Donatella Versace stuck in elevator moments before being named LGBT global ambassador [WATCH]

Recommended Posts




Donatella Versace's recent trip to an Los Angeles LGBT Center event took an unexpected turn when she got stuck in an elevator!


The fashion icon wasn’t alone in her metallic prison. Several reports say the elevator was packed, including her assistant, publicist, security guard, and some key figures from Versace PR. They were all reportedly held captive for 10 to 15 minutes before being freed by the fire department and at least four firefighters.


Thankfully, there were no injuries, and Donatella even managed to find humor in the situation.  Footage captured by TMZ shows her emerging from the elevator, a little disoriented, but exclaiming, “Ladies first… oh my god!”  as she squeezed through the gap.



Later, during her speech at the event, where she was named the LA LGBT Center’s first global ambassador, she addressed the achievement as “emotional,” but also joked that it was because she was “stuck in a lift” and assumed she’d never make it.


 “I thought I was never going to make it to this roof, but I did,” she said.


The event was co-hosted by Versace and former NBA star Dwyane Wade, whose daughter Zaya is transgender. Wade emphasized their support for their daughter and the community, stating, “We stand with our daughter. We stand with our community. We speak loud. We speak proud.”
