TENNIS TWOSOME: Serena Williams, sitting next to Anna Wintour, was eager to take in Alessandro Michele’s designs for Gucci. “It’s the first time. I’m looking forward to it,” she said.
The tennis champion said she was in Milan to attend other shows. She is also in town to play for the Djokovic & Friends charity tournament.
“We are working on a movie just outside Milan,” said Dakota Johnson, pointing at film director Luca Guadagnino, who was seated next to her.
“We can tell the title: ‘Suspiria,’” said Guadagnino, adding that they will start filming in about two months.
American actress Makenzie Leigh, who flew to Milan just to attend the Gucci show, is having a break from work. “Someone hire me,” she said with a laugh. “I’m always up for everything, this is the story of every actress’ life.”
Someone else in the front row expects a busy month: Demna Gvasalia.
“It’s rare that I go to shows, actually it’s the first time,” said the founder of Vetements and creative director of Balenciaga, who will have to work on two shows over the next few weeks.
