gucci by Frida Giannini 2009

Above are the pictures from Frida Giannini’s (the creative director for Gucci) designs for the 2009 Gucci collection. I’m loving the leather jacket with the buckles. Leather jackets have definately been the “it” item for this winter and this one here is definately rocking. The black dress, although it missed the high season for the full length casual dress, this walks that line between casual and formal. The top of the dress and neckline are a different but sexy take on the full length dress and the flower print on the dress helps to dress it down just that little bit more. I’ve always loved flowy fabrics and the chiffon and draping on the dress is definitely no exception.

Rhianna is a favourite of Frida Gianni as well and at the “A Night to Benefit Raising Malawi and UNICEF” hosted by Gucci and Madonna in February 2008. I think the Gucci green dress she wore to the event is positively gorgeous and elegant. The belt adds that tiny bit of edge to the elegant dress which totally suits Rhianna.

I like this pink Gucci dress as well although I think that Rhianna’s hair and makeup sort of ruin the elegant look. I’ve never been a big fan of her short hair cut, but I think it looks quite strange here with the curls creating too much volume at the top, leaving the side and back looking cropped and boyish. While the eye makeup colour look awesome, they don’t really suit the dress and would be better suited to a night out clubbing. The lipstick is also definitely too light for the overall look. The brooch completes the look and brings the it up a notch and a half.
