A group of Gucci-donning pretties were seated front row at the Gucci Spring 2016 show held during Milan Fashion Week on Wednesday (September 23) in Milan, Italy.
Dakota Johnson: This Gucci Fall 2015 frock, accented by a bow collar and bee brooches, saw the ‘Black Mass’ actress exploring the rich colourway of burgundy along with more ruffles and embellishment than we sometimes see from her sleekly simple statements. However, it only proved that this brand of feminine charm works for her just, as well.
Salma Hayek: Her Resort 2016 look likewise had a touch of darlingness with the embroidered sweater serving up a sweet retro sensibility balanced by iconic horsebit-belted skirt. I love the pop of the red leather Gucci GG ‘Marmont’ clutch that plays off the floral patchwork. The massive platform pumps were less successful.
Alexa Chung: While part of me wished to see the full detail of this Resort 2015 vintage-leaning dress and its embellished collar, the other part of me was just as happy about the chicly clean, modern edge that the black coat provided in pairing with the horsebit natural fur Gucci slippers.
Charlotte Casiraghi: Chevron stripes and a throwback mood defined Charlotte’s colourfully geometric Resort 2016 dress that certainly had the makings of a rosy outlook. The animal-head belt and metallic-pink Gucci ‘Sylvia’ sandals provided a quirky finish to the ensemble.
Anna Dello Russo: Speaking of quirky, there was a downright fashion mania happening with the Vogue editrix’s look that was a close mirror image of its original Fall 2015 runway presentation. The discordant mix of upholstery-like florals with the bright red blouse and black shoes was nothing short of eye-catching—like it or not. It wasn’t my cup of tea, but say what you will, Anna can always be counted on to embrace the more eccentric statements and push the style envelope. I do wish the Gucci ‘Dionysus’ handbag and abstractly-printed hat had been banished as they only muddled the effect even more.
