Penelope Cruz was spotted wearing a blonde wig and a leather jacket as she geared up to portray fashion icon Donatella Versace in the upcoming anthology TV series The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.

Cruz, 43, completed her look with sunglasses as she was strolling on the set on Monday, reported Daily Mail.

The film crew tried to keep Cruz hidden, leading to an undignified entrance through the dumpsters at the service entrance to the legendary Versace mansion, where filming of the Gianni Versace biopic is taking place.

She added light pink lipstick and heavy make-up to transform into the Italian fashion designer.

The series 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 Gianni was gunned down aged 50 in front of his beach side estate in July 1997. Actor Edgar Ramirez will play the role of Gianni in the series.
