When Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana hosted a party for Madonna in Milan last summer, the trio did more than just celebrate; they decided to create MDG, D&G’s first product collaboration with a celebrity. “We never plan ahead, but when the idea came up, all of us realized it was the right moment,” says Gabbana. “With the line we want to capture femininity and extreme sensuality.” That attitude was caught on film by photographer Steven Klein for the ad campaign, which features the pop icon in a steamy embrace. Says Gabbana, “The images evoke the essence of a star like Madonna: admired, chased, spied on, and adored—but never completely revealed.” Click on to see exclusive behind-the-scenes photos and a peek at the sunglasses collection.
