Milan Fashion Week was off to a strong start today with Gucci, but don’t worry if you missed it. Savoir Flair’s editors have combed through all the information to bring you the key details from the just-wrapped show, from backstage action and celebrity sightings to beauty details and more.
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.
Creative Director Alessandro Michele presented his first unified women’s and men’s runway show with over 119 looks and an impressively diverse lineup of models.
The Social Network
Photographer and artist Coco Capitan took over Gucci’s Instagram account to give followers of the brand behind-the-scenes updates.
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.
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
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.
