Gucci's Frida Giannini designs Rush costumes
Gucci creative director Frida Giannini designed costumes for Chris Hemsworth and Olivia Wilde to sport in new movie 'Rush'.
Gucci creative director Frida Giannini designed costumes for Chris Hemsworth and Olivia Wilde in 'Rush'.
The fashion designer contributed bespoke pieces inspired by Gucci's archives for the A-list stars to sport in director Ron Howard's lavish new Formula One racing biopic set in the 1970s.
In the film, Chris plays British race car driver James Hunt, whose feud with fellow sportsman Niki Lauda - played by Daniel Bruhl - captivated motoring fans during the 1976 racing season. Meanwhile, Olivia plays his label-loving supermodel wife, Suzy Miller.
Frida styled both Chris and Olivia in stunning Gucci designs which capture the glamour and spirit of the era.
She said: ''The Seventies has always been a decade that has inspired me greatly. It is hard to think of a more glamorous profession than being a racing driver in the Seventies.
''James Hunt's style is full of animal sensuality, perfectly brought out by Chris Hemsworth in the period-evoking outfits. While the style of Suzy Miller, played by Olivia Wilde, is the essence of Gucci as it captures the mixture of sexy allure and innocent naturalness that defined the style of the time.''
The movie's stunning wardrobe will also be complimented by Italian designer Salvatore Ferragamo, who created costumes for the characters of Niki Lauda (Daniel) and his wife Marlene (Alexandra Maria Lana).
