Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark actor Reeve Carney web-slinged his dashing good looks and suave sensibilities into Tom Ford's Gucci loafers in a small role as the fashion superstar who became the brand's creative director — and changed the course of the company for the better — in 1994.

No one oozes Italian excellence like Oscar winner Sophia Loren, but jaw-dropping Romanian model Mãdãlina Ghenea pays dutiful tribute to the silver screen legend during her brief appearance alongside Aldo Gucci (Al Pacino) outside one of the brand's marquee stores.

Following his breakup with Patrizia, Maurizio enters a new phase of business as the head of Gucci, drawing global attention from press outlets like Vogue. There's a short scene that sees Ireland-born actress Catherine Walker (Leap Year, Shetland) donning the signature bob and dark sunglasses of the publication's domineering editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, while she interviews Maurizio about the progressive tactics he uses to carry the label into the '90s. A giddy André Leon Talley — who served many positions at Vogue, including as news director and creative director — can be seen in the background of the scene, listening intently as Wintour praises Maurizio's vision.
