The Assassination of Gianni Versace — Teasers

FX has been running some attention-grabbing teasers for the upcoming second series of American Crime Story, which will focus on the murder of Gianni Versace.

Here are five of them, none longer than 30 seconds.

Édgar Ramírez as Gianni Versace, and Darren Criss as Andrew Cunanan. This gets points for creepiness, and for using the Versace palette of rich and saturated colours.

Penelope Cruz plays Donatella Versace. This scene is beautiful but unfortunate, because it inevitably reminds the viewer of Donatella’s well-known fondness for nose candy. At what should have been a tender moment, I couldn’t help but giggle.

Three more teasers:

The first series of American Crime Story, which was subtitled The People v. O.J. Simpson, was a critical and popular success for FX.

The second series, titled The Assassination of Gianni Versace, will première on 17 January 2018.

For my own wardrobe, such as it is, I’m strictly a Ralph Lauren traditionalist. Nobody ever claimed Versace’s clothes were exemplars of understated good taste, and I’d never wear them myself.

But sometimes, I wonder what it would be like to be young, rich, thin, stylish, and silly enough to wear Versace!

Well, not all of us can be successful coke dealers….
