Alert the fashion authorities — Ryan Murphy has finally found his Donatella Versace!

Fans were upset to learn earlier this year that Lady GaGa would not be playing the fashion icon in the third season of FX's American Crime Story, despite being kinda the perfect casting choice.

But now all is forgiven, as Murphy traded in the American stunt casting for a European acting treasure — by which we mean Oscar winning actress Penelope Cruz!

According to reports, the Vicky Cristina Barcelona star is set to play the lead role in Versace: American Crime Story!

The third installment of the crime anthology series will explore the murder of Gianni Versace (Edgar Ramirez), who was killed on the steps of his home in Miami Beach by serial killer Andrew Cunanan (Darren Criss).

Cunanan slayed five people that year before killing himself on a houseboat eight days after murdering Versace.

And based on her past roles, we have a feeling Cruz will totally slay this role. Tell us, Perezcious Readers, do YOU think the Spanish beauty will do a better job than GaGa would have?

Lea Michele Goes Back To High School With An Adorable Throwback To Glee's Premiere 7 Years Ago!

no title

How has it been seven years already?!

When Glee first premiered back on May 19, 2009, no one would have believed practically the entire cast would turn out to be household names.

While the Ryan Murphy series has suffered its fair share of tragedy since it debuted seven years ago, superstar Lea Michele took a moment to remember the good 'ole days in a heartwarming Instagram post on Thursday!

Apparently, Miss Rachel Berry stumbled upon a black and white photo featuring a dozen members of New Directions — sorry Matthew Morrison and Jayma Mays, kids only — and simply had to celebrate the show's anniversary with Gleeks everywhere!

Lea's caption for the photo is especially touching as she indirectly references Cory Monteith's death and Mark Salling's problems with child porn, but we're glad she still has positive memories of her time in Lima.

Never stop believin'!
