murdered in 1997.
