Emmanuelle Alt, who assumed the reins of French Vogue from Carine Roitfeld, shot Gisele for her first cover as editor-in-chief. Here's the warm, glowing cover, shot by Inez and Vinoodh, with the ever lovely Gisele in a white Dolce & Gabbana dress. Gisele has graced more than a few Vogue covers in her lifetime, so we're taking a look back at Gisele's oh-so-Vogue history.
Boy meets girl at an '80s party, and by the end of the night they're sharing clothes. That seemed to be the idea at Dolce & Gabbana, who sent out a whopping 81 looks that alternated between oversized menswear and sexy dresses. The menswear, wrought of either wool or jacquard, had a boxy silhouette a la David Byrne in his Talking Heads days. The dresses were classic Dolce sexy, many with lace, star prints, or both. At first the gender distinction was strong, but at the end of the show, sequin leggings began popping up under blazers and dresses were paired with men's oxfords. The bold colors and patterns gave the whole show an '80s pop princess vibe with a big dose of dandy.
- Trends: '80s, menswear, jacquard, lace, star prints, sheerness.
- Colors: Royal blue, pink, yellow, black, white.
- Key Looks: The lace and star-print dresses.
- Accessories: Polka-dot oxfords, heels with socks.
- Who Would Wear It: Madonna and Cyndi Lauper fans, young rocker types.
More red hotness coming your way. Selena Gomez stepped onto the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty red carpet in a fiery red Dolce & Gabbana gown that's part sexy, part Grecian. Gold earrings, a box clutch, and cutie Justin Bieber serve as her hot accessories. Do you love it or hate it?

Scarlett Johansson's lacy plum Dolce & Gabbana gown is as form-fitting as ethereal brocaded numbers generally get, and there's something distinctly Victorian about the bodice and patterning. To offset the old-fashioned look of the material, her gown has a big keyhole back opening, and Scarlett's wearing casual, deconstructed hair and burnt orange eye shadow. Do you think the combination comes together well?

The always-stylish Zoe Saldana looks amazing in a short Dolce & Gabbana dress. The lace and leopard detailing make for a perfect mix of sweet and sexy — and Zoe ups the ante with a bold, fire engine red lipstick, sultry cat-eye liner, and soft curls. She chose mango-colored suede Brian Atwood heels and accessorized with a chic camel clutch. Zoe can really do no wrong in my book, but what do you think of her red carpet ensemble?

I remember it like it was yesterday — when Dolce & Gabbana's Spring '10 models stampeded down the catwalk, I was mesmerized. One model is great, but a herd of them? Stunning. Likewise, at the TCN show at Cibeles Madrid Fashion Week yesterday, another stampede took place (top left), albeit much more modest than Dolce & Gabbana's. It might not have been as powerful in number, but it still had the same wowing effect. But not every designer is into the catwalk stampede — while it's fun to look at, it makes it harder to focus on the specific pieces. So tell me, which do you prefer — the stampede or solo strut? Vote below.
Is our love for leopard ever going to stop? Not at this rate! Dolce & Gabbana's Spring/Summer '11 collection has us drooling over the spots all over again. This has got to be the most luxurious way to wear leopard — with a delicate ivory blouse, oversize shades, black suede pumps, and large hoop earrings. Just enough sass, just enough class. Mimic this style next season . . . or if you're impatient, like me, rock it now if the weather permits!
Alessandra, Izabel, Maryna, and Isabeli Are Making Some Funny Faces in Dolce & Gabbana's Spring 2011 Ad Campaign
>> Now that the full set of Dolce & Gabbana's Spring 2011 ad campaign is out, the images together are quite something. Garance Dore noted earlier this week that both the Chloe and Valentino Spring campaigns show models who are actually smiling, and with Dolce, the models are also actually showing emotion, but of a different kind: Steven Klein captured Isabeli Fontana, Alessandra Ambrosio, Maryna Linchuk, and Izabel Goulart mid-yell in more than one image, and Alessandra goading Isabeli in another. Of course, there are the requisite sultry looks — this is Dolce & Gabbana we're talking about — but it's worth noting that models are starting to be given some freedom of expression when it comes to ads.
