Sienna Miller was recently seen strolling around NYC in a pair of Gucci Princetown Leather Slippers, which were one of the most talked-about pieces from Alessandro Michele’s first full runway collection for the brand. Sienna’s slippers are lined in plush kangaroo fur and feature Gucci’s signature horsebit. You can currently find these exact slippers for $995 at Gucci.

Sienna is also carrying a brick red Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag, which you can find in a lighter shade for $595 at Barneys. And if you’d like to view all the furry shoe options from Alessandro Michele’s premiere Fall 2015 collection for Gucci, we’re happy to oblige. (Warning: some are excessively furry.)

For Fall 2015, we showed you how creative director Alessandro Michele began evolving Gucci’s approachable, luxurious image to a more free-spirited one. If you headed over to PurseBlog recently, you probably noticed the very detailed handbags that hit the runway for Spring 2016, and this same aesthetic has been transferred to the brand’s footwear (and don’t worry; there were no furry shoes in sight).

This collection was inspired by the wilderness, with floral-print loafers and slithering snakes on top of the chunky-heeled mules. Some other notable styles you’ll find are t-strap platforms, lace-up pumps and a pair of very studded sandals.

These Gucci shoes may not follow the usual code of Gucci aesthetics, but it’s a change that makes sense. Check out the full collection below and tell us what you think!

2015 has been an oddly consistent year for celeb shoe selections. Single-soled offerings from Louboutin, Sophia Webster and Stuart Weitzman have proved to be particularly enticing to celebs year-round, while your more traditional summer styles like wedges and espadrilles received precious little love this year, leaving the humble Birkenstock to fulfill the celebrity’s ongoing need for casual, comfortable footwear for the third consecutive summer.

If this monogram-and-floral idea looks familiar, I’m right there with you. This collection brought me back to Louis Vuitton’s Stephen Sprouse Rose collection circa 2009.

Back in the present, Gucci recently debuted its newest collection, GG Blooms. The collection features the signature GG monogram print, layered under a special edition floral print. Gucci is under the new creative direction of Alessandro Michele, and after seeing the very furry Fall 2015 runway shoes, I didn’t know what to expect from the brand’s shoes in the near future. Now, I feel redeemed.

We’re seeing the playful and whimsical side of Gucci, and I like it (and I’ll also take basically anything over those furry shoes). Tell us in the comments what you think of Gucci’s new GG Blooms.

Salma Hayek is still hot on the press trail for her latest project, the animated feature film The Prophet, which she both produced and provided voiceover talent for. Here she is heading into an appearance on Good Morning America in a pair of maple brown Gucci Ankle Strap Leather Sandals. You can currently find Salma’s exact sandals for $660 at Gucci.

These sandals are a more subtle version of the black Gucci Rooney Suede Sandals we saw Salma wearing on the red carpet last week. Both styles have the same thick, adjustable ankle strap, and each features its own variation on Gucci’s signature horsebit detail. These sandals cost almost $200 less than the Gucci Rooneys, however.

Salma Hayek recently walked the red carpet at the premiere of Kahlil Gibran’s new animated feature film The Prophet (which she produced) in LA wearing a pair of Gucci Rooney Suede Sandals. These sandals are from the brand’s new Fall 2015 collection. In case you didn’t notice, that bold bit of silver hardware is actually an enlarged, flattened version of Gucci’s signature horsebit. You can currently find Salma’s exact sandals for $850 at Gucci.

We can’t talk about Salma and her designer wares without mentioning that her husband François-Henri Pinault is the CEO of Kering, a luxury goods holding company with a stake in Gucci, Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga and many other brands you know and love. It’s a pretty sweet hookup.

Shoes: Shoe of the Week:Gucci Leather and Suede Sandals


Why It’s the Shoe of the Week: These Gucci sandals are totally worth the splurge; they fit with the season’s 70s trends, but they’re modern enough to outlast them.

A couple of months ago, creative director Frida Giannini suddenly left Gucci after almost a decade with the brand, and for Fall 2015, the collection was under the new direction of Alessandro Michele. During Giannini’s tenure, Gucci was often very wearable and approachable; it was definitely luxurious, and at times, it skewed a little safe. Clearly, Michele is looking to change that impression.

It was a very youthful and free-spirited Gucci that hit the runway a few days ago, and nothing says this more than the collection’s footwear. You’ll see loafers with a gamine charm and fully fur-covered shoes that reminded me a lot of Rochas and Cèline shoes from runways past. This bohemian-inspired collection certainly turned heads in Milan, but nothing caught our attention more than the irreverent footwear.
