A thunderstorm trembles over Milan and is heard over the Gucci fashion show sound track. On the stage, there’s a mass of proposals for the delicate embroidered dresses, strewed with lace, with lamé or decorated with ruffles of transparent muslin. Clothing rich in detail and prints. The long airy dresses or the long panelled mid-knee skirts contribute to this summery wardrobe a real taste of femininity, with no confusion between gender. Romanticism, with an oriental side seen through Chinese details that embellish the satin jackets or skirts. It’s a relaxed intellectual who shows, in big sparkly prescription glasses, wearing baby platforms or slippers with the double G initial buckle or decorated with pearls. Salma Hayek and Charlotte Casiraghi have braved the rain to applaud this new bright wardrobe signed by Alessandro Michele.
Interview of Salma Hayek :
I thought it was probably the most beautiful fashion show I have ever seen. I was speechless. I think it was extraordinary, the whole thing and the amount, there was so many, it was like an army of characters that you have never seen before in your life. I thought it was very strong and brave and exuberant and elegant somehow at the same time. I am very very very impressed, really. It’s the first time I’ve looked at a fashion show and didn’t think for a moment, what can I wear? What would suit me? Because it was so overwhelming and so emotional that it would have been a sin to think about that, it’s just looking at art.
