In a show featuring colour, feathers, facial jewellery and plenty of celebrity faces, Alessandro Michele, the creative director of Gucci, presented a nostalgic line with inspirations taken from old Hollywood.
The show on Tuesday evening attracted large crowds causing the event to shut down a few blocks of the busy Hollywood Boulevard, giving the models enough room to strut out of the iconic TCL Chinese Theatre.
The spectacle included appearances both on and off the catwalk.
Jared Leto and Macaulay Culkin took centre stage modelling pieces from the new line.
And Gwyneth Paltrow and Serena Williams were among those spotted on the converted front row.

Feathered gowns, faux fur coats, diamond tiaras, crop tops, wide leg trousers and voluminous dresses all featured in the show,highlighting the Italian designer’s love for old cinematic wardrobes.
Models were seen wearing chunky silver platform shoes, patent leather flats and white pointy boots – with several outfits utilising face jewellery around the nose and cheekbones.
Colour formed a key part of the show with lavender, teal and hot pink suits along with metallic and gold gowns all making an appearance.

Star of the upcoming film House of Gucci, Jared Leto hit the catwalk in an oversized double breasted blazer with no shirt, laced leather white trousers and white boots – to applause from the crowd.
Culkin’s attire continued the trend as he wore a colourful jacket with a blue Hawaiian-styled shirt, brown trousers and a white Gucci belt.
The more size inclusive show saw models ranging from small to plus size grace the catwalk.
“I think with fashion, you have a duty to give a voice,” Michele said after the show. “I see beauty everywhere. It’s something which is organic and natural.”
