gina gershon donatella versace house of versace lifetime Gina Gershon as Donatella Versace: See the first photo from Lifetime's 'House of Versace'Fans of Lifetime’s wacky original movies, steel yourselves. Based on this first photo, “House of Versace” is going to be one for the ages.

Announced in August, “House of Versace” tells the story of Donatella Versace picking up the pieces of her brother Gianni‘s fashion house after his brutal murder and turning it into the legendary line it is today.

“Showgirls” star Gina Gershon (who knows a thing about Versace and camp from that, err, classic film) stars as Donatella, and we finally have the first look at the actress as the infamous Italian designer.

While it’s no Maya Rudolph in “SNL” (Seriously, if you’ve never seen Rudolph’s impression of Versace, drop everything and go here now), it appears as though Gershon will do just fine.

Gershon is joined in “House of Versace” by Enrico Colantoni (“Veronica Mars”) as Gianni and the legendary Raquel Welch as Donatella’s Aunt Lucia.

“House of Versace” premieres Sunday, Oct. 5 at 8 p.m. ET on Lifetime.

What do you think of Gershon as Versace?
