THE Rodeo Drive Walk of Style tribute to Donatella Versace, held next to the Beverly Hills City Hall Feb. 8, felt like a Friars roast. 1. Eva Longoria, right, and Penelope Cruz loved the video of "SNL's" Maya Rudolph as the diminutive design dominatrix. 2. Sharon Stone, right, mocked Donatella's husky voice to auction off a Versace Lamborghini for Elton John's AIDS Foundation: "This car is so sexy. It's the Viagra of the future." 3.

DONATELLA VERSACE blew into town with her entourage last weekend and set up camp in a smoking-allowed bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel. The Pink Palace's high-profile clientele being what it is, it's unlikely that she is the only regular guest who can claim a "Saturday Night Live" doppelganger.

With a hairstylist on guard with a brush and a makeup artist standing sentinel with a powder puff, fashion diva Donatella Versace thrusts her left hip toward the camera. "My best side," she says in a smoky voice, hooking her thumbs on the waistband of a pair of pants just a shade more tangerine than her tan. Posing in front of a bougainvillea bush outside her bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel, the designer is commanding every click of this photo shoot.

In that old comedy routine, the American tourist in a foreign country tries speaking English to a local and isn't understood. So the traveler keeps repeating his question, but louder. And louder. His subject isn't stupid or deaf. He just speaks another language. As the spring 2001 designer collections finished here, it's clear that now the Italians are the ones shouting, hoping that we stupid customers will finally get it.
