Thanks to This Amazing New Trailer, We're Warming Up to Gina Gershon as Donatella Versace

by Abby Schreiber

When it comes to Donatella Versace impersonations, we'll forever be loyal to Maya Rudolph (she did appear on our cover in character after all) but...after seeing the new, longer trailer for Lifetime's House of Versace, we gotta say, Gina Gershon appare fantastico. Like the teaser, the whole clip is set to Kanye's Yeezus track "I Am A God" and is basically one amazingly bitchy sound bite after another with Gershon-as-Donatella saying lines like "I was a girl in power since the day I was born",  "I am Versace!", and "I was always crazy even before the drugs." The requisite shots of sex-and-blow make brief appearances as does an amazing-looking Enrico Colantoni (Just Shoot Me, Veronica Mars) as Donatella's late brother and Versace founder, Gianni Versace. Raquel Welch also makes an appearance as Donatella's aunt, Lucia. Watch the clip above and DVR that shit this Saturday (October 5) at 8pm.

Ti amo, Donatella.
