As the 2017 LACMA Art + Film Gala in LA on Saturday (November 4) was presented by Gucci, there were quite a number of Gucci looks in attendance from the label’s devoted darlings.
Dakota Johnson: You might recognize this Gucci Spring 2018 embellished, plisse gown from the Red Carpet Wish List for Mandy Moore. Yet, its languid, boudoir glamour was actually in keeping with Dakota’s style, too. I know some may qualify the swoop of her hairstyle as a bit mature, and I wouldn’t disagree. However, I did like the drama brought forth from her long earrings and oxblood lip.
Zoe Saldana: I think Zoe may be the only one who could wear this Gucci gown and not make me want to immediately rip off the giant pink rose corsages from the flamenco, caped shoulders.
Amy Adams: Mixing fun and fashion, Amy took a playful approach in this bow-printed gown.
Salma Hayek: Speaking of fun—and of bows—it was love at first sight when I saw Salma rock this holographic shimmer gown that was positively dazzling on her. I love how she let the feminine edginess of the bow-bedecked dress take top billing with her sleek hair, moderate jewels, and matching sapphire clutch all proving complementary without being overcooked.
Kerry Washington: Revisiting her edgy fashion prowess, the ‘Scandal’ actress served up just the right amount of glamorous directional flair in this ruffled lace gown.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: The bow motif popped up again in this Gucci Resort 2018 gown, the rich lavender hue of which was lovely on the model.
Rowan Blanchard: Some may object to the juxtaposition of the military-style jacket top and floaty, floral skirt. But this was an odd couple that proved opposites can attract in quirky, cool ways.
Lindsey Vonn: I was totally charmed by Lindsey’s sweet, feminine entrance in this poppy floral cape dress, accessorised so sophisticatedly by her matching red sandals and clutch and sleek ’do.
Charlotte Casiraghi: Something about this silken dress translated as a bit unkempt with the sky-blue skirt puddling a bit too much at her feet. With all the embellishment, that diamond necklace certainly wasn’t necessary either.
Soko: I was getting a strong vamp vibe from this ensemble, to which the intense leather-accented gown and red makeup both bolstered the other in ratcheting up the gothic walk on the dark side.
Jared Leto: The actor’s never been shy to go gaga for Gucci with full-on decorative prints and patterns. So, this double floral-embroidered jacket moment was still quite safe for him. And, for that, I was a fan—and that his pants were properly tailored.
Tali Lennox: I believe I would have much preferred the delicacy of this pretty-in-pink ruffle gown without the harsher contrasts of the black cuffs and collar.
Timothée Chalamet: Always the cool customer, the young actor suited up in handsomely plush velvet.
