Let’s be honest, fashion is not always glitz and glamour. It can be messy, scary and downright hilarious. 

It seems like memes have joined the fashion party, thanks to the creative director of Gucci, Alessandro Michele. The Italian fashion designer recruited meme-makers last year to assist with his ad campaigns.

Michelle Obama

The former First Lady of the U.S. Michelle Obama, found herself an internet meme after she wore $4000 (R 58,202.70) sparkly thigh boots to a media interview.

The boots wowed the internet and went viral, and that almost always means ‘incoming meme’. We certainly wouldn’t mind stepping into 2019 in the fancy iridescent boots by Balenciaga.
