The Assassination of Gianni Versace: Best Fashion Moments
The hit TV series The Assassination of Gianni Versace has been an explosion of visual opulence: colourful rococo prints, medusa heads, studded leather, and general onslaught of golden-accented nineties gaudiness.
For a crime series to be so deeply entrenched in the realm of fashion is rare, and impressive when one considers there was absolutely no involvement or assistance from the House of Versace, with Donatella stating that the show was a 'work of fiction'. Rather, costume designers Lou Eyrich and Alison Leach went about gathering vintage Versace from online re-sellers and meticulously re-creating Gianni's era-defining looks themselves.
The result? A wardrobe so extensive that it had to be stored in warehouses during filming, and so remarkable that we've rounded up our favourite looks below:
A brief moment of caution-to-the-wind, jaw-droppingly impressive dancing from Darren Chriss (who plays murderer Andrew Cunanan) while wearing an utterly ridiculous, patent red jumpsuit. Devo's 1980 hit ‘Whip It’ plays in the background, and is the finishing touch that renders this scene our favourite of a series which is, at times, difficult to watch.
