Gucci Gucci Goo

When Gucci’s new creative director Alessandro Michele debuted his collection last fall, I admit I was a little puzzled. The much heralded departure from the sleek, sexy look that the label had been known for under the direction of Tom Ford and later Frida Gianinni had been replaced by a more eclectic, dare we say frumpy chic look? The first collection erred on the side of ill fitting, and unflattering. Despite the obvious, the fashion flock hailed Mr. Michele the second coming, reminding us of a modern twist on the Emperor’s New Clothes. While that might make for some interesting street style from everyone’s favorite fashion victims, the question remained whether or not we would see it”in real life.” or on the red carpet. That burning question was answered last weekend, when the star-studded LACMA event took place and Gucci seemed to be the label of choice.

( Full disclosure: In my opinion, the second collection, while playing to the same theme, felt more wearable, appeared to be better cut than it’s predecessor, and is serving to provide a much needed shift in the world of fashion.)

Without further ado, here are some celebs sporting Gucci on the red carpet. What do you think?

On a similar, yet unrelated note, do you think Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy secretly hates Kim Kardashian? Some of her absolute worst looks, including her Met Gala disaster during her last pregnancy were designed especially for her by her supposedly dear friend Riccardo. Here is what she wore to the LACMA party:

Well it certainly isn't what I might call matronly! Is Riccardo Tischi off giggling somewhere at his latest Joke?

Well it certainly isn’t what I might call matronly! Is Riccardo Tisci off giggling somewhere at his latest joke? Real friends don’t let their friends go out looking like this! Or upholster them like a lumpy sofa as he did in the past.

Let us know what you think of these looks in the comments. Sometimes it takes a little while for our eye to adjust to new proportions, but if I was walking the red carpet, I know I would want to be in something a little more flattering than these!
