    I like how you caught them all from behind like this. Makes for rather mysterious portraits and silhouettes.

    You perfectly captured both the demure femininity of the ruffles and the strength of the simplicity and clean lines of those garments.

    I live for jewel tones and rich colors like this…. feels good to see them for spring too! I am always in black or navy or bordeaux or bottle green, and feel like they are hard to come by in spring time…. and a challenge to keep a consistent wardrobe through the seasons.

    The navy is amazing.

    These photos are stunning, however the model in the pink dress and black dress are both waaay too skinny! It makes me sad that this has become accepted in todays society.

    • Rae

      I’m so glad someone else was thinking this. I couldn’t focus on the beauty of the dress because I was looking at all of the lumps and bumps in the models spinal column. The body contour of the model in the white dress was much more appealing. Skin over muscle is so much better than skin over bones.

    Love the drama of these silhouettes, especially with the stride happening in the emerald gown.

    • Sarah L

      September 20, 2012 at 7:36 am

      Incredible, stunning shots & gorgeous designs, but most of my focus was taken away from all the beauty of the designs to make room for wild concern for the models.

  20. Realist

    September 20, 2012 at 12:12 am

    Beautiful dresses, but sadly too thin models! It was hard to appreciate beauty with the protruding spines. Not sexy at all. Sad that our society sees that as acceptable.

    • elxoxodetuprima

      September 21, 2012 at 6:22 pm

      What is REALLY sad is some people like you not accepting other people´s body .

  21. Willy

    September 20, 2012 at 12:15 am

    To be honest, I do not like at all these bones-laid-bare backs!
    Ok, I agree with you, Megan, that these outfits might well look great on Rihanna! But, bear in mind that her back is more … appealing. To my taste, these outfits would look better with – yes – tall, though, less skinny ladies! Sorry, for being so blunt!

    The pictures are beautiful, but there’s something to be said about how skinny the models are. I’m all for looking wonderful, and being thin – but the last one looks like a spokesperson for a thinspiration site. Definitely haunting images for any young woman struggling with body issues.

  25. Daiana

    September 20, 2012 at 1:03 am

    Love the dresses and the subtlety of the photos.

    Hate those skinny bony backs. Things like that on the runway make me really sad.

    These dresses are truly remarkable. They are beautiful, sexy pieces of art. However, I am not able to fully concentrate on their craftsmanship because I am distracted by all of the spine action going on.

    • elxoxodetuprima

      September 21, 2012 at 6:25 pm

      when you go a museum you pay attention on the pictures or on the frames ? the model´s bodies are not there to be scrutinized. A fashion show is about , you know , CLOTHES.

    The designs are crazy! I never see people wear these except in runways and fashion competitions. Where are these kind of clothes worn? During dinner, at night parties or just in runways for competitions?

    I really love this series simply because we rarely ever get to see the back of an outfit on the runway shots, so this is refreshing.

  33. Becca

    September 20, 2012 at 1:21 am

    Well Gucci just blew the “matchy-matchy” criticism out of the water!

    These photos are wonderful- fashion because you can see the back of the dresses, but so artistic at the same time.

    The dresses and the photography are stunning, no doubt about that.

    The amount of bone I can see, however, is worrying.

    Interesting, how all of you sees the beauty of colors and dresses, but can’t see the disgust of bodies. maybe, it’s just the light and etc, but do you really think, that these are the bodies of glowing young women? specially, when you look at their backs and their bones can be literally seen through their skin?

    but, in any case, the dresses and shoes are marvelous!

    September 20, 2012 at 4:13 am

    rather disappointed here, I find the zips ungracious in #1 and #2 and the overal lacks fit where it should need and stress were it should be amplified to give more volume. The stitching work of the ruffles on #3 one are very poor. In the last one, you shouldn’t have cut the heel… I’m usually a big fan of your street work and even here your images are excellent at showing the weaknesses of even the big names…

  60. J

    September 20, 2012 at 4:26 am

    The photographs are powerful in the crisp contrast of lights and shadows, but also in how the imperfect eroticisms of these women’s bodies are portrayed. A nimbus of arm hair; a small, attenuated tattoo; shocking spinal columns sinking into and pressing up under skin; the way a shoe does not quite, for a moment, fit to the foot; a vaccine scar; goosebumps; the way muscle shifts under skin before the skin follows–all juxtaposed with the sharp symmetry of posture and the entangled counter-movement of those rich, awkward fabrics around the backs of legs. And the repetition of similar poses is powerful too, suggesting that the women have only just noticed the spectators obscured in the background–and that the viewer has yet to be noticed and is seeing something rather private.

    Stunning photographs!
    And the dresses shapes… unbelievable how they work with the body movement!!


  62. Best shot? The one bathed in Red...

    September 20, 2012 at 4:34 am

    The back shot of the lady in red is just the sexiest of the lot.

    While we could barely make out the contours of her right leg, a shadow of the full right leg is cast on the front of the dress. Wayang Kulit Redux, the sultry edition.

    I see her glowering and facing down her opponent; her posture projects strength.

