The infamous Miami mansion where Gianni Versace was murdered in 1997 will go under the hammer at a bankruptcy auction on September 17, following this year’s $50 million price cut. The lavish 23,000-square-foot home, known as Casa Casuarina, had originally been put on for $125 million (making it the most expensive home on the market), but despite slashing the price to $75 million, the owners still couldn’t find a buyer. The estate, originally built in 1930, boasts ten bedrooms, ornate decor, and a 54-foot long mosaic pool with 24-karat gold ornamentation.
Come Spring 2014, Donna Karan won’t just be tempting you with her wares, but also a glamorous city getaway in Bridgehampton. Karan and her daughter Gabby have invested in a multimillion-dollar hotel called The Enclave Inn and plan to give it a modern makeover in the same signature style that put the designer on the map.
Beer heiress (yes, that’s what she is for a living) Daphne Guinness is selling her art-filled apartment on Fifth Avenue, and she’s listed it for a whopping $14 million.

Remember that time Lady Gaga took Anderson Cooper back to her Lower East Side apartment and the current tenant wouldn’t let her in, and all of America was just devastated, devastated that we couldn’t see the New York cubicle that made Stefani Germanotta into the Mother Monster she is today? Well, now it’s for rent.
J.Crew creative director Jenna Lyons is selling her house in Brooklyn, and as befits the sale of any multi-million dollar piece of property, there are really, really, really awesome pictures of the house online.
Manhattan real estate has been known to drive people mad, as the search for that elusive perfect apartment can take a lifetime. It helps when you have plenty of cash to spare, but even then it’s a horribly miserable process. Take Isaac Mizrahi. The super-successful designer found his dream home years ago, but was only able to snatch it up this fall.
If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to walk a day in Nina Garcia’s shoes, well, we can’t really help you. We can, however, show you where Marie Claire’s most famous fashion director lays her head to sleep at night. Don’t worry, we’re not creepy stalkers, it’s just that her $8.5 million pad on Manhattan’s Upper East Side is currently on the market. Let’s take a look!
The rent Lady Gaga pays on her six-bedroom mansion in Los Angeles makes what we pay for our junior one bedroom in New York look downright reasonable. Pictures of where our favorite little monster sleeps after the jump.
Last we heard Zac Posen was drawing inspiration from lesbian proms, so we’ve got to admit we’re curious about what “thing that is actually happening,” is behind his latest endeavor.
