      Someone needs to give those women a steak, STAT. There is some serious emaciation happening under a lot of beautiful clothes.

      • PastryGoddess

        Uncles T and Lo have asked us not to comment on the bodies inside of the clothes

    • Karen Belgrad

      The lead model needs to work on variety in her facial expressions (especially the mouth)

      • anyalama

        “Any girl can be glamorous. All you have to do is stand still and look stupid” – Hedy Lamarr

        • DTLAFamilies

          Hedy Lamarr, complete badass and total genius Fixed that for you.

      • KateShouldBeWorking

        I’m getting a strong Patsy Stone vibe here.

        • StellaZafella

          …and Eddie just entered wearing la Croix!

        • librarygrrl64

          YES! Her grimace looks just like Patsy’s fake smiles to Saffy when she wants something. :-D

        • Darva Sutra

          YES! Bolly/Stoli everyone! Seriously love a lot of the pieces esp the purses, jewelry & tweed. WTF is going on in this shoot? We need to write a story to go along with the pictures

          • MoHub

            Except that we need to find an alternative, non-Russian vodka until the literal gay-bashing stops.

          • KateShouldBeWorking

            Judging by her face, I’d say a sewer explosion 20ft off-camera.

      • nowlo

        She does the same thing with her mouth/teeth that Jessica Pare does. It’s kind of distracting.

        • Kristin McNamara

          To me, whoever that model is looks like if Jessica Pare and Nelly Furtado had a baby. I legitimately thought it was Nelly for the first dozen photos or so…

      • annrr

        Her Blue Thunder needs less teeth

      • Funkykatt

        She needs to read Augusten Burroughs’ story about his days at Barbizon Modeling School.

      • stephbellard

        She’s baring her fangs like it means passion. Or like she’s Jessica Pare.

    • hughman

      Darling, you sip the wine at confession. You don’t grab the chalice, slug it down and then hit on the priests.

      • Lucía Gavello

        Oh Hughman, but have you SEEN those priests?

      • formerlyAnon

        Well, in an ideal world . . .

      • Monabel

        Why ever not?

    • MsOlympia

      That one model consistently looks like she’s trying so hard to make her Serious Opera Diva debut, but the stench of the peasants around her is just too much.

    • SewingSiren

      The pictures are corny as hell, but I love the clothes and would pretty much wear them all. Especially love those floral mens shoes.

    • WendyD

      As much as I loathe smoking, why do I feel like you can’t give me this much “Italian” without at least half the people smoking?

    • MilaXX

      So, none of the women can make eye contact with anyone?

    • Domo_Konnichiwa

      I want the flower shoes so bad!

      • ItsDicey

        Soooo digging those shoes.

    • Shawn EH

      What are those prostitutes doing to those altar boys?

    • bertkeeter

      I’ve seen this movie…..sad ending!

    • Tatiana Luján

      I love the concept, but what the hell is the main model doing with her mouth?

      • kimmeister

        Trying to keep the mouthful of wine she just swigged from leaking out?

        • Tatiana Luján

          That was the image I had in mind.

      • StellaZafella

        It’s the Italian for “Duck Lips”

        • annabelle archer


        • veleri

          ehr, not really :D
          unfortunately we are surrounded by real duck lips. so sad.

      • veleri

        I know, she is always doing that thing with her mouth. I kinda think that’s her “signature” or something. :/

        • Tatiana Luján


    • nannypoo

      Who are these angst-ridden people? I want to be one of them.

      • Qitkat

        Not me!

      • formerlyAnon

        Oh hell no. This is the family you marry into in haste and repent doing so at leisure.

    • crash1212

      It’s like a story! Don’t care much for the clothes…but LOVE that red bag.

    • Jenna Chapman

      … TEETH.

    • embers618

      It looks like they passed out the plots to four different movies at random to the different people in the shoot for inspiration, and then grouped them indiscriminately for the photos.

      • demidaemon

        I would edit that to make it “porno” movies. These look like the stills for the first scenes of a porno involving Italian widows and priests.

        • formerlyAnon

          Don’t forget the nun lurking in the background in a couple of the photos.

      • mlle

        I would watch the movie about glamorous Italians hanging out in a courtyard (based on 4, 9)

    • iheartbuffy

      standard. I’m not sure I could tell the difference between this one and the 2009 ones

      • Let it out

        I thought this *was* the 2009 collection. Or any of the other recent Italian widow collections. Same silhouettes, same hair, same jewelry, same location. Yawn.

    • Aurumgirl

      It’s the funeral collection this time around.

    • alyce1213

      Production stills from a musical comedy, takes place at an Italian funeral.

      • Nicole Walraven

        exactly. thank you. all that kept running through my mind was “funeral” and then “Grease?”. you nailed it so succinctly.

      • Aurumgirl

        In the local cathedral’s bordello.

