Why is Alessandro Michele leaving Gucci?

According to Womenswear Daily, Alessandro Michele decided to step down from his position after he failed to meet the company’s request to ‘initiate a strong design shift.’

Moreover, the report stated that Gucci’s parent Kering’s chairman, Francois-Henri Pinault was looking to revamp the fashion house.

Besides that, Michele led Gucci campaigns for celebrities such as Dakota Johnson, Harry Styles, and Lana Del Ray. In addition, he dressed Billie Eilish, Florence Welch, Jared Leto, and the Italian rock band Maneskin.

In the meantime, Kering is yet to unveil Michele’s replacement but did hint that new changes lie ahead in the future of the fashion house.

Aubrey O’Day slammed her then-boyfriend Pauly D for the way he treated her during their brief relationship.

The former Danity Kane stated, ‘I went to Bali. I was able to heal and have such an incredible experience, and now I feel ready to talk a bit more about the things I’ve been through in life since everybody likes to report about them incorrectly.’
