The celebrity-filled red (uh, purple) carpet featured dozens of dazzling looks — and some genius Marvel-inspired accessories.
The most important red carpet of all.
Yesterday, we got a sneak preview of Gucci's upcoming fragrance, Gucci Guilty. We learned about the scent's composition, the inspiration from Streisand and the Frank Miller-directed TV commercial starring Evan Rachel Wood. The fragrance: The top notes are mandarin and pink peppercorn; middle notes are fruit and lavender; and base notes are amber and patchouli. It smells good, but the amber and patchouli are a little much for me, personally. The name: Apparently, Gucci creative director Frida Giannini is a big Streisand fan. The name "Guilty" came to her while she was in her car listening to a Streisand song of the same name. Another source of inspiration for the fragrance? The cover of the 1976 film A Star Is Born starring Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. In fact the resemblance to the print ad is almost striking (see above). The bottle: The bottle is awesome. It's Gucci's first perfume bottle to feature the interlocking G's and it almost looks like it's hollow from the front while the liquid is more visible from the sides. It's simple and chic, has a retro/art deco feel and would just look really pretty on top of my dresser. The ad campaign:
We have a feeling a lot of fashion people are really into Sin City, so this Frank Miller-directed teaser for the fragrance Gucci Guilty should please. Evan Rachel Wood stars alongside Chris Evans in the film, which will make its debut at the MTV Video Music Awards on September 12. The trailer, shown here, is pretty stunning, too. (Although we can't take Chris Evans seriously--but that's for another time, another blog.)
