As reported back in May on our forums, Charlotte Casiraghi is the face of Gucci‘s new cosmetics line. The brunette beauty, who’s the fifth in line to the throne of Monaco, was shot by Turkish photographic duo and long-term Gucci collaborators Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. For the first official image, Charlotte poses looking every inch the Gucci woman, holding a compact mirror from the Italian fashion house’s premiere makeup collection.
All of the right elements are present for a stimulating cosmetics ad, however, our forum members aren’t so sure. “I thought she only fronts the limited-edition ranges for Gucci. These are too literal and underwhelming, but the first shot is OK,” commented Benn98.
“I was actually excited when I first heard about this, but now that I’m seeing it, I’m a bit underwhelmed,” shared justaguy.
Also left unimpressed with the campaign shot was GIVENCHYlover, who posted, “So amateurish!”
Forum member loladonna questioned whether or not Charlotte was the right choice for Gucci: “No way would she be in this campaign if she weren’t royal.” She then went on to say, “It looks like one of those commercial ads that try to look like high fashion ads.”
“Very 70s style, but is not the best campaign,” noted burbuja8910.
