Gina Gershon has a wide, downturned mouth that can express disdain, arrogance and sexual mischief. She is never, ever boring.
Put her in a cascading wig of long blonde hair, get her to lower her voice to sound like an Italian-accented bassoon, and you have Donatella Versace.
Gershon plays the fashion legend, who survived the murder of her brother, Gianni, and a visit to rehab, in the Lifetime movie House of Versace, premiering Saturday, Oct. 5, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
