According to one friend of the late designer, “Gianni was always on the prowl for new boys,” who he often offered to make models, dazzled with lavish presents or impressed with his endless supply of expensive cars and clothing. “Many just partied and then faded away.”

Versace was widely known to partake in party favors, including copious amounts of cocaine, which he liked to get from sketchy dealers since he “got a thrill out of” scoring the drug, said an insider.

Not surprisingly, Versace’s sex parties were infamous among Versace’s band of friends. “He was noted for his cocaine and sex parties,” a fan of the bacchanals once revealed.

Versace always treated his hard-partying groupies. “There would be Dom Perignon champagne, pounds of Beluga caviar flown in from Petrossian in New York, pate de foie gras and truffles jetted in from France,” a friend of Versace once noted.

Sadly, Versace’s wild ways came to an abrupt stop after Cunanan gunned him down on the morning of July 15, 1997, in front of his Miami mansion, the scene of so many of the designer’s wildest nights.
