Over the years, Donatella Versace has become a PSA on what not to do when it comes to plastic surgery.

Donatella has never been outspoken about her rumored cosmetic procedures, but she did open up about her beauty routine in 2013.
"I’m not like this genetically,” she said at the Vogue Festival. “I use tons of cream and take care of my hair and skin.” She went on to admit to Botox, but “only on my face."
She added, “I stopped working with a personal trainer as he wouldn’t let me smoke."

Next year, Penélope Cruz will star alongside Édgar Ramírez as Donatella and her late brother Gianni Versace in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.

Wearing a blonde wig, Penélope is almost a mirror image of Donatella from the late '90s. Fans blew up Twitter after photos of Penélope on set surfaced, and many could not get over the uncanny resemblance.
