Versace is taking a step toward body inclusivity with the help of three plus-size models. 

Precious Lee, Jill Kortleve and Alva Claire stunned on the catwalk at Milan Fashion Week wearing Versace’s 2021 spring/summer collection. The new selection had an aquatic theme inspired by nature, which meant Lee, Kortleve and Claire were decked out in vibrant dresses with bold prints and colorful crop tops.
