Gina Gershon as Donatella Versace: PHOTO


Here's the first image of Gina Gershon as Donatella Versace, from a new Lifetime movie, via the HuffPost:

The TV movie was written by Rama Stagner and directed by Sara Sugarman and is based on Deborah Hall's book "House of Versace: The Untold Story of Genius, Murder and Survival."

Look for the film to follow Donatella as she struggles at her brother's company following his death.


  1. Jack says

    Gershon is much too beautiful to portray Donatella, who ruined her face with plastic surgery and tanning (leathery skin).

  2. Bart says

    I agree with Jack. Donatella is lucky she has an actress of Gershon’s ability playing her. I hope she knocks it out of the park.

  3. Joseph L says

    I am sure that is how Donatella *wants* to look. Instead of like a…oh how did they put it on Ab Fab? … a dried-up old kipper.

  4. Gregoire says

    Too beautiful to play such a hag, but talented enough for me to believe she will rock the part.

  5. James in Hollywood says

    Donatella has to be thrilled with the choice of Gina Gershon to play her. The woman is quite beautiful and seriously talented. (Gershon, that is.)

  6. Jack Ford says

    Wow, I see where they were going and I think they did a great job of capturing the look but obviously Gina is gorgeous and Donatella… not so much. Maybe this was how Donatella looked when she was 25? Also, Gina is only 7 years younger. Can you believe she’s 51 already??

  7. Quicksilver says

    As seductively androgynous as Gina Gershon is, she’s still a trillion percent more attractive than that butterface Manatella Versace.

    Awesome! Two Showgirls actresses making the news on the same day! Long live Nomi Malone and Chrystal Connors! I am a huge fan of Showgirls and love both Berkley and Gershon immensely! Can’t wait to see Berkeley rock it on DWTS and Gershon nail this role in this new telepicture!

  9. Jack M says

    It would be pretty awful to make her look like Donatella. You’d have to explode a truck tire up against her face, and that would be going a little to far.
