The First Versace ‘American Crime Story’ Trailer is Here

 

“Murder but make it fashion” might as well be the tagline for the upcoming season of American Crime Story. After an award-winning first season that focused on OJ Simpson, Ryan Murphy Series #451 has moved to South Florida for The Assassination of Gianni Versace – and judging by the new trailer, we’re in for quite a glamorous murder story.

Murphy will focus on the murder of the legendary designer by serial killer Andrew Cunanan, who took out four other people before Versace, and committed suicide eight days later. It’s a shocking story and yeah, we’re here for it; but let’s talk about how glorious the cast is for a second.

Penelope Cruz and Edgar Ramirez look flawless as Donatella and Gianni, respectively; and Ricky Martin looks very Ricky Martin as Gianni’s lover Antonio D’Amico. Then there’s Darren Criss a long, long way from Glee Club as the murderous Cunanan. Somehow, even as he’s murdering people, he looks high fashion.

The new season starts on January 17th. And if you’re one of the ten people who didn’t watch the first season, you’ve got a great excuse to binge it and ignore your family this holiday season.
