Even the housewives on Bravo never looked this good while performing their mundane tasks, but Stefano Gabbana maintains that the down-to-earth quality of the ordinary woman was the inspiration for the fall Dolce & Gabbana ads featuring Madonna. The images, which were shot by Steven Klein in Harlem, were inspired by the Italian classic film “Mamma Roma” and continue the story of Madonna’s spring ads with the fashion house. “We wanted to continue pushing our current message that shows fashion’s more human nature and our heritage. This is yet another tassel of that mosaic,” said Gabbana. “We believe the campaign is comforting and that people will somehow identify themselves in the images, which again display a more human and approachable side of Madonna,” he added. In the ads, Madonna has a strange moment with a baby, wrangles some chickens, has a skirt hemmed, and goes grocery shopping — all while looking quite extraordinary thanks to the power of designer fashions, great photography, and Photoshop.

Jak & Jil photographer blogger Tommy Ton was in Milan covering the menswear shows for Style.com and captured all the male model hottttieeesss who walked in the Dolce & Gabbana runway show on the streets as they were leaving the venue. I say, DAYUM. Today’s lesson: It is hard to type and wipe the drool off your chin at the same time. I don’t know who this glum-looking Clark Kent is, but please send one, stat. Check out more fly boys at Jak & Jil. [Jak & Jil] Keep reading »
Frankly, I don’t really care that much one way or the other about the latest season of menswear from Dolce & Gabbana, but when it comes to their ad campaigns, suffice to say, I like to keep a close eye on the latest. Thankfully, the fall 2010 series are no different: they feature totally hot guys sometimes in their underwear. Really, there is not a lot more in life that a woman can ask for, is there? If you’d like to soften your desire to objectify the opposite sex, the men you see here are named Sam Webb, Adam Senn, Arthur Kulkov, Evandro Soldati, and Noah Mills, who’s that hot dude from “Sex and the City 2.” If you want to see more of the boys getting all sartorial, Fashionisto has the rest.

Is it ever too early in the day to watch male dancers grapple in a Dolce & Gabbana video? We thinks not. Starring scantily clad dancers from the Rambert Dance Company, this fashion spot for Wonderland
magazine is easy on the eyes, indeed. For a moment, I wondered what their names are, but then I remembered it doesn’t really matter. [Fashin

We’d love to give our sad drawer full of worn-out granny panties a designer makeover, but that would be fairly expensive. Thank God for online outlet stores, where we can find gorgeous, silk floral briefs that originally cost $130 at a fraction of the price. These aren’t just pretty and comfy-looking; no one would kick them out of bed, that’s for sure.
Ah, Madonna. So elusive. So enigmatic. So impenetrable. If only she weren’t wearing those dark sunglasses all the time! Then maybe we would know her. Or perhaps not. If you want to throw shade like the Material Girl, you can now, thanks to the fact that Miss M and Dolce & Gabbana are collaborating on a line of sunglasses. The brand-within-a-brand will be called MDG (which sort of sounds like a gyno office, but whatever), the shades will go for $248 to $289 a pair, and the sexy campaign was shot by Steven Klein (natch). “[Madonna] is very exacting and a professional who seeks perfection in everything she does, and this was no exception,” spews Stefano Gabbana. But will wearing them make you super famous? Maybe. [WWD] Keep reading »
