Gucci’s signature horsebit, used in the fifties on a shoulder bag and then on the classic Gucci loafer, remains one of the most recognizable symbols of Gucci’s ties to the equestrian world.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
