Gucci Gang

The front row was a real Who’s Who of cool kids and famous faces, all of whom are close friends of the brand, such as Tom Hiddleston, Jared Leto, A$AP Rocky, Florence Welch, Alexa Chung, and Salma Hayek.

Welcome to the Future

The show took place in the Gucci Hub, and the runway was set up to look like a futuristic tunnel made of plexiglass with a pyramid in the center. Red, pink, and purple neon lights lit up the show space, giving off an otherworldly vibe while choppy classical music played all throughout the show.

Makeup Magic

Trust Gucci to create a beauty look that saw two worlds collide (rather beautifully) on the runway.

The first had a raw, retro feel and looked as though models had stepped straight out of the 70s and landed in Milan. In true Pat McGrath style, skin was kept natural, with a barely-there makeup look that felt real and was perfectly complemented with loose, effortless, hippy-inspired locks.

The second of McGrath’s looks was given an otherworldly touch, in line with the show’s theme, with a small silver teardrop jewel placed on the cheekbone. This beautiful but haunting, futuristic feel was further emphasized with elaborately styled hairdos. To top things off, of course, was McGrath’s signature staple, the gorgeous, glittery lip.

Alessandro's Accessories

The world now understands that Gucci’s “new” direction, is here to stay – Michele made sure of that. For Fall/Winter 2017, he delivered pink-soled heels and super-cool waist bags that are guaranteed to be the next big hit in the world of accessories.

Statement Stockings

Last season’s love of tights was carried over and turned up a notch. The brand’s new stockings come in shimmering, sparkling, monogram-printed, and floral-covered versions – the point here is to make a strong statement.

The Bling Ring

Statement jewelry is always key for Michele and, for Fall/Winter 2017, his must-have piece is the nose ring. Gucci’s new septum jewelry is as bold as it can get: chunky, oversized, and there to be noticed.

Next-Level Nails

Aquarium nail trend, eat your heart out, because Gucci has gone even further with super sparkly, colorful claws. With such a major runway moment for long, glittery, next-level nails, we predict the next Instagram nail trend has arrived.
