While the show's first season knocked it out of the park with its exploration of the O.J. Simpson trial, Murphy decided to go in a different direction with the impending second installment by tackling the gross injustices of Hurricane Katrina.

Zayn Malik is partnering up with Versace for a collaboration.

Move over, Gigi Hadid and Tommy Hilfiger, Zayn Malik is partnering up with Donatella Versace!

It was officially announced Wednesday that the former One Direction member will be designing a capsule collection of men's and women's clothing for Versus, Versace's diffusion line for younger buyers previously helmed by current Yves Saint Laurent designer Anthony Vaccarello.

Yay for Zayn!

Not yay for Vogue magazine who sat down to interview him about the collaboration during London Fashion Week only to have the 23-year-old bail with girlfriend Gigi and leave Donatella to do the interview by herself.

Bad form, Z!

But his indifferent rock-star attitude is just what the doctor ordered for the young, hip, and sexy brand, we guess, as reports indicate Donatella seemed completely unfazed by his actions. Cool.

The 61-year-old recalled meeting the Pillow Talk singer when he was still with his former band, of which she was never a fan:

"NO!.. [laughs]..no [I was never a One Direction fan]!… But I love Kate Moss, she forced me! She liked One Direction, I don't know why!… And Zayn really stood out for me because he was the one who talked the least and did not put so much emphasis on himself. And that is what I liked about him."

LOLz! Tell us how you really feel, girl!

She also articulated why she's so keen on working with him now:

Donatella Versace Unveils Unreleased Prince Music During Recent Runway Show! Get Your Ears On This!

| Filed under: Music MinuteFashion SmashionR.I.P.PrinceDonatella VersaceFashion WeekVersace

Listen to a previously-unheard Prince track here.

Prince may be gone but his music lives on.

On Saturday, Donatella Versace unveiled unreleased music by The Artist during her Milan Fashion Week show. The designer played an 11-minute mix during the Versace Men's Spring Summer 2017 runway, featuring a new song by the late legend.

Apparently, the fashionista and the icon were good friends, and he used to send her music quite a bit before his untimely passing.

Now, we aren't sure if the singer's estate gave Miz Versace permission to use the previously-unheard track.

However, if the songsmith gifted it to her, it's possible the 61-year-old didn't actually need approval to play the music after all.

Ch-ch-check it out — at 5:30 — in the video (below):

Versace Campaign Starring Gigi Hadid & Karlie Kloss Under Fire For Racism & For Promoting Teen Pregnancy

| Filed under: Fashion SmashionDonatella VersaceAd CampaignsVersaceKarlie KlossGigi HadidControversy

Versace campaign called out for promoting teen pregnancy.

We had the same thought when we first wrote about this campaign!

Weeks after the photos were released, an accompanying video has also hit the web, featuring Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss, and several other models in Chicago.

The clip has reignited the debate that Gigi and Karlie, at 21 and 23, respectively, are too young to have families and children who look old enough to attend kindergarten.

Some have even called the campaign "Teen Mom: Versace Edition." Ouch.

But Donatella Versace has heard the criticism and hit back in defense of it, saying:

"My name is Versace—I don't know how to do things quietly. That is just my blood and my family. We make a noise, shout loud, never hold back on our opinions. This is why our campaigns have always been so bold, because my family has always provoked. Life would be so boring if we all did the same thing."

She also defended Gigi and Karlie but made no mention of their ages in regards to the children they're supposed to be mothering in the ads:
