Gucci is Gold ! Great Gatsby ! Spring/ Summer 2012

The models came down the catwalk and swished, swashed, in gold and black offering the occasional glimpse of glistening naked skin, and toned bodies, martini glass breast’s, defining biceps, exquisitely sculpted legs looking ever so enchantingly glamorous in the creations of Gucci’s creative director Frida Giannini.  It was at this point that all the men had been knocked out! TKO’d, by the Gucci spring, summer collection for 2012.  The women, were left wondering how big is my butt going to look in that. Milan fashion week kick off was a big hit, and why not, these styles were also a big hit in the 1920’s and Gucci has history to fall back on as it goes into it’s 90th year. While drop waist dresses with horizontal geometric lines can be a nightmare for most women, the collection was  mesmerizing, sleek and the lines drew your eyes to all the right zones.  The real losers here were the plastic surgeons who do breast implants. The Gucci show was not a pretty spectacle with pretty girls in pretty dresses. It was a divine spectacle, with glamorous girls in glamours dresses that left you with an intense feeling to rush out after the show for a chilled bottle of Dom Pérignon Rosé to cool your senses. The party at Gucci and My Name is Khan never stops. Bravo Gucci!

Gucci ! Milano Food and Fashion 2012 !

Monte Carlo to Milano it’s an easy drive, in a Ferrari and if you have Rihanna with you, then you better make sure that you have a empty truck waiting in Milano for all the Gucci bags after the Gucci spring, summer 2012 show. Music is to a fashion show, what almond oil is to Rihanna’s exquisitely sculpted legs, grafted. Without it there would be no glow. Those who survive in this digital age are those who are able to swiftly change gears like a Ferrari, or you die. The Music industry died a slow and painful death at the hands of the Internet while the fashion industry embraced it and is making it an integral part of the production of a fashion show. London fashion week saw the tweets from Burberry who tweeted a picture of the model prior to her hitting the catwalk. Gucci today will have it’s spring, summer 2012 virtual streaming show putting millions of people and I am talking in China and India in the front row seats. Milano has many places you can call home away from home and for a Canadian the home becomes the Four Seasons Hotel Milano, natch! Chef’s and Rihanna are used to being in the spot light, in front of camera’s, or live performance so here is a look at the kitchen of Il Teatro, at the Four Seasons Hotel Milano. The buzz is building models will be start arriving and it will be showtime at Gucci, walking, walking and walking the catwalk, the action never stops here at My Name is Khan for the Chef’s, models, and all those backstage getting the show ready, It’s, Milano, it’s Gucci, food, wine, fashion and women.

Backstage London Fashion Week

There is nothing as exciting as being with the production team backstage whether it’s fashion, or a concert the buzz is all around and one need not get caffeinated to get going, the energy is all-surround. If you are sitting in the audience then you will not know, that several models had to jet out to Milan to see if they could get cast for the Gucci spring summer 2012 show and all the chaos backstage will never be known to you. Last minute fitting’s, hair and make up, people running around with clipboards is all part of the scene and what a scene it is. Then off-course there is the food, where is it? sometime it’s as hard to find as the models. To me this is the best show in town, backstage! For the make up artist’s like Gemma Sutton the magic is in her brushes, and while everyone is ready to hit that catwalk the make-up and hair stylist are not too far off ready to apply that last touch of perfection. It’s fashion, it’s London and the action never stops at My Name is Khan.

Gucci Models Retreat – Milan to Amalfi !

Heavy Weight contender the Italian fashion brand Gucci flexed it’s muscles for their spring summer 2012 collection summoning countless models to Milan causing havoc at London Fashion Week. Several models got pulled at the last minute, and anyone in film production, or fashion knows what that can spell. Several models arrived in London late after the Marc  Jacobs New York show which ran late with models unable to make the last flight back to London and had to be pulled.  This can be anyone worst nightmare. Marc Jacobs holding rights till the last minute prevented several models from leaving in case they were cast. Then for London came the bomb Saturday with Gucci calling for pre-casting for the show tomorrow, several models had few options remaining but to head off to Milan and get back to London for Monday. New York and Milan call the shots in fashion, it’s where the money is. So what happens in London?  It’s not as if London has not fielded bombs before and they have managed quite well.  So what about those girls who walk the catwalk.  Here is what I would tell them.  Do your shows, New York, hit London, finish off the Gucci show in Milan then go straight to Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi, where you can simply catch up, relax, have a great view and then have the pleasure of  consuming the exotic foods prepared by the team of Chef  Alberto Annarumma.

In-fact I suggest that everyone after the Gucci spring summer show 2012 and London Fashion Week unite in Amalfi, the word “Convento”, should be enough to pull you there.  I can tell you eat all you want, you will want to. So you catwalk killers needing a rest, a tranquil oasis awaits, tell them Hollywood sent you and who know what pleasant surprise awaits at Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi.  There is always the time to replenish your body, after all it’s what make you the money.  Pray, eat, love with My Name is Khan where the adventure of discovery never stops.
