As for Versace, he told Barneys New York that he is still surprised that being authentic is opening up opportunities for him: “It’s unbelievable that I’m just being myself and people are blown away. I feel so accepted for who I am. So many opportunities are coming my way and I ask how, but maybe I’m just doing that little something extra that other people don’t do.”
