Last night we got to watch House of Gucci, the American crime drama thriller, which has proved to be one of the most highly anticipated films of the year.
It was Lady Gaga, that brought this film to our attention on Instagram when she posted the above picture. The picture features Adam Driver who will play Maurizio Gucci and Lady Gaga plays Patrizia Reggiani, Maurizio's ex-wife.
The film tells the story of how Reggiani (Lady Gaga), the ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci, plotted to kill her husband, who was the grandson of the illustrious fashion designer Guccio Gucci.
The fashion brand Gucci was founded in 1921 by Guccio Gucci in Florence, Tuscany. Family feuds over the years meant that by 1993 there was no more family involvement within the Guccio Gucci S.p.A. group. Only two years later on the 27th March 1995 Maurizio was shot dead in the foyer of Gucci's Milan office by a hitman.

First shot in the back by the hitman, Maurizio turned around to face the assailant, and was shot twice in the head. Ex-wife Reggiani ordered the hit and served 16 years in jail for her involvement and crimes. Reggiani has never admitted her part in the murder, and her daughters still proclaim her innocence.
Reggiani was often referred to as the "Black Widow" which stemmed from her love of black magic, and is something we hope is captured in the film.
Lady Gaga has been seen wearing many pairs of vintage sunglasses over the years including this Gianfrance Ferre frame which featured on the cover of The Guardian Observer magazine back in 2011. In the film she wears a pair of fabulous vintage Christian Dior ski goggles with a red front. Originally these frames came with a red, pink and turquoise interchangeable front cover. Interestingly, we noticed that the the Christian Dior emblems had been removed from the ski goggles for the film.

Adam Driver has been spotted sporting a fabulous pair of oversized aviator frames which were donned by Maurizio back in the 70's/80's. Metal detail is visible to the temporal sides, very similar to that of the Dunhill Aviators, particularly model 6097.

Jeremy Irons Plays Rodolfo Gucci in the movie and he too sports a vintage inspired frame. A strong bold acetate reminiscent of our very own Elite Maurice frame in black.
Once again it seems the stylists have got this film nailed on, and the House of Gucci wardrobe department is going to have us going wild.
Another stand out sunglasses frame for us was the cameo role by Madalina Ghenea who plays Sophia Loren. She can be spotted in a fabulous maroon and crystal acetate frame with warm brown graduated lenses. Very similar to our own Piave 150 in maroon crystal.
