Where goes Gucci follows headlines. The September 2014 issue of Allure includes a high-gloss, all-Gucci beauty story featuring Ola Rudnicka photographed by Patrick Demarchelier. This autumn the storied Italian house is launching its own signature makeup line that includes over 200 products, a selection of which are used to great effect by Pat McGrath for the story. Working closely with Gucci creative director Frida Giannini, McGrath helped develop the line which even includes a lipstick shade that underwent 75 different iterations before it was met with satisfaction. “The iconic colors are really the colors Frida loved,” explained McGrath, which is clearly evident painted on the porcelain-like Ola.
