British singer Florence Welch has been named as the new face of Gucci! The couture-wearing, Mulberry-toting stylista was seen all over the front rows at Paris Fashion Week and we love how she manages to look as at home in silk short shorts as she does in dramatic haute couture dresses. Gucci's creative director Frida Giannini spoke of her choice, also saying the singer inspired her 2011 Fall collection.
"As I was imagining this collection I was thinking of a strong and somewhat mysterious muse. Florence is that kind of woman . . . I met her in Los Angeles at this year's Grammys and was captivated by her presence. She has a powerful personality and an entrancing quality to her performances. She also has that confident and self-assured look that goes hand in hand with the Gucci woman."
Considering the previous Gucci faces include Rihanna, Mark Ronson and James Franco, we thought we'd take a look back through Flo's fashion CV — check out her stylish looks featuring Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel and, of course, Gucci.
