Gucci’s flagship London store at 18 Sloane Street was recently treated to a renovation to bring it in line with the brand’s contemporary 21st Century image. The new-look boutique was unveiled on the eve of the G20 meeting in April, as Alexandra Schulman, the editor of British Vogue threw a lavish dinner for Gucci’s creative director Frida Giannini. Guests and revelers included Sophie Dahl with fiancé Jamie Cullum, Claudia Schiffer, the Geldof sisters and Richard Ashcroft.
Just like their stores, Gucci’s campaigns are hitting more modern notes. Using a slew of hip stars to promote their fresh image, glossy Gucci ads have seen actress Clare Danes, popstar Rhianna and Brit model Lily Donaldson fly the glamorous Gucci flag.
Often going above and beyond her Gucci obligations, Rhianna in particular is a huge fan of the label. She is pictured regularly wearing Gucci and sporting the most up-to-date Gucci sunglasses. Other fans of Gucci sunglasses include Catherine Zeta-Jones, Kylie, Paris Hilton, Angelina Jolie, Madonna, Katherine Heigl and the beautiful Camilla Belle.
Often ostentatious Gucci sunglasses celebrate the label’s glitzy vibrant Italian heritage. Bold and strong with arresting detail on the arms, regularly incorporating the ‘G’ of the logo, Gucci shades are flash and fabulous. The new collection for 2009 is comprehensive and smart, using cut out detailing, hints of gold, hearts and baroque patterns. Colours are diverse, from black and tortoiseshell to red and white, there’s a shade for every fashionista. And the styles vary greatly too, from classic over-sized square and circular lenses and frames to blinged up aviators and a nod to the ever-popular ray-ban style.
Proving there’s still plenty of call for striking European style shades, Gucci have come up trumps with this season’s sunglasses collection and we urge you to unleash your inner diva and GO GUCCI!

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana know exactly how to create a stir. From their sexy designs and their sunglasses to their catwalk shows and adverts, the D&G impact is super and sensational. Known for the glamorous dresses they design and their big statement sunglasses, D&G have been wooing stylish men and women across the globe for over 20 years.
In recent years their advertising has taken centre stage, as their choice of models have wowed the public and been the basis for much admiration and discussion. You may be familiar with the name David Gandy. In 2006 he was recruited by D&G and has since been the face of D&G’s Light Blue fragrance, as well as taking to the catwalk for D&G every season. This delicious piece of eye-candy, originally from Essex, got women every wear hot under the collar as he posed seductively in a pair of white briefs and little else, to advertise the D&G scent.
In a clever ploy to tantalise the opposite sex, D&G’s next talking point came in the form of a pouting Marilyn-esque Scarlett Johansson, deployed to seduce men and win over women for the launch of their 2009 Cosmetics Collection – ‘The Make Up’. Chosen for her natural beauty, chameleon qualities and her sensual, provocative nature, Scarlett proved the perfect choice to front a glamorous D&G campaign.
And whilst Scarlett Johansson smolders on giant billboards and posters, celebrities get their D&G kicks in real life by wearing beautiful D&G dresses and hiding from the paps behind stunning D&G sunglasses. Celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe, big screen sirens Jessica Alba and Reece Witherspoon and actress Eva Longoria all enjoy wearing Dolce and Gabbana sunglasses and the current campaign shows supermodel Claudia Schiffer, relaxing on the beach in her marble-effect D&G sunglasses.
So take your lead from the A-List and invest in a pair of super duper D&G shades… Not only are they one of the most popular labels to be seen in this summer, Dolce and Gabbana sunglasses will make you look like a star!

Guess! was thrown into the super league in the early Eighties with the launch of it’s ‘3 zip Marilyn’ jean – the sexiest pair of jeans ever to hit New York and the entire collection sold out within hours. From a sassy pair of jeans, an international brand was built.
The company headed up by French siblings, the Marciano brothers, combine an all American style with a dash of European flair which has become the blueprint for every offering the label serves up.
Watches are dear to the Guess! label being one of the first products the company sold way back in 1984, and in 2004 Guess! celebrated the twentieth year of it’s watch collection by issuing a special addition watch. The same year the company expanded it’s accessories portfolio considerably. In line with their glamorous outlook, the Guess! watch collection is as eye-catching and as playful as the world has come to expect.
In the dim and distant past the majority of the range was made of steel... not so now. The introduction of gold, silver and diamonds has created a dazzling aura around the watches and boosted their retail price somewhat too! A number of Guess! watches retail in their thousands as the company battles it out with labels such as D&G and Fendi at the top end of the market. However luckily for the less fortunate among us, Guess! haven’t lost the common touch and are able to combine style with affordability to offer us a stunning range at around the hundred mark, which’ll keep even the sourest of pusses gleeful and certainly the ugliest of wrists beautiful!
