GUCCI’S ALESSANDRO MICHELE TALKS BEAUTY & CO-ED SHOWS WITH GQ



December’s issue of GQ puts the spotlight on Gucci creative director, Alessandro Michelle. The designer appears before the lens of photographer Pari Dukovic for the feature. The it designer of the moment, Michelle talks to GQ about his infatuation with beauty and the idea to do co-ed runway shows.




ALESSANDRO MICHELE ON BEAUTY

Opening up about his background, Alessandro Michele shares, “I spent all my life hypnotized from the beauty.” The designer explains, “I had two different kind of parents. My mother was obsessive with movie stars and cinema and Hollywood because she worked in movies. And my father was obsessed with beauty everywhere—in art, in nature, animals. So I think that it’s something that is in my DNA of my family.”



Elaborating on the extent to which he values beauty, Michele continues, “The day that I will not have the chance to run under the beauty, I don’t want to live anymore.” He adds, “Because it’s one of my first reasons to live. I mean, when I am nervous, I try to look at something beautiful. I get in a beautiful place. I try to read something beautiful. I try to read something like a beautiful poem–something that makes me feel better because it’s like my religion.”
