If this just-released extended preview is any indication, we have reason to believe that the upcoming Lifetime original movie House of Versace may just be the most scandalous, incredible thing to hit the network since 2010′s The Pregnancy Pact.
In the minute-and-a-half clip, below, we see an eerily convincing (albeit mildly more decipherable) Gina Gershon playing the part of fashion’s platinum-tressed queen b, set to a soundtrack of Kanye West’s Hedi Slimane-dig “I Am a God” (guess the real Versace had Drake on lock?). The movie, premiering October 5, appears to cover every aspect of the Versace label’s history: From Donatella’s upbringing to Gianni’s death, to the rampant drug-use and the house’s money troubles.
And the preview itself is quite a treat. “It’s Versace, ladies…” ‘Donatella’ sneers to some women giving her the stink eye on the street. “Why don’t you go by the store, your husbands will be happy.” BURN. Later, she faints dramatically (how else?) in the middle of a fashion party, presumably after learning the news of her brother’s murder. Another time, she snaps, “Did I stutter??” while making some bizarro lazy-eye face that we can only presume was purposeful and therefore a testament to Gershon’s supreme acting abilities. And then, “I was always crazy… even before the drugs!”
Wonder whose design Gershon will be wearing to next year’s Emmy Awards hmmmm?
