Trust Gucci to pull it well and truly out of the (designer) bag at the brand's latest fashion show in Los Angeles.

Jared Leto - a longtime fan of the brand, who will also star in the upcoming film House of Gucci - and Macaulay Culkin were among the models who strode down the Walk of Fame runway at the Gucci Love Parade, which shut down a few blocks of Hollywood Boulevard.

Also seen making an appearance on the catwalk were Jodie Turner-Smith, St Vincent and Phoebe Bridgers.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Serena Williams sat front row to see Alessandro Michele's nostalgic, old-Hollywood-inspired designs swish past.

They were joined on the pavement seats by the likes of Salma Hayek, Lizzo, Miley Cyrus, Tracee Ellis Ross and James Corden - so basically, everyone who's anyone in LA.

The clothes were typical, over-the-top Gucci, and included cowboy hats, crop tops, feathered gowns, fur coats and diamond tiaras in shades of lavender, teal and bright pink, along with metallics and chunky, silver platform shoes.

In a welcome addition to the runway, the show also featured small to plus-size models.

'I think with fashion, you have a duty to give a voice,' Michele, the creative director of Gucci, said after the show. 'I see beauty everywhere. It’s something which is organic and natural.'

In the show notes, Michele expanded on the inspiration for the show, referencing his mother, who had worked as an assistant in a film production company and told him stories about Hollywood as a child.

'There was the alabaster paleness of Marilyn Monroe…There were the black satin gloves of Rita Hayworth and Veronica Lake’s velvet hair, as well as the bewitching allure of Rock Hudson and Kim Novak’s dizzying transformative power. Everything felt like a fairy tale.'

'Los Angeles shines in its own magic,' said Michele, 'which is timeless; it’s a place that brushes the divinities, becoming a mythology of the possible.'

Magic? We'd say that sounds pretty apt for this spectacle.
