In spite of the boot-shaped country’s bleak economic situation and the closure of the D&G range we want to shout La Bella Italia when seeing the spring/summer 2012 collection by Dolce & Gabbana. The designer duo were definitely showing patriotism on Sunday as they sent models down the catwalk wearing earrings in the shape of pasta and prints depicting tomatoes and peppers, but look at the beauty.
Reminiscent of the Carnivale, the runway was lit up by multicoloured fairy lights as the models cascaded down in gorgeous summer wear that brought your mind to the Riviera and Capri in the 50’s and Italian screen goddess Sophia Loren.
Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson – who has lent her famous silhouette for several D&G ads – happily posed for the cameras in a beautiful nude coloured dress prior to the show.
