Donatella Versace joins Instagram with the help of Gigi Hadid

Donatella Versace may be a bit behind with creating an Instagram account, but the fashion designer has certainly joined the social networking site in style – and with the help of a certain A-list model pal.

The Versace legend kicked off proceedings with a picture of her and Gigi Hadid striking a pose at the top of a snowcapped mountain.

As one of fashion's heavyweights, Donatella lives a pretty interesting life – we can't wait to see more!
