Within a hall of illusionistic mirrors, Creative Director Alessandro Michele presented his latest Exquisite Gucci collection and his new take on beauty.
On the runway, makeup becomes an accessory. In the words of Thomas de Kluyver, Global Makeup Consultant for Gucci Beauty “Makeup is a fun embellishment worn as an extension of personality rather than something used to conceal or hide yourself.”
Details reveal a punk energy with delicate embellishments—sparkling rhinestones, little eyelashes, metallic foil—an exquisite take on subcultural makeup. Mirroring the collection, the beauty looks are defined by unusual and understated colors accentuating lips while nails are ultra-shiny, painted with signature nail polishes and adorned by bold jewelry.
