The iconic fashion house, helmed byDonatella Versace, paid tribute to brotherGianni Versace20 years after his murder, in part by calling on the ’90s supermodels whose careers he played a large role in elevating to close out the show in Milan on Friday.

They strutted down the runwayhand in handto George Michael’s “Freedom ’90,” as many of them did in 1991, giving fashion-lovers giant pangs of nostalgia in their wake.
You might rememberthat 1991 runwaywhen Campbell, Crawford, Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington walked together as one of the most iconic in Gianni Versace’s career ― and one of the most iconic moments in fashion to this day.
The Guardian reports that during a press conference ahead of the show, Donatella Versace, who usedprints from her brother’s collectionsto inspire this one, explained that she is “not sad,” adding, “I am happy that after 20 years I can finally do this with a smile on my face.”
Campbell, who has continued to frequent the runways to this day, told HuffPost in 2015 that the 1991 moment was something that would“never happen again,unless Donatella [Versace] says ‘I want you all back together again.’”
We’re so thrilled she did. Check out more photos from the major moment below.
