Madonna Stars in “Sequel” Ads for Dolce & GabbanaJul 6, 2010 @ 11:23 am
Madonna newest set of advertisements for Dolce & Gabbana were revealed and designer Stefano Gabbana describes the evocative black-and-white images as a kind of sequel to Madonna’s Spring/Summer campaign for the Italian label. This is “the second half of the movie,” he told WWD. “We wanted to continue pushing our current message that show’s fashion’s more human nature, and our heritage.” The Fall/Winter ads follow the star—clad in ample quantities of black lace—as she shops for groceries, shares what WWD calls “an intimate moment in the bedroom with her newborn daughter,” and waits while an older woman alters the hem of her skirt. “We believe that the campaign is comforting and that people will somehow identify themselves in the images, which again display a more human and approachable side of Madonna,” Gabbano explains. We love the way that the star looks—her ensemble is almost like an updated version of the lace-heavy outfits she wore back in her “Lucky Star” days. What do you think?
