Gucci ad, or “Mommie Dearest” 2.0?
The 77-year-old Oscar winner also stars in an accompanying short film shot by Petra Collins, in which Dunaway plays a “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”-caliber lady of leisure.
The glamorous character “spends her days being ferried around in a chauffeur-driven limo, signing autographs, shopping on Rodeo Drive, lounging poolside, playing tennis and living a life of luxurious leisure,” as described in a Gucci press release — all while clad in head-to-toe looks from the Italian brand, of course.
At the end of the ad, Dunaway’s character presents her daughter (played by French singer/actress Soko) with a Sylvie bag of her very own, “a symbolic gift to treasure across generations.”
Sure beats getting a wire hanger.
