Thursday, October 03, 2013 Posted by Dina N

The new Lifetime Original Movie, House of Versace, premieres this Saturday, October 5th, at 8/7c. The film stars Gina Gershon, screen icon and Golden Globe-winner Raquel Welch, Enrico Colantoni and Colm Feore.

House of Versace will be chronicling Donatella Versace's inspiring triumph over tragedy by carrying on her brother's powerful legacy after his 1997 slaying. The movie is based on Wall Street Journal reporter Deborah Ball's widely-read book "House of Versace: The Untold Story of Genius, Murder, and Survival". It tells the story of Donatella (Gershon), who, following the brazen murder of her brother, world-renowned designer Gianni Versace (Colantoni) at the height of his success, is suddenly thrust into the spotlight as head designer of his fashion empire. At first ridiculed by critics worldwide, Donatella falls victim to drug addiction and nearly bankrupts the company. With the help of her family, including daughter Allegra, Aunt Lucia (Welch) and brother Santo (Feore), she enters rehab to confront her demons and soon comes back stronger than ever to re-ignite the beloved Versace brand with her own vision and builds one of the most powerful and influential fashion houses ever known.

Check out the movie trailer below.

    It looks pretty interesting. I still think of Maya Rudolph's impersonation of Donatella on SNL.
