Add to Watchlist

Gianni Versace was the flamboyant couturier who founded the Versace brand. When he was shot down by a serial murderer in 1997, Gianni's brother Santo and sister Donatella stepped up to the plate: Santo took over the business end of the company, and Donatella became reponsible for carrying on its fashion legacy. The House of Versace is a made-for-TV movie, produced by Lifetime Network, that tells the story of the family's struggle to keep the Versace brand alive.

At the center of The House of Versace is Donatella (Gina Gershon). Beautiful, gifted, with a shiny metallic surface that masks her inner vulnerability, Donatella has to learn pretty quickly to negotiate not only the highly convoluted world of haute couture but also her own self-doubts. As the Versace company takes a financial nose-dive after Gianni's death, she too collapses briefly into the arms of drugs and substance abuse. But with the powerful assistance of a strong Italian family (Raquel Welch gives a lively performance as Aunt Lucia), Donatella regains her footing and regroups her creative forces to lead Versace to its present lofty position in the fashion world.

  • Gina Gershon and Raquel Welch stars in this Lifetime Original Movie chronicling Donatella Versace's (Gershon) inspiring triumph over tragedy. Based on Wall Street Journal reporter Deborah Ball's widely-read book, the movie brings to light the story of Donatella, who, following the brazen murder of her brother, world-renowned designer Gianni Versace (Enrico Colantoni) at the height of his success, is suddenly thrust into the spotlight as head designer of his fashion empire. At first ridiculed by critics worldwide, Donatella falls victim to drug addiction and nearly bankrupts the company. With the help of her family, including daughter Allegra, Aunt Lucia (Welch) and brother Santo (Colm Feore), she enters rehab to confront her demons and soon comes back stronger than ever to re-ignite the beloved Versace brand with her own vision and builds one of the most powerful and influential fashion houses ever known.
