Brooding Beauties at Gucci

By

From the neck down, Gucci's spring 2013 collection would be the perfect wardrobe for living "the Life" on Italy's Amalfi coast. Each ensemble was a singular, vibrant jewel tone (some necklines were embellished with actual jewels) — and the ruffles! What joy! What fun! But, from the neck up, Frida Giannini told an entirely different story. Eyes were rimmed in smoky black, lips painted a sheer nude, and hair tightly (like, instant-face-lift kind of tight) pulled back into sculptural knots. The result: an "if looks could kill" look, except she's wearing a yellow, ruffly dress.
