Check out this week's issue of the Italian Vanity Fair magazine, out now, for the worldwide preview of Dolce & Gabbana's Spring/Summer campaign featuringMadonna photographed by Steven Klein and to read what Stefano Gabbana had to say about the shooting the Icon.
"Madonna's private life is seldom out of the papers but this new Dolce & Gabbana campaign is unlike anything you have seen before" - the designer duo's official blogSwide.com writes about the preview. "Exit the paparazzo, these shots by Steven Klein reveal much more than a grainy stolen picture, they showcase an intimate, real aspect to the ultimate icon's life."
"In keeping with Dolce & Gabbana's Spring/Summer 2010 collection's emphasis on Mediterranean heritage and classic Italian sensuality, the mood isn't unlike a film from the days of Italian Neorealism. Madonna herself recalls the strong, raw sensuality of the iconic actress Anna Magnani - showcasing when soft sensuality meets bold authenticity."
"In the Vanity Fair Italy feature, Stefano Gabbana discusses the campaign and why Madonna was the perfect match: "She loved the collection," he says, "...she is passionate and impressively knowledgeable about Italian cinema," (Monica is Vitti her favourite actress and we see the resemblance)."
"When asked as to whether Madonna knows how to wash dishes, Stefano Gabbana replies "Certainly...she's a very practical woman..." And does she actually eat spaghetti despite her most enviable figure? "Of course, says Stefano, and she can allow herself to with all the exercise she does!"
