In March, the actress was confirmed to play the crime wife in the third installment of American Crime Story, but now we've finally gotten our first sneak peek of the show. Cruz was spotted in Miami, dressed from head to toe in Versace's sister's usual garb:  an all black turtleneck blouse, leather pants, a leather jacket and big black sunglasses. Most notably, though, the 43-year-old sported a bright blonde wig – and, surprisingly looks A+ in it.

According to ET Online, the show is based on Maureen Orth's book, "Vulgar Favors: Andrew Cunanan, Gianni Versace, and the Largest Failed Manhunt in U.S. History," which tells the story of the July 1997 murder of Gianni Versace. The murder was committed by serial killer Andrew Cunanan, who was responsible for five other killings and, later, committed suicide.

Ricky Martin is set to appear alongside Cruz in the show, portraying Antonio D'Amico, Versace's longtime partner. Edgar Ramirez will play Versace himself and Darren Criss will portray Cunanan in the show airing sometime next year.
