Gucci’s next show outing is November 2
Take note, Angelenos—Alessandro Michele is bringing Milanese maximalism to Hollywood Boulevard to present his “Gucci Love Parade” collection on November 2. During the initial stages of the COVID-19 lockdown, Michele was one of several major designers to announce that he would showcase collections on his own terms. And, unlike some of his peers, he has stayed true to his word. Will we see another co-branded “hacking” like the Balenciaga-infused Aria collection? Who knows! What we do know is that in conjunction with the show, Gucci will provide support to various mental health organizations and charitable initiatives that aim to eradicate the community’s homelessness crisis.

Carrie’s latest look goes viral
Following the furore caused by her instantly-sold out baby blue Norma Kamali Diana dress last week, the latest pap shots of SJP on the And Just Like That set speak more to the kooky style that propelled Carrie Bradshaw to fame from the get go. The actress was seen in a pink and white gingham number, cozy cardi, and, rather bizarrely, purple cleaning gloves to go and a Babushka-style head scarf. Hey, we did predict the return of gloves as a Spring Summer ’22 trend….albeit this wasn’t quite what we were thinking. Anyway! Later that day we got back to thinking about the dress—and it turns out it’s the Snap Housedress from local New York City-based designer Batsheva, which comes in at $125. Even sitting pretty in a Park Avenue penthouse with Mr Big (…Bucks), we love to see that our girl is still one for an affordable fashion find.
