When we heard, just about a month ago, that James Franco was involved in a documentary film about Gucci, we weren't exactly like, "Oh, that makes perfect sense." But then again, that's never been a reaction to anything James Franco does, has it (we're starting to think that's the whole idea)?
Anyway, the actor-slash-producer-slash-many other things put the wheels in motion for the first documentary about the historic house of Gucci and its current creative director, Frida Giannini, who flies relatively under the radar as far as creative directors of big fashion houses go. It's called The Director and will bow at the Tribeca Film Festival this weekend.
We chatted with the film's director Christina Voros to find out how this documentary came about.
While her younger sister Elle just became old enough to snag her first Teen Vogue cover, Dakota, who is four years older has apparently reached what Cosmopolitan refers to as her "Cosmo years." Just a couple of months after her Marc Jacobs perfume ads were banned in the UK for "sexualizing children," the 17-year-old actress and NYU student covers the women's magazine's February issue.
It's not something we necessarily saw coming--especially since we've gotten used to seeing her in slightly more fashion-focused publications like W and British Elle--but is it inappropriate?
