This Gucci Dress Will Remind You of Your Favorite Childhood Cartoon Character
When I was in nursery school, I watched a lot of Sailor Moon. Parked up in front of the television set with a bowl full of Cap'n Crunch, watching a blonde in pigtails save the world. That was me. So you can imagine I'd recognize her red, white, and blue outfit anywhere. As I watched the Gucci runway show, waiting in anticipation as every magical Spring look strolled down the runway, I did not expect to see said outfit. I was ill-prepared, my bowl of Cap'n Crunch nowhere in sight.
But alas, Alessandro Michele designed an artsy dress that looked just like Sailor Moon's kitschy costume. It had a red silk bow, albeit tied around the waist instead of affixed to the collar. Its sleeves are basically two ear-shaped ruffles, so this look has no room for elbow-length gloves. And the Sailor Moon dress is long, so I can only see a peek of the gemstone metallic platforms that are underneath.
Even so, I'm embracing this throwback moment. I can't wait for one Gucci muse like Florence Welch or Dakota Johnson (Michelle Obama?!) to wear this number on the red carpet. I'll probably scream, "It's the Sailor Moon dress!" It will probably show up in my dreams. It will probably make me want to eat a bowl of Cap'n Crunch.
