San Francisco’s Union Square now has a brand new Gucci boutique. The store opening was celebrated last week followed by a private party and dinner benefiting the San Francisco Film Society and the San Francisco International Film Festival.
WWD was able to chat with a few of the guests including Karen Caufield who arrived in the newest boho chic Gucci number trimmed with brass grommets, lashings of gold metal fringe, and shiny gold chain epaulettes and she’s quoted as saying that she loved her dress, but had a nerve-racking fashion moment when it set off alarms all over the airport.
Vanessa Getty wore Gucci’s vertiginous platforms and jeweled dress and said that she was happy to attend the event since, with her newborn child, the chance to get dolled up was a rare treat.
The other attendees included Kamala Harris, Connie Nielsen, Juliet de Baubigny, Sloan Barnett, Marcy Carmack, Jennifer Biederbeck, and Angelique Griepp.
