Faye Dunaway is the New Face of Gucci
Faye Dunaway has led a storied career, with iconic roles from Bonnie and Clyde to Chinatown to Barfly, her work has endured generations. But her most memorable role might be that of the late Joan Crawford in Mommie Dearest, a jaw dropping account of the movie star’s dark maternal secrets.
Dunaway sets her sights on fashion in her latest project, which features her as a different kind of Hollywood mother: indeed, imagine Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise in 20 years. As this fictional Hollywood matriarch embarks on a day of shopping, tennis, and signing autographs, French singer and actress Soko accompanies her as her adoring daughter.
The short fashion film is for a Gucci campaign featuring Dunaway as the face for Sylvie 2018; as the ladies sport some high-end Gucci looks, the Sylvie bag pops up throughout. It concludes with Dunaway gifting the bag to Soko, as if to pass it on to a new generation.
