The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story is based on Maureen Orth’s 1999 book Vulgar Favors. The 10-episode series is set to air next year.

The fashion world was stunned when Versace was gunned down aged 50 in front of his opulent beachside estate in July 1997.

The death was on the front pages constantly until it was eclipsed by the death of Versace’s friend and muse Princess Diana just a few weeks later.

Donatella had always worked closely with her brother – he even named a perfume, Blonde, in her honour.

After his death she stepped into his role at the label he founded, of which she owns 20per cent.

Filming for the biopic has taken place at the scene over the last few days, with actor Darren Criss spotted wielding a gun in character as spree killer Andrew Cunanan.
