The House of Versace, a film that follows the rise, fall, and rise again of the Italian brand airs on Lifetime this Saturday, October 5 at 8 p.m., and it's exactly what you'd expect from such a movie. We couldn't be more excited.
When you think of the luxury and opulence of Versace, the first thing that comes into your mind probably isn't a made-for-television Lifetime movie, but the real life drama that has circulated around the label couldn't have been better scripted than for a dramatic re-enactment. Donatella Versace is portrayed as the flagrantly ridiculous person we assume she is in person, and there are plenty of scenes that demonstrate her over-the-top attitude, highlighted through excessive drug use, extreme diva behavior, and other reasons why we want to be friends with her.
Some choice quotes of hers from the trailer include:
"It's Versace, ladies. Why don't you go by the store? Your husbands will be happy."
"Did I stutter?"
"If you want to put me on a leash, it better be diamond-studded or you can kiss my..."
"I was always crazy even before the drugs."
All this while words like "SEX," "POWER," and "EMPIRE" splash across the screen while Kanye West's very appropros "I Am a God" plays.
Watch the trailer above, break out for your Versace for H&M jackets, and get ready for this weekend. It's going to be very opulent.
