The designer's close confidant and runway muse marked the 24th anniversary of his murder by sharing a photo of her little girl dressed in a Versace-print onesie. "I love you Gianni Versace," Naomi captioned the tender moment posted to Instagram on July 15.
She also shared a video montage highlighting their memories, writing, "I MISS YOU GIANNI VERSACE, YOUR INTUITION AND ACTIONS AHEAD OF IT'S TIME. YOUR WORK ETHIC TO BE ADMIRED AND YOUR AUTHENTIC EMBRACE GENEROSITY AND BEAUTIFUL HEART ADORED."
Naomi has yet to announce her daughter's name and seldom shares photos of the baby on social media. She has, however, described feeling "honoured to have this gentle soul in my life" and excitement for the "lifelong bond" they now share.
The Italian fashion mastermind's life was cut short in 1997 when he was gunned down outside his Miami Beach mansion by serial killer Andrew Cunanan.
Younger sister Donatella Versace assumed control of the luxury brand in the aftermath of Gianni's death and remains its Chief Creative Officer.
Versace's Spring 2018 collection was designed as a tribute to Gianni. Donatella told Vogue at the time that it took two decades because it was "too painful to think about it before. Twenty years went by and I was ready."
She marked yesterday's somber milestone with an Instagram tribute that read, "We always made each other smile. Gianni, I miss you every day."
