Did you know that up until 2015 Gucci still favored white models over black models for their shows and advertising?!?!

Here’s what (or rather who) changed: creative director Alessandro Michele. From that point, the Italian luxury house then began to celebrate what they considered “outsider” beauty and included those “outsiders” with “multicultural” castings for its shows and advertising. In other words, it took an Alessandro Michele to include “the others”. Oh the systemics of the great U.S.
