Why Penélope Cruz Was Destined to Play Donatella Versace
It was recently announced that Penélope Cruz will play Donatella Versace in the upcoming season of American Crime Story centered on the tragic death of Gianni Versace. Despite initial reports that Lady Gaga would play the late designer's beloved sister, this new casting announcement actually makes a lot of sense.
Why exactly? For over a decade now, Penélope has shown her love for the iconic Italian fashion brand at numerous red carpet appearances. She's worn Versace to the Academy Awards several times and was even wearing a gown from the brand to the Vanity Fair afterparty the year she won an award for Best Supporting Actress. So, while Lady Gaga has a closeness with Donatella, this decision is entirely random either.
