Placing Stickers Over The Truth

From "Mondo Donatella", by Lauren Collins, featured in Profiles, New Yorker, Sept. 24, 2007 (about Donatella Versace)

"Donatella repaired to the outdoor terrace to smoke. Seated at a wrought-iron table, she thumbed open a pack of "special DV Marlboro Reds," (so called because her staff in Milan is instructed to cover the customary "Smoking Kills" label on every pack with a sticker bearing a DV monogram in medieval script.)" pg. 152.
