Those Sicilian boys have some friends in high places. Not content with setting the world alight with their fashion threads, Dolce and Gabbana are fierce collaborators with some of Pop’s greatest stars.
In her biggest tour to date the ‘Aphrodite – Les Folies’ World Tour, Kylie Minogue has teamed up with D&G to design all her costumes. With Greek mythology as the inspiration, the Sicilian duo have created a mythical tour wardrobe fit for a (pop) princess. In addition to their work with the diminutive Aussie singer, they also joined forces with the Queen of pop, Madonna, last year to create a line of stunning D&G sunglasses. The designers have been friends with Madonna since the early Nineties, when they created all the costumes for her ‘Girlie Show Tour’ – however this is the first time Madonna has become involved in their creative process. Their collaborative line of sunnies are called MDG sunglasses and have been received well by both the critics and the public. The MDG range for D&G is a sophisticated collection of largely oversized sunglasses in varying prints and shapes, which wouldn’t look out of place on the riviera… or the Milanese catwalk….
Coming on to the Milanese catwalk – The Fashion Week spectacle has now seamlessly moved on to Milan and over the next few days the very best of Italian designers will be strutting their stuff at Milan Fashion Week. Naturally Dolce & Gabbana will be there along with the likes of Armani, Gucci, Maxmara, Prada and Versace to name a few.
D&G are showing on Sunday ahead of the 2011 Oscars Ceremony. It’s always a closely guarded secret which designers are dressing which stars for the red carpet at the Oscars, but there are sure to be a few D&G dresses on the night. D&G has always been synonymous with a laid back sexy kind of design, but they can really rev it up for the red carpet. Halle Berry is a big fan of D&G, as are Jennifer Aniston and Anne Hathaway. However it remains to be seen whether the designer duo have collaborated with any Hollywood stars for this years Academy Awards… watch this space!

It won’t have escaped your attention that Madonna has become the latest poster girl for Dolce & Gabbana. In a series of black and white stills, shot in an Italian neo-realism style, a glamorously suburban Madonna goes about ‘her’ household chores, all the while modelling D&G’s 2010 Spring Collection.
D&G’s latest collection is a whimsical return to their Sicilian roots. Although the designers have been friends with Madonna for over 2 decades, it is Madge’s Italian heritage, rather than her friendship with the duo, that led to her fronting their latest campaign.
According to Dolce & Gabbana, Madonna ‘embodies the strong sensuality of the brand’ and we’re inclined to agree. Famed for her strong feminine looks, her sexuality and vibrant style, Miss Ciccone strikes us as a perfect brand ambassador for D&G.
Whilst any item from the D&G Spring collection is sure to burn a hole in your pocket, D&G style is easily replicated. A sexy high street pencil skirt and bustier can be accessorised with a gorgeous pair of genuine Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses, for a quarter of the price. D&G sunglasses can be bought for as little as £80 at Shade Station and as we all know it’s the accessories that really make an outfit! With a massive selection of stunning D&G sunglasses and most of them new styles, Shade Station are making it a doddle to imitate fashion’s most talked about material girl!
