When we heard that there was a TV show in the works about the death of Gianni Versace, we knew it'd be a good one—and certainly a stylish one at that. The late Italian designer died in 1997 after a fatal shot outside his Miami home. The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, which will air on FX this January, begins with his death and then traces back the footsteps of his assassin and the motives behind the crime. In the meantime, we got a sneak peek at three of the incredible looks that the show will feature, thanks to Entertainment Weekly and a few paparazzi images.

Penelope Cruz is cast as Donatella Versace, now the chief designer of the eponymous brand. In a platinum blonde wig and stacks upon stacks of gold bangles and jewels, Cruz channels the signature Italian glam that Donatella is known for. Cruz serves up elaborate looks in two hot-pink dresses and one slick all-black look as her character descends from a plane. We can't wait until we get to see the rest of Cruz's looks from the show, that are sure to be as epic as these three. Needless to say, we'll be marking our calendars in 2018 for the show's debut.

Scroll down to see three of Penelope Cruz's looks in the forthcoming TV show.
