There was a lot to talk about at Gucci—from the operating table in the center of the rather sterile show space to a model’s third eye planted firmly between her brows, there’s no doubt Alessandro Michele called upon a special effects team in addition to the standard glam squad to pull this one off. (Judging by the baby dragon carried down the catwalk, we’re going to guess he got the Game of Thrones crew involved.) Here, four things we learned in Milan this morning.
Chameleons are the new designer dog
Paris Hilton made Tinkerbell, her Chihuahua, an ever-present accessory in the early 2000s, but Michele is making a case for teacup dragons, chameleons, and that signature Gucci snake going forward. If you’re not ready for a reptile, carry a replica of your own head that only requires a quick brushing. They say that people often look like their pets, so why not take the concept to a quirky new level?
Rock nipple tassels on the regular, but make it Gucci
The nipple was all the rage just a few seasons back, but now it’s Instagram appropriate thanks to the Italian house. While we imagine these bedazzled pasties are going to be pricey, nobody said making a lasting statement came cheap. Just ask Lil’ Kim.
Toss your tweezers and go full-on Frida Kahlo
Who said two brows are better than one? Here’s hoping Gucci finally puts an end to Instagram arches.
Give your Rapunzel strands a perm
Waist-grazing lengths have quickly become a red carpet staple, but hairstylist Paul Hanlon added a textural twist via tight, fluffy curls. Too much maintenance? Consider a buzz cut (another celebrity favorite) and instead of bleach opt for offbeat orange (a shade spotted on the runway at both Raf Simons and Alexander Wang).
