Last night, Jessica Biel arrived to the premiere of Runner Runner in an ultrasleek black and white look from Dolce & Gabbana. Enhancing the menswear vibe, she accessorized her double-breasted suit and white button-up with a black briefcase-inspired Mark Cross bag. But while her shawl collar jacket and slim pants may borrow from the boys, its expert tailoring — and her choice to rock the look with a pair of heels — ensured that Biel kept the overall feeling sexy, feminine, and powerful. This is definitely a departure for Biel's red carpet style, which usually incorporates softer, feminine dresses.
Can't stop, won't stop with the crop tops! Miley Cyrus might have abandoned her signature color palette for the VMAs, but she didn't shy away from her love of skin-flashing looks. She flaunted her toned abs in yet another crop top look, this time from Dolce & Gabbana circa 1992. Her matching top and leggings were both accented by brightly colored rhinestones, and she finished it off with black platforms, a five-strand pearl bracelet, and 100 carats of Lorraine Schwartz diamonds (a necklace, earrings, and rings). It's in line with some of the looks she rocked in the "We Can't Stop" video . . . do you like?

When Dolce & Gabbana throw a party, two things are certain: the crowd will be fabulous, as will the clothing. And when the label closed Haute Couture Fashion Week with a Venetian bash at the Palazzo Pisani Moretta, the stakes were even higher. Fashion favorites like Caterina Murino, Paloma Faith, and Daisy Lowe — all pictured above — were on hand to celebrate, as were Karen Elson, Giovanna Battaglia, and Anna Dello Russo, who spared no detail for the Italian label's masquerade ball in celebration of the Alta Moda collection.
The men of the hour, Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce, got particularly into the spirit, posing with guests in full matador and jester regalia, respectively. Click through to see all the outlandishly festive party garb!
The Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2013 campaign stands out from the other Fall ads — it reads more like a piece of Italian film rather than an artistic display of the brand's latest collection. Upon further inspection, though, the world that Domenico Dolce lensed reflects the theatrical drama that characterizes Dolce & Gabbana's Fall line.
Bianca Balti, Monica Bellucci, Katie King, and Andreea Diaconu all star in these captured moments, which set the highly elaborate lace gowns, decadently embellished religious mosaic dresses, and chic tweed pieces against the histrionic reactions of the ambient characters to highlight Dolce & Gabbana's bold designs.
Women cry out, and men dressed as priests wildly gesticulate in picturesque cloisters. Others stare knowingly at the camera, conveying something almost sinister that everybody else appears to be unaware of. If anything's certain, it's that Dolce has succeeded in creating a campaign that is near impossible to look away from.
Legendary Italian designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana were sentenced to a year and eight months in prison for tax evasion on Wednesday. The case has been in and out of the courtroom for years, and the designers have always said they never ran afoul of the law. Click play above for a breakdown of the case, plus an explanation of why the designing duo probably won't end up behind bars any time soon.
An Italian judge has found designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana guilty of tax evasion, and on Wednesday sentenced both men to serve one year and eight months in prison.
Reuters reports that the designers weren't in the room when judge Antonella Brambilla handed down the decision, and they're expected to appeal their sentences — which will only add more time to a legal saga the men have been engaged in for years.
The initial charges in the case stem from the 2004 sale of their brand to a Luxembourg-based holding company called Gado, which the Italian Tax Authority claims was orchestrated to help the company avoid paying taxes on more than $1 billion worth of assets in Italy. The designers and their executives have always vehemently denied any wrongdoing.
Whether the designers or the five other members of their staff found guilty in the case will actually serve jail time remains to be seen.
A prosecutor working on the lengthy Dolce & Gabbana tax evasion case has recommended that the brand's founders be sentenced to more than two years in prison.
In his closing arguments on Wednesday, Gaetano Ruta recommended that Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana both serve two and a half years behind bars, according to WWD. Ruta has also asked that Cristiana Ruella, a Dolce & Gabbana board member, serve two and a half years and for Alfonso Dolce, Domenico's brother, and the company's finance director, Giuseppe Minoni, to serve two years each.
Ruta reportedly reserved his harshest words for the company's accountant, Luciano Patelli, who he accused of orchestrating the 2004 sale of the Dolce & Gabbana brand to a Luxembourg-based holding company called Gado. This sale, according to Italy's tax authority, helped the brand avoid more than $1 billion in taxes that they would have had to pay if the company were based in Italy.
Dolce and Gabbana, who have always denied any wrongdoing, were ordered to pay a $400 million fine this April. The designers were absolved of all wrongdoing in April 2011, but a higher court overturned that decision in November 2011, and the proceedings reopened as a criminal case.
Katy Perry went regal with the help of Dolce & Gabbana for the 2013 Met Gala in NYC tonight. She attended the event with designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana in a straight-off-the-runway Virgin Mary dress and gold crown. Katy is known for making a statement with her sartorial choices at the Met Gala, having attended the 2010 ball in a light-up gown by Cute Circuit. Always one to do something different, Katy eschewed the more literal translations of punk that other stars went for and instead gravitated toward a religious-inspired number. Weigh in on Katy's look and many more stylish stars in our 2013 Met Gala red carpet polls.
