House of Versace

Lifetime Television recently aired the movie, House of Versace.  At first, I could not decide if I really wanted to watch it.  I usually like my entertainment mindless and incredibly light - life is stressful enough without watching sad stressful movies and television shows in my opinion!  I thought this would be a hard movie to watch because I of course remember when Gianni Versace was tragically and senselessly murdered and I remember reading about how hard a time Donatella had dealing with such a horrible loss.  You see where I'm going with this, right?  I totally expected a Greek tragedy (of the Italian variety, of course) that would leave curled up in a ball in the corner somewhere!  I know, I can be a bit melodramatic...

I am so glad that I watched it anyway!  House of Versace was a great movie!  The cast and crew did an amazing job of portraying the great love this family had for each other and the passion they had for creating beautiful clothes and accessories.  Gina Gershon, who played Donatella, completely transformed into her.  I think it was an excellent portrayal of the fashion icon.

This is definitely a movie I have to have in my DVD collection when they release it.  If you missed it, you absolutely have to catch a rebroadcast whether you're a fashionista or not.
