MANILA, Philippines – Although “House of Gucci” has received much criticism from critics, there is no doubt that Lady Gaga’s crime film is the most talked about fashion flick this season.

In the film, the elegant Italian abode is the home of Aldo Gucci, patriarch of the Gucci family, played by Al Pacino no less. The grounds serve as the venue for the fashion empire’s big boss’s birthday party scenes, which primarily feature the exterior of the lakeside villa.
