Baby dragon gets carried down the Gucci catwalk Khaleesi-style

Baby dragon gets carried down the Gucci catwalk Khaleesi-style”

At Milan Fashion Week, Gucci was serving Game of Thrones realness in its Fall/Winter show.

Gucci might be the hottest brand in the world, which means that its favorite maximalist trends -all-over prints, endless logos, animal iconography, embroidery-trickle down to the rest of the fashion world.

Designed by Alessandro Michele for Gucci, the fall 2018 collection showed lovely clothes - in addition to extra "eyes" appearing on heads and hands, alongside purses created to look like the model's head.

But if multiple eyes aren't your thing, perhaps carrying a replica of your own head could show off your sense of fashion - inspired by the models who ditched handbags in favour of their faces. For a realistic feel, Gucci used materials often found in operating spaces and waiting rooms including cold plastic chairs and PVC.

Michele pulled out all the stops, sending some of the models down the runway carrying severed heads that were exact replicas of their own. Michele hired Italian techno-artisans part of Makinarium.

But it's those replica heads that stole the show, which Vogue reports took visual effect company Makinarium (which has worked with directors Ridley Scott, Vlad Marsavin and Danny Boyle) six months to create.

Gucci's Fall/Winter 2018-2019 collection was unveiled at Milan Fashion Week on Wednesday.

The male and female model walked single file behind one another during the show. Scroll down to see all the celebrities front row at Milan Fashion Week.
