It might seem odd that Dolce & Gabbana would hitch its brand to the Kardashian wagon, especially considering designers Stefano and Domenico Dolce once called the family “the cheapest people in the world.”
But Kim K proved to be a loyal customer when she wore a custom gold-embellished corset-style dress for her private performance at Dubai’s new six-star hotel opening. Other big names who stunned in Dolce included singer Saweetie and actress Emma Roberts.
Mariah Carey may be 53, but she still knows how to stunt! The singer stepped out in an incredible embroidered Dolce dress at the Alta Moda fashion show in Sicily.
She was joined by her children and husband, Russell Wilson. Ciara wore a stunning gold lame lace gown embellished with metal and embroidered sacred hearts, while her NFL quarterback husband rocked a white suit with a shawl lapel and bowtie. Actresses Drew Barrymore and Dame Helen Mirren were also in attendance. Drew opted for a pink pleated dress with sculptural floral sleeves, while Helen wore a gold-striped silk satin gown. They all looked stunning posing for photos.
Known for her feminine silhouettes, Drew Barrymore stunned fans with a more androgynous look when she attended the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda show in Sicily, Italy. The actress wore a lemon-colored opaque dress with flowers embroidered on the sleeves and a gold tiara on her head. She paired the look with a matching Dolce bag and appeared sans make-up.
The model was joined by singer Ciara and husband Russell Wilson, who wore Dolce looks. Singer Ciara opted for a gold ball gown that featured embroidered sacred hearts, while Wilson looked sharp in a butter-white silk tuxedo. The trio posed together in front of the cameras and fans.
Ciara Princess Harris was born in Fort Hood, Texas, on October 25, 1985. She moved around frequently because her father was a military officer, and she settled in Atlanta at age 16. She started writing songs and performed in various talent shows. She formed the girl group Hearsay with two friends, but they eventually parted ways. Ciara worked hard and finally landed a publishing deal with LaFace Records and producer Jazze Pha.
It was like a karmic message from Mother Nature when an apocalyptic hailstorm hit the Dolce & Gabbana fashion show last year. But the brand recovered from the backlash, and celebrities wore their dresses again.
