American model Arizona Muse demands attention in this spread from last month's Paris Vogue, adorned with nothing but the Gucci handbags we’ve all come to know and love. In celebration of the design house's 90th anniversary, photographer Mario Sorrenti captured the truly timeless beauty of their purses in the aptly named Forever Young editorial. Keeping Miss Muse in the buff was assumingly so the reader's focus wasn't distracted from the bags' designs, although I can't help but feel that his logic might have worked against him a little. Call me crazy, but the very first thing I notice when I turn the page is the very naked lady draped across it...and I LOVE bags. It’s only after the initial rush and blush that I enjoy the thrill I always get when coming across the vintage-like Gucci of the season. So Luxuca puts the question to all you designer handbag enthusiasts: what catches your attention, the purse or the girl? Exposed, or over-exposed?
