It was fashion mayhem at H&M stores across the world on Saturday as Donatella Versace's hotly-anticipated line for the budget retailer went on sale.

Even before the launch, the line snaked around the block outside the store's 5th Avenue flagship.

The first woman in line reportedly waited for 24 hours.

Versace is the latest high-end designer to collaborate with a mass retailer.

Even some celebrities couldn't wait to get their hands on the items.

"Something like this is so amazing because you give that every day person the opportunity to be able to wear Versace," Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson said.

H&M stores we called tell us most of the line had already sold out by Saturday afternoon.
