Donatella Versace Not Pleased with Lifetime’s ‘House of Versace’
Donatella Versace isn’t too thrilled about Lifetime’s original movie “House of Versace,” slated to make its debut on Saturday. The company said, “Versace has neither authorized nor had any involvement whatsoever in the forthcoming TV movie about Mrs. Versace.” The house takes issue with the inspiration for the film, the 2010 book by Deborah Ball, “House of Versace: The Untold Story of Genius, Murder and Survival.” “Since Versace did not authorize the book on which it is based, the movie should only be seen as a work of fiction,” the fashion house said. The book centers on the struggles and the challenges faced by the designer after the murder of her brother Gianni Versace in 1997. Gina Gershon plays the role of Donatella Versace in the movie.
Paris Celebrates Breast Cancer Awareness
To help kick off the Estée Lauder Cos. Inc.’s annual Breast Cancer Awareness campaign, on Monday evening the company lit pink the Conciergerie. This is the former royal palace and prison on Île de la Cité in central Paris where Marie Antoinette was jailed. They also projected silhouettes of the iconic pink ribbons onto the building. Guests gathered before and after the lighting ceremony under the building’s Gothic arches in a vast room where 40 photographs of people impacted by breast cancer were displayed. They were contenders for the company’s Pink Ribbon Photo Award, which was in its second edition. A prize-giving ceremony occurred that evening as well.
