Claire Danes takes over from Drew Barrymore at Gucci Jewellery

Claire Danes has never fronted a high end advertising campaign, but all that is about to change with the Romeo & Juliet actress taking over from Drew Barrymore as the face of Gucci Jewellery.

“Claire Danes is a modern icon and one of the most interesting young actresses on the international scene. Claire’s sensual, confident beauty and her passionate, independent and strong character embodies today’s Gucci woman,” said Gucci creative director Frida Giannini.

Danes is equally as excited, saying: “Frida is a very inspiring and creative woman. Her vision is extraordinary and I am excited to be a part of it.”

Photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin the campaign is due to break this fall.
