With Jared Leto, Edward Enninful and Dakota Johnson among his loyal fans, the fashion genius became a celebrity favorite, his creations often gracing the world’s most stylish events.

Michele brought her romantic flair and fearless approach to gender fluidity to Gucci and wasn’t afraid to turn heads with her daring wardrobe choices.

In 2020, Harry Styles found himself at the center of a media storm after he chose to wear a baby blue tiered Gucci dress on the cover of Vogue.

The fashion week darling said The times in March that she loves to see men wear colorful and extravagant outfits, including skirts or dresses to challenge the concept of masculinity.
