Simply the Best: Tina Turner’s Iconic Versace Dress is Now an NFT

The iconic sparkling Versace dress worn by rock ‘n’ roll legend, Tina Turner, will be immortalised as a non-fungible token as part of a public NFT art sale hosted in Miami this week.

Worn on tour in the 90s, the sparkling Versace dress is being digitised thanks to Turner’s former stylist, Wayne Scot Lukas.

While the late Donatella Versace took credit for designing the iconic dress, Wayne Scot Lukas told Page Six that Tina hated Versace and that he was in fact the one to design the garment and convince Turner to wear it. Lukas also told Page Six that the dress needed a police escort to get to the venue.

In an interview with Vogue, Donatella described that when Turner first saw the lingerie-style minidress made from crystal mesh she simply said, “shorter”.

“As she put the dress on and looked at herself in the mirror, there was a sudden change in her attitude. The lioness came out. Tina really understands and is able to harness the power of clothes. Backstage, before the performance, she danced with Gianni. It was magical, I will never forget that moment. On stage, her energy was incredible!” Donatella reportedly said.

Along with the Swarovski crystal covered two-piece garment the buyer of Turner’s outfit will receive an NFT and digital certificate of authenticity.

111 photos of model Kara Young wearing the dress is also up for auction via ViciNFT at approximately A$2,800 a pop from December 1. A portion of the money made from the sale is to go to Action Against Hunger and Christy Turlington Burns’ Every Mother Counts charity.
