Shifting Gears - Gucci S/S 2014

Casting duo Barbara Nicoli and Leila Ananna shifted gears for Day 1. of Milan Fashion Week, bringing out modelling's biggest names in addition to some surprising casting choices for Gucci's Spring/Summer 2014 line-up. Supermodels Anja Rubik, Karmen Pedaru, Joan Smalls, and Kasia Struss strode Gucci's runway however current Fall/Winter 2013 campaign star Abbey Lee Kershaw was a no show. Nicoli and Ananna opted instead to shine the spotlight on a trio of newcomers who it seems may now be in contention for Top 10 Newcomers lists for the Spring/Summer 2014 season. Twenty-three year old Brazilian bombshell Amanda Wellsh finally hits pay dirt, crossing over from commercial modelling to the high fashion arena holding by opening and closing for the iconic Italian design house. One Management's Kai Newman is the latest modelling export to come out of Jamaica, adding Gucci to an impeccable show list that includes appearances at Calvin Klein, Rodarte, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Y-3, Tommy Hilfiger, and Alberta Ferretti. IMG's Polish beauty Natalia Siodmak exuded a relatable sophistication throughout her appearances at Alexander Wang, Derek Lam, Marc Jacobs, Christopher Kane, Giles, and Gucci. Most surprisingly, in a distinct departure from Gucci's clone-like glamazons, Nicoli and Ananna enlisted versatile catwalkers Julia Nobis, Fei Fei Sun, Vanessa Axente, and Liu Wen to imbue Gucci with a more relatable and globally accessible aesthetic. Rounding out the cast are current models of the moment Sasha Luss, Joséphine Le Tutour, Katya Riabinkina, Andreea Diaconu, and Elisabeth Erm.
