Megablonde Donatella Versace knows how to shop. Although the label she oversees has experienced serious financial hardship in the past year or two, that didn't keep the designer from shilling out $5,000 for sunglasses at NYC's Artsee.

An onlooker told the NY Post, "She walked around saying, 'Amore, this one, and this one, and this one,' picking up pairs of sunglasses. She must have bought eight pairs of one-off glasses costing from $500. Then, with a quick 'Ciao,' she was gone."

Hopefully the ease with which Donatella parts with her money means Versace's financial prospects are on the up and up.
