Petra Collins Just Became A Gucci Girl
Petra Collins may be the ultimate cool girl.
She’s stylish, whimsical, a proud feminist, the kind of girl who hangs out with all your favorite celebrities like they’re just regular people, and oh yeah, she takes beautiful, dreamy photographs that explore what it means to be a young, sensual woman.
And as if all that wasn’t enough, this morning Petra added another cool girl attribute to her resumé: she’s officially a Gucci girl.
Earlier today Petra walked in Gucci’s fall/winter 16 fashion show, wearing a gold and red brocade two-piece suit paired with a silky pussy bow that was perfectly suited to match her 1970s vibe.
“It’s floral, baroque, something that Bowie would wear as Ziggy Stardust,” Petra told Vogue, adding that her invitation to play high fashion model for the day “happened pretty quickly. Gucci contacted my agents, and I met with the casting director. When we were being fitted at his office, I was so overstimulated: rhinestone, patches, textures!”
Obviously Gucci keeps it Gucci.
