The first official photo of Penélope Cruz as fashion designer Donatella Versace in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story has been revealed!

The plot of the miniseries will follow the murder of Donatella's brother, Gianni back in 1997, that left her in charge of the Italian fashion house. According to Entertainment Weekly, this photo was taken at Villa Casa Casuarina, the actual Miami Beach mansion where Gianni lived and was murdered in. It's also where some scenes were filmed at.

The series will be executively produced by Ryan Murphy and also star Darren Criss as murderer Andrew Cunanan and Edgar Ramirez as Gianni Versace.

Several gossip sites have also snapped behind-the-scenes looks at Penélope as Donatella and the resemblance between the two will have you doing double-takes.

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story is slated to air in 2018.
