Alessandro Michele has said that he wanted the Parthenon in Athens for his Gucci Cruise show. ''At the beginning, everything started in the Mediterranean, the Greek and Roman cultures,'' he explained. ''But we couldn’t have Athens, so I went to the next big step in civilisation, the Renaissance, so we came here to Florence, the fascinating metropolis of the past.''
The location didn't bother Elton, David Furnish, and Dakota Johnson, who were spotted in the front row, at the Palatine gallery of the Palazzo Pitti.
Also in attendance at the fashion show were Jared Leto, Donald Glover, and Salma Hayek.
Afterwards, Elton posted on his Instagram page: ''I love you Alessandro. You are a revolutionary genius.''