    On a more personal note, I am disturbed that commentators here seem to think it alright to put someone who is thin down. This is rude. I struggled with some weight issues years ago but have since lost the pounds (some 20 pounds worth) over the past few years through eating sensibly and frequent exercise (brisk walking). I never once blamed models for making me look bad. You wouldn’t be able to see the notches on my spine, not now or ever. But that’s fine by me. Can’t we all get along?

    • une chatte grise

      September 20, 2012 at 2:18 pm

      No one is, I believe, insulting or disrespecting the models or thin people. Quite the contrary. One can express concern that the women in these photos are extremely, and therefore may be unhealthily, thin without dissing the women themselves. Similarly, one can be concerned that the fashion industry has, historically, often pressured models into maintaining unhealthily low weights and tended to present extreme thinness as the “best & only” vision of beauty without disparaging the models themselves. And one can be concerned about the images and messages circulating in culture without assuming that people are helpless in the face of them or “blaming” them for body issues, which, as we know, are extremely complex.

      • Agree to disagree

        September 21, 2012 at 4:57 am

        Your argument is disingenuous: “concern” is expressed when phrases like “disgust of bodies” are bandied about?

        That said, SOME of the commentators here may be genuinely concerned about the health of these ladies here; it is totally possible that I missed those positive vibrations totally. That wasn’t deliberate, though.

        Peace, people.

        • elxoxodetuprima

          September 21, 2012 at 6:31 pm

          if people were REALLY concerned they should draw their attention for those who are starving in Africa and NOT on women who made a conscient DECISION for being thin.

          • dunj

            September 23, 2012 at 11:45 am

            bringing africa into a conversation about weight really bugs me. have you ever really thought about that argument? that has nothing to do with anything.
            about the comments – some people don’t know how to express themselves and some are just plain inconsiderate. but I agree with une chatte grise, there is a reason these women are skinny and it is unrealistic to think it’s their own choice. designers just prefer hangers over real people because they pose a challenge in a design – to make an x number of dresses fitted for each model is hard work and few are willing to do it. so the skinnier the model, higher are her chances of getting the job. but there is skinny and there is super skinny. if a designer chooses extremely skinny models, that’s represents a statement that, as any that promotes the extreme, is detrimental in our culture, so obsessed by weight and body image and I think it’s important to say this out loud. it is not about the models, it is about an industry that creates trends, that being gucci in this particular case.

  63. roelien

    September 20, 2012 at 4:54 am

    the pretty volants, fabrics, colours make for dramatic photos. but because of the overtly ‘sexy’ high slits these dresses are a bit obscene to me, and slightly ridiculous – they’re almost aprons!

    September 20, 2012 at 5:51 am

    Exquisite photos, exquisite dresses, but I can’t help but agree with all those before me that the skeletal frames spoil the sumptuousness of the dresses. One can’t help wonder why they didn’t check the models backs when casting for the show. Wouldn’t a subtly toned back be so much sexier?

  70. Nomadic D

    September 20, 2012 at 6:33 am

    I’m glad I’m not the only one thinking (and saying) this: the models are so disturbingly skinny that I cannot even look at the dresses. Honestly, I’m not generally an anti-thin-model person, but I’ve just never been confronted with images where it’s so shockingly apparent. I’m sure the dresses are lovely, but the protruding bones and lack of softness just made my stomach sink.

    September 20, 2012 at 8:42 pm

    Hmmm, the dresses are beautiful, nice shots, etc….but all is overshadowed by the unhealthy bone protrusions of the spine. Doctors diagnose underweight, unhealthy or ill people with bones like this.

    Yeah, yeah, plenty of models (and regular people) are naturally skinny or lean, but if they eat healthily, they just don’t look like they’re starving. If one wants to use naturally thin but healthy models, well fine.

    But the starvation look’s gotta go man. That so-called edgy value is taking away from the beauty of the clothes.

    (Note: not all of the models in your runway or street shots look unhealthy. But some really do).

  106. Emilie B

    September 20, 2012 at 8:50 pm

    These dresses are SUBLIME. They have a great classic feel, but an amazing pure, sleek, modern cut. It seems to me they will never really be out of style. The shots show this in a perfect way.

  107. wgiceman

    September 20, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    These are all very nice, but there is something about the pose and the lighting of the white dress that is a definite turn on!!! Just totally sexy, in a very elegant and classy way.

    Yes yes and yes. Shades of early Givenchy. But not forgiving at all. Short curvy women need not apply. ( and personally I like short curvy women, but that is another story )

    I love your photographs. The clothes are very beautiful, but you truly captured the beauty in the clothes with your photos. It is different watching the looks through video and through your photographs. Thank you for sharing they are truly a work of art!

    I love that I can see the inside of the skirt on the red and green dresses, and that the white one is so beautifully illuminated. The photo of the green dress captures movement so perfectly. That fabric makes my mouth water.

    these photos feel so surreal, the last 3 especially. the models, faceless, seem frozen in a moment of hesitation or surprise. truly lovely
