Can You Name The Celebrity In Gucci’s New Guilty Fragrance Ads?

You’d think if a brand pays who-knows-how-much for a celebrity to star in their ad campaign, they’d want that celebrity to be recognizable in the final product. That brings us to the new ads for Gucci’s latest fragrance, Guilty. Recognize the actress seen here? I sure didn’t; I had to look it up to identify her. Here are a few hints: she’s young, her fiance is scary, and she’s been nominated for a Golden Globe. Still can’t figure out who it is? Check out another image and find out after the jump.

Quotable: Drew Barrymore Brought Gucci Down

“Never wear a high neck dress with a high belt. It makes your t*ts look like they are at your waist. I’m so sorry, Gucci, I have tarnished your name.”

Drew Barrymore, on the infamous designer gown she wore to the Golden Globes four years ago. Honey, we’re over it! [Styleite] Keep reading »

Gucci’s Spring 2010 Video Campaign Takes Place In A Screensaver


Behold Gucci‘s painfully awkward video campaign for the spring 2010 collection. This is the type of thing where we get what the company was going for, yet can’t help but wonder how weird the filming must have been. Here we have some models trying to be serious, but instead they look like wax Barbie and Ken dolls. They’re so stiff it’s like a kid butted their heads together and made kissy noises. The background: a beach scene so vivid it could only be a digitally altered image either lifted from a Windows ’99 screensaver or “Saving Nemo.” Things start getting really creepy with intense still shots from the torso up that make you think the guy has to be getting a blow job off camera, and then whoa — she’s totally masturbating while sitting in his lap! Cut to: our male model, who has suddenly turned into Beatnik Ken in an all-black ensemble because, clearly, this is deep fashion … we’ll let you take the rest from here. [YouTube] Keep reading »

Angelina Jolie Slips Into Some Gucci

Most think of Gucci and see interlocking G’s, horsebit hobo bags, or that red and green stripe. But there’s an entire sordid past of the Gucci family, which Tom Ford and Frida Giannini have nothing to do with – and it’s not about design. In 1995, the heir to the Gucci throne, Maurizio Gucci, had his life cut short when he was brutally shot. Behind the murder? Apparently, his wife Patrizia Reggiani set the plot for his early death. While she faced 29 years in prison, the hired assassin earned a life sentence for the murder and Patrizia’s psychic, who contacted the killer, was sent to jail for 25 years.

Sounds like a movie, no? Well, Fox 2000 thinks so, and Angelina Jolie has been approached to play the distressed wife. As for Maurizio? Leonardo DiCaprio is the first choice, but we’ll have to wait to see if that works out. Either way, a Gucci drama will be a welcome addition to the influx of fashion films on movie billboards these days. [Variety]

New Gucci Spot Reveals Models Can Speak

No, it’s not an “SNL” skit. It’s the latest video advert from Gucci, a “behind the scenes” look at their fall/winter 2009/2010 line. If you like listening to crazy-thin models with wackadoodle names talk over each other about each other while wearing clothes that you cannot afford and striking random, gawky poses, you will love this spot. All that model chattering aside, I would die, and I do mean die, for those thigh-high, skintight boots. Baldor? Is that actually one of the model’s (real? fake?) names? Ah, fashion.

Gucci And Mary J. Blige Team Up For The Ladies

It’s not all about glitz and glam; Gucci also loves to give. The luxury brand is doing just that with their latest partnership with R&B icon, Mary J. Blige. To raise funds for Blige’s charity, Foundation For the Advancement of Women Now, INC, simply known as FFAWN — yes, the name could have been just a little shorter — they are relaunching a special-edition watch. The all-black, logo-embossed time piece, known as the Twirl watch, will be on sale on September 16, exclusively at Gucci’s 5th Avenue, New York City store (and nationwide on the 17th). A percentage of the proceeds will go directly to Blige’s charity. Now for the tough part: At $1895 a pop, we wonder just how many people will be springing for this pricey piece. Good luck Gucci.
