This vibrant, skintight cat suit exhibits Versace’s ability to incorporate works of art seamlessly into his designs while maintaining his artistic integrity, the presentation of women as sexy and vivacious. This print in particular, depicting two iconic American sex symbols—Marilyn Monroe and James Dean—demonstrates Versace’s admiration for the work of Andy Warhol.

(Marilyn Glass, Los Angeles, California); purchased by the Indianapolis Museum of Art in 2010.
