Ranveer Singh’s Gucci look is breaking the Internet; but is it a major yay or nay?
Ranveer Singh's Gucci wardrobe may not be everyone's cup of tea
Ranveer Singh’s Gucci shoot is making his famous friends cheer, as everyone, from Arjun Kapoor to Zoya Akhtar and Alia Bhatt, seems to be a fan of the Simmba actor’s new look. Though Ranveer has thanked Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele in his post, it’s not clear whether Michele styled the look himself - because the look is… a lot to take in, and bears the actor’s signature desi flair.
In the past few months Gucci has been pushing its celebrity-led campaigns hard - from using self-styled shots by celebs from their homes to setting up a star-studded talk show to promote a line, and using paparazzi-style streetwear images of A-listers - the luxury brand is going all out!
In the latest images, Ranveer Singh sports a striking blue shiny technical polyester jersey featuring the Gucci vintage logo label and green and red Web ribbon detail. He pairs it with a handbag from Gucci’s Jackie collection, a long collared GG coat by Gucci, and he also throws in some retro shades and long hair extensions, seemingly channeling a Jared Leto-esque vibe.
However, the actor does experiment with some controversial styling choices as he sports a rather elaborate gold necklace to this look along with a red hat which doesn’t really work. And while Ranveer’s B-town colleagues are in awe, and the look is certainly edgy, it can’t exactly be deemed a runway-worthy curation, at least not until Gucci boss Michele himself weighs in on it.
