Rose McGowan wrote about her iconic Interview shoot with Donatella Versace, Lil Kim, and Missy Elliott on her Instagram page.
"Reality check. We look fabulous, donít we? Hereís the truth of it. There was no joy. This was truly one of the more miserable days of my life, but I had really pretty hair. 😉 Lil Kim was nice & I loved her energy. She was cool & fun. Donatella made it super miserable though. Truly an unpleasant lady although in order to keep borrowing Versace Iím sure others will disagree. Lol. Still an iconic photo though."
At a previous date, she had this to say about the shoot:
This was one of the more surreal days of my life in my surreal life. David was shooting Donatella, Missy, and Lil Kim for the Best Friends issue of Interview Magazine. I stopped by to say hello to David and introduce him to my sister who was visiting from a small town.
I was immediately asked to join the shoot. I kept telling Ingrid Sischy that I couldn't be in the shoot because I wasn't really their friend and it was the Best Friend issue. For some reason I was really hung up on that honesty thing.
Next thing I'm in a chair and my long hair is being curled by Orlando Pita who was a very renowned hairdresser. I'm pretty sure Donatella wasn't happy I was there because every dress I tried on she would have removed from me and put on her.
I stupidly asked Missy Elliott if her jewelry was real cause they were so big and beautiful. She got really offended and didn't speak to me for the rest of the shoot. I didn't realize my question maybe translated to "I don't think you can afford this" cause the reality was I didn't know anyone that could've afforded it in real life. My earrings at the time were cubic zirconia.
Lil Kim was rad and ran around totally naked which was great except for when it was time for her to get her wig changed she made everyone leave the room.
I was quite shy and it was stressful. Not a best friend's vibe at all. The vibe was so intense and not in a good way. Mostly cause Donatella was upset and clearly didn't want me there. Every time I tried to leave Ingrid the editor said "Rose, we've put you on the cover twice. You owe us" So I stayed and took part in the tiny mystery of how Rose McGowan ended up in this picture."
