Gucci on Film

Apart from the sequel to Sex and the City, another film I'm really looking forward to seeing is Ridley Scott's forthcoming portrayal of the rise, fall, and return of the Gucci brand.

Angelina Jolie has been cast to play the social mountaineering wife of Maurizio Gucci, who was famously convicted for arranging the gunning down of her husband in 1995.

Founded in 1921 by Guccio Gucci, the multi billion dollar fashion company was renowned for the family's temper tantrums, and was on the brink of decline when it was brought back, phoenix-like, to life, by Tom Ford in the 1990s.

I am sure that with Ridley Scott at the helm, the film will be one to watch, especially if the beautiful Patrizia Gucci's own immortal lines are quoted in the script.

Here is just one fabulous example: 'I’d rather cry in a Rolls-Royce, than laugh on a bicycle.'

Love it.
