Milan Fashion Week is happening right now, where Gucci’s creative director Frida Giannini presented a darkly glamorous collection for fall 2012. She filled the runway with cocktail dresses, pencil skirts, military jackets and evening gowns in rich textures like brocade, leather, feathers, and pops of rich velvet. Intricate beaded embroidery, stiletto booties, knee-high riding boots, ladylike bags, round glasses and blood-red lips rounded out the moody lineup. See our favorite looks in the gallery now.
