Gucci's new beauty offerings (WWD)
UPDATE: It’s official ladies- the first pics of Gucci’s new beauty range have landed on our desks, and we’re beyond excited. We’re already coveting the oh-so-chic bronzer brush and that stunning red nail polish- ooh, and not forgetting that totally gorgeous coral lipstick. It’s swoon central here on the Grazia beauty desk!
What’s more, in a recent interview, Gucci creative director Frida Giannini said while the project officially began four years ago, “the idea emerged much earlier — I’ve always wanted to do a cosmetics line for Gucci.” And we can guarantee that every product in the new range is tried and tested by Frida herself: “As a woman, of course I tried absolutely every product and color we made,” adding she was “obsessed” with finding the right palette, a challenge she achieved by scouring the nearly century-old fashion house’s archives and mood boards for inspiration, as well as photos of style icons such as Lauren Hutton, Jerry Hall, Jane Birkin and Veruschka.
Frida also said, “Makeup is part of the holistic brand universe for luxury fashion brands and is a natural next step for Gucci.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

Breaking beauty news reaching Grazia HQ informs us that Monegasque royal Charlotte Casiraghi, who is fifth in line to the throne, has just been named as the face of a yet-to-be-launched Gucci cosmetics line. Casiraghi is a long-time friend of Gucci as its official equestrian ambassador and already appears in Gucci’s ‘Forever Now’ ad campaign.
Although the new cosmetics collection won’t be available until September, rumours have it that the range will consist of eye, face, lip, nail and skin products? A royal beauty bonanza, we say!
