    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.

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