Liftetime Presents "House of Versace" TV Movie!!!


Aye! Versace, Versace, Versace and we don't mean the Drake song either! We are talking about the real Versace, Donatella Versace to be exact. The fashion powerhouse recently linked up with Lifetime to bring "The House of Versace" movie to a television screen near you!


Money...drugs...murder...bankruptcy...fashion! This is the story of the Versace brand. Versace was founded in 1978 by Gianna Versace, but it wasn't until Elizabeth Hurley wore that banging black and gold safety pin dress in 1994 did the brand really take off. 



Since then you have seen the Versace brand on everyone from Biggie, Miley Cyrus, and of course Jennifer Lopez. Remember that iconic green dress with the plunging neckline Jennifer Lopez wore to the 2000 Grammys? That was definitely Versace


The movie is scheduled to be released on October 5th, 2013 and will tell the story of Donatella Versace being put in charge of the brand after the 1997 murder of her brother Gianna Versace (he was gunned down in front of his Miami mansion in a random act of violence by Andrew Cunanan), her extensive drug use, and almost losing the fashion power house to bankruptcy! 




So the big question is who will play the uber tanned and blonde Donatella? None other than actress Gina Gershon! Good casting...we can see the slight resemblance!



We can't wait to watch!
