“Rocky, Garner, and Page personify an ode to self-acceptance, friendship and love in all its forms through a story of tenderness, imagination, and curiosity,” states Gucci’s press release.
Gucci Guilty has been a signature fragrance on the Gucci Beauty portfolio since 2010, with the full release of the new campaign coming on March 1 – mark your calendars!
The announcement comes less than three months after the Umbrella Academy star revealed the cover of his highly anticipated memoir, which will be released on June 6.
“Writing a book has come up a few times over the years, but it never felt right and quite frankly, it didn’t feel possible. I could barely sit still, let alone focus long enough to complete such a task. At last, I can be with myself, in this body,” said Page via an Instagram post.
