The fashion designer appears on film accompanied by two young and toned topless men, who proceed to pour two buckets of freezing water over her head.

“I am not just here to ruin my make-up; please donate to ALS,” she says, before screaming and running off camera.

Versace nominated Pharrell Williams, Prince and Pedro Almodovar to take on the challenge next.

The challenge raises money and awareness for the neuro-degenerative disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig's disease.

Those involved can either choose to have a bucket of ice and water dumped over their heads within 24 hours of them being nominated, as well as donating $10, or write out a cheque of $100 to an ALS charity of choice.

Numerous high-profile names have taken part, including Oprah, Justin Bieber, George W Bush, Anna Wintour, Victoria, David and Brooklyn Beckham, Piers Morgan, Russell Brand and Will Smith.


The challenge has so far raised over $88 million (£53 million) for charity.
