Gucci Icon

Remember back in November I posted about Project X? Well, last week was the reveal of the project. This might not be news to some of you, but I'm sharing it anyways. So Ladies and gents, I'm excited to announce that Gucci, in collaboration with Canvas magazine, have chosen yours truly as one of its icons. Yup! That's me in the photo above! When the hunter becomes the hunted...

To mark the opening of of the new Gucci store in Kuwait, Canvas searched for icons in Kuwaiti Society who embody the brand's values. And selected them to be included in Icons for Icons, a coffee table book where talented Kuwaities in various creative fields are profiled, dressed in Gucci's iconic signature pieces, and photographed by jewelry designer Nadine Kanso. As a fashion blogger, I must say that I'm extremely flattered to be selected as an icon and to be among such great talents and inspiring people. Some of the photos that were taken are currently on display at the store.

The Gucci and Canvas team hosted a private event at the store to celebrate the completion of Icons for Icons. Below you will find highlights of the event, and I'll be sharing more photos in another post too.

During the event, I came to know about Gucci's Première Collection of couture gowns, a line that you won't find on Style.com or on the runway, or even casually displayed in store. The couture gowns would be sold by appointment and used to dress top celebrities for big red carpet occasions. If you go to Gucci store today, you will find the actual gowns that were worn by Hillary Swank, Kate Beckinsale, and Jessica Alba. The pale lilac embroidered silk gown with crystals featured here, was Alba's gown, my god how tiny her waist is!!

Antique white embroidered silk georgette gown with silver micro beading and metallic thred which was created for and worn by Kate Beckinsale.

Nadine Kanso's designed Bil Arabi ring was worn by one of the guests

And of course the always elegant  Nadine Kanso was wearing a gorgeous pair of earring, her design bein sur.

The embellishment is amazing!! Remember when I posted last year about Gucci's sample dress which I so badly wanted to fit in for the photoshoot?

Now how cool is this men's bow tie??!!
