It's common for aspiring designers or stylists to jump from one unpaid internship to another for months on end, hoping to earn their big break. But we've yet to hear of anyone paying a company to be an intern. That is, until now: Versace is offering just that opportunity. Joy! Granted, it's part of a charity auction, but with a price tag of $3,200 for the privilege of folding clothes and making coffee, we're pretty sure things are getting way out of hand. [FWD]
