There's been all kinds of hubbub over critic's reviews of designer collections (need we remind you about Cathy Horyn and Oscar de la Renta's hotdog vs hamburger feud?); but don't expect a bad review to ruffle Donatella Versace's feathers.

In a recent interview with style blogger Susie Lau of Style Bubble, Versace said, "any reaction is a good thing. The people who struggle are those who have no reaction at all. They are too safe. Tacky — never mind. What is tacky? What is chic?"

In the same interview, Versace also disclosed that she's quite the avid online shopper! "I do shop online myself. Fortunately I live very well so [laughs] I think its kind of a addictive."

Donatella Versace: girl after our own hearts.
