Gucci announced today that Drew Barrymore would be its new face for fine jewelry, and then we saw the ad. The actress looks gorgeous but almost unrecognizeable - her head's at an odd, upturned angle, and her pout is so lush, one would think it was injected into the photograph. Drew's also doing the Cover Girl campaign for Fall, so maybe the Gucci team wanted a different, less signature look for the ad, but now comes the next question: Where's the product? We understand the ad is a fantasy, but we'd still like to see what Drew is getting paid to wear. And we can see a tiny glimmer of jeweled something peeking out from Drew's hand, but sadly, that's not usually the way we wear our jewelry. Perhaps this spread was secretly sponsored by Cover Girl, since Drew's lips and eyes look thoroughly coated in something sparkling?

Fashion Law & Order: The Guess Vs. Gucci Battle Gets Ugly in Court
This is juicier than a Law & Order episode. Guess' CEO Paul Marciano took the stand yesterday to defend his brand against Gucci's knockoff allegations and my, did things get interesting. Marciano, who was questioned for a full four hours, insisted that Guess hadn't copied Gucci specifically, but had created designs inspired by a multitude of brands that were in fashion at the time, WWD is reporting. When asked about his brand's diamond-logoed “G” pattern, similar to a Gucci pattern, Marciano said, "This kind of pattern is common in the world of fashion and it’s not particular to Gucci.” “What I understand here, which is very frequent [in fashion], is an inspiration to create an original bag of G’s with the same components," he added. "That’s what design is.” Okay, fine. Except here's the thing--Guess' lawyer, Louis Ederer, somehow got his hands on emails between Guess buyers and employees at the company's footwear provider, Marc Fisher, and they do not help Guess' case.
