Mariacarla Boscono might be the star with main billing in this shoot for Vogue Italia – in fact the shoot is even titled after her: The Outstanding M.C.B. But the best supporting cast members are surely Gucci’s Art Deco dresses, making their way into almost every shot.
The great thing about Patrick Demarchelier’s editorial is that it shows just how versatile these shining deco dresses are. All it takes to transform them is a little bit of magic with styling, hair and makeup. A micro fringed pixie crop and thick lashes places the Outstanding M.C.B somewhere between Liza Minnelli and Twiggy. A sleek shoulder-length bob keeps it classically ’40s. Full bouffant hair and winged out liner, on the other hand, is decidedly 1960s.
And sleek, straight hair? It’s a little bit disco, but very very now.
