Written By: Danielle Caswell

Hollywood is loving the stories behind all the Vintage fashion, designers and Icons. These are the original influencers that have set the standard for classic fashion or even fashion before it’s time. Fashion and style may be always changing and enhancing but without original brilliant and creative minds the industry would never be where it is now. If you want to step into the ever so loved fashion industry you have to know where it all began and the changes we have seen since then.  Netflix and Hollywood have help increase that fashion and style obsession with new shows and movies like House of Gucci starting Lady GAGA, Spencer lead by Kristen Stewart and Ewan McGregor dominating as Roy Halston in Netflix’s Halston. All examples of history in fashion and true inspirations that have paved the way for future designers and Icons.

We watch the story of Patrizia Reggiani and Maurizio Gucci and see inside their relationship and what comes of it all the while seeing what life would be like owning a fashion empire and being incredibly rich.  Receiving a 62% on the Tomatometer on rotten tomatoes. This is definitely Gaga’s biggest role yet acting beside legends Al Pacino and Jeremy Irons and also big names Salma Hayek, Jared Leto and Adam Driver.
