  • Claire Danes is the new face at Gucci

    Claire Danes has signed up to be the new face of Gucci’s jewellery range.

    Taking the reigns from Drew Barrymore, Danes will star in a series of print advertisements for the Italian fashion house, which will be shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.

    Gucci creative director Frida Giannini commented in a statement, ‘Claire Danes is a modern icon. For me she is one of the most interesting young actresses on the international scene. She is very natural, fresh, and has a carefree attitude which can also be seen in the roles she has chosen. Claire’s sensual, confident beauty and her passionate, independent and strong character embodies today’s Gucci woman.’

    Danes added, ‘I am thrilled and honoured to be working with Gucci on their jewellery campaign. Frida is a very inspiring and creative woman. Her vision is extraordinary and I am excited to be a part of it.’

    The actress has recently finished filming in the UK, where she has been starring in Richard Linklater’s ‘Me and Orson Welles.’
