Italian designer Donatella Versace may be the head of a luxurious and very successful fashion label, but she has revealed that she struggles with low self-esteem and often believes she isn't good enough. Donatella comments that she regularly feels very insecure and works hard to not let it get to her, however she still often has moments of doubt: ''It's my self-esteem. I trained myself to hide my vulnerability and my insecurity for a long time. I give in to these two emotions only when I am alone. At the end of the day, I'm just kind of thinking, 'Is it good enough?' The next day I wake up and I'm like, 'Oh, yeah, that was fine.' But usually, in the evening, I have that half an hour that I think I did everything wrong.''

Donatella says she is even quite anti-social and likes to be alone, although she does not mind attending fashion shows and parties when she has to:  ''My private life, nobody believes me, is really - when I finish my work, working here, I'll go to a show or after-party, but when I get home from those things, I lock myself in the apartment and I don't want to hear anything. I'm the most antisocial person you can think about. Even if nobody believes me.''

Opening up on her typical day, the designer reveals that she has a "glam squad" who she works with on a daily basis - the team do her hair and makeup in the morning and then she gets to work:  ''I wake up very early in the morning - 6:30 to 7 - and do a little bit in the gym. Not because I love it but because I need to do it to keep my body healthy. And I have a light breakfast. I have a glam squad, who help me to do hair and makeup every morning. I don't look like this when I wake up, you know. I need a little help. And then I go to the office and talk to my assistants, go through all the mail. And then I go straight downstairs and just wander around.''
