Once upon a time in Hollywood, Creative Director Alessandro Michele used California’s iconic Hollywood Boulevard as the runway for Gucci’s latest show to showcase his vision of La La Land in 115 looks. The bright lights of orange and red at the El Capitana Theater lit up the road below, lined with director chairs. The stars came out to support with a front row lineup of Serena Williams, Dakota Johnson, Chris Martin, Miley Cyrus, Lizzo, Steven Yuen, Salma Hayek, Trace Ellis Ross, and Gwyneth Paltrow who wore a suit paying homage to her Tom Ford Gucci-era. Spotlights roamed the sky, like a film premiere.
The creative director has exhibited collections everywhere from Milan to New York to Rome to Paris. Michele’s own version of Americana shined at the forefront of the collection, fitting perfectly into the infamous street. With Ridley Scott’s House of Gucci set to release later this month, a celebration of the magic of movie-making seemed timely. Michele’s references to Hollywood don’t begin and end here, but can be seen throughout his work. In 2019, Gucci’s Chateau Marmont collection revolved around the timelessness of the storied Sunset Boulevard hotel. His infatuation with the world of L.A. dipped into the spectacle of fame. Mixing themes of cowboys with nods to the glamour of Old Hollywood while maintaining the whimsical and demure sexiness he created for the brand, Michele created a moment in time and an assemblage of designs completely unique from all of the aspects it refers to.
Macaulay Culkin made his runway debut, joining a star studded runway featuring an array of celebs like musicians Phoebe Bridgers, St. Vincent, and Steve Lacy, along with actors Jodie Turner-Smith, Jeremy Pope, and Gucci icon Jared Leto.
A cross street of wide-eyed transplants and the ones who have it all formed within the collection. Looks picked from the best of both worlds: Old Hollywood with boas and fur jackets styled over shiny slip dresses and vacation culture with fashion forward tourist-inspired Hawaiian style shirts, trendy for leaning into the over-the-top tack. Opulence blended with normalcy as gorgeous gowns trimmed with feathers followed cowboy hats paired with athleisure jackets fit for a sightseer. Visible garters and see through lace in light greens and neutrals brought sexiness to the formal 50’s and 60’s gowns referenced. Classic Gucci tailored suits featured throughout, some getting an update being styled with no shirt and pasties or jackets paired with the ever-trendy bike short. Some looks were even accessorized with sex toy necklaces, embracing the camp on full display in the collection.
