    If you're anything like us, you've been plotzing over every little glimpse of House of Versace, premiering on Lifetime this Saturday. From the looks of the previews, Gina Gershon absolutely nails her role as Donatella Versace, from the smoky voice right down to the cheekbones. "It's really a family drama," the actress says of the true story, which covers the rise and fall — and rebirth — of the fashion house. "It was interesting enough that I would have done it even if it weren’t Donatella."

    Fair enough, but it's safe to say that Gershon's own interest in style made her a shoo-in for the role. When she invited us to her home, she showed off an enviable and eclectic wardrobe — everything from a to-die-for Rick Owens jacket to a full dirndl getup — and let us in on a skin-care tip that we know you've never heard before.

    Ahead, a glimpse into this stylish (and, yes, gorgeous) woman's life — cute kitty pictures included.