    • ballerinawithagun

      Same old clothes but I love this movie…

    • ‘Becca’lise Deveaux

      WHAT is she doing with her face? It’s like she’s trying to hide prosthetic vampire teeth!

    • arden

      I kind of like the drama. The last shot is my favorite.

    • Little_Olive

      The model is… an extra in Twilight?

    • annabelle archer

      I didn’t know Dolce & Gabbana were Italian.

      (there really needs to be a sarcasm font)

    • Synnae

      I want every single dress worn by Monica Belluci in this shoot. Right up my alley (I do sexy-ass Italian widow really well)

    • StellaZafella

      I want to see this Gilbert and Sullivan Operetta!

      • MoHub

        No. Less G&S and more Puccini.

        • StellaZafella

          To each her own but when I see this many prettyyoungskinnyvirile men in tapestry shoes and coats…I see G&S. Like a really twisted Italian take on the Mikado… ;>)

          • MoHub

            Well, maybe The Gondoliers, but those are some very wealthy contadine!

          • formerlyAnon

            Ahem. Whilst leaning toward G&S, myself, let us not quibble and stray from the point of this theoretical theatrical production:

            “prettyyoungskinnyvirile men in tapestry shoes and coats”

    • NurseEllen

      I seriously covet the eyebrows on the model wearing the crown. They are perfect.

      • CPK1

        now if only she could close her mouth

    • formerlyAnon

      Go through these, ignoring the figures who are in the foreground/the focal point. Instead, examine the facial expressions of the background figures.

      • JuliaInBlack

        Heh. I like to do that too and make up my own captions. One of my perennial faves is (sorry for the low humour) “Who farted?” which works for a lot of these shots.

    • conniemd

      Now that vampires have been mentioned, I can’t unsee the lead model opening her mouth wider to reveal her fanged molars.

    • ShaoLinKitten

      In the picture with the crown, the model looks a little derp-dee-derp to me. That sultry facial expression comes off laughable.

    • formerlyAnon

      There’s a higher than usual ratio of things I’d like to see again in this one. The b&w floral men’s shoes? Awesome.

    • DominoEstella

      I love those red lace swingy dresses. So beautiful.

    • kmk05

      …Is this Four Funerals and a Wedding?

      I adore the swingy red dresses, and the coats are to die for. I wish women had waistcoats too! I am desiring the men’s suits something fierce.

    • appliquer

      Love the guys flower shoes!

    • Meredith

      But the lace all looks hot and stiff.

    • Louise Bryan

      Sorry, but was this done at Mme. Tussauds? The people don’t look real, really.

    • Blair Sylvester

      Aren’t there a few (dozen) shots too many? I mean I know the D&G aesthetic doesn’t include the words minimalism in any sense but there are at least twenty shots

    • acevedob

      Premise: “my big anorexic Italian family…without facial expressions”!!

    • Nicole Little

      The clothes and the photographs tell a congruous story.

    • Pedro Sorenson

      Love. Those expressions are disquieting and compelling in the best way — and sure to attract attention in crowded fashion rags.

    • librarygrrl64

      D&G always does such fun and crazy shoots. This one leans toward crazy. But I would cut a bitch for that red coat.

    • Kirstin McAulay

      Such a shame the poor girl had to borrow misfitting dentures… still the crown made up for it.

    • Stacy C

      Don’t cry for them Argentina.

    • MK03

      That is one bitchin’ funeral.

    • KayEmWhy

      Forget that models I’d die for that red purse.

    • quiltrx

      I feel like every D & G campaign is the same lately, just different clothes ‘shopped in. Especially those near the top against the wall.
      I covet each and every bag, BTW.

    • Reality TV Casting

      where was this filmed? it looks So familiar!!

    • DCSheehan

      It looks like they’re all waiting for a bus.

    • stephbellard

      Utterly lame.

    • altissima

      In every shot, that woman looks as though she’s just done, or just smelled, a fart!

    • veleri

      oh my, what were they thinking?!

    • queen b*tch

      Is it meant to be this funny?!

    • Terry

      Overall, the women’s outfits are fabulous particularly that red coat. I can’t help thinking, though, that those floral men’s shoes look like clown shoes.

    • marshmallowjane

      The men look great in these photos, except they look like they’re no more than 20 years old. Who could wear these women’s clothing? Maybe a model or celeb on a magazine cover. Most of this fabric looks very rich. Who wants a royal face that covers most of the dress bodice? Who could wear all this red? Tent dresses came in and left in the 60s. They looked great on girls with small boobs and nice legs. Very few women have small boobs these days.

    • Sara Brams-Miller

      The clothes are beautiful, but this is the most awfully-staged campaign I have ever seen. That model is horrific.

      • carnush

        She looks like the cat lady. Talk about crazy eyes!

        • Sara Brams-Miller

          I used to call Stephanie Seymour the Cat Lady. I never did like her much.

    • Carleenml

      I think I would actually love a cheapo, rip-off version t-shirt of the mosaics.

    • AmeliaEve

      They have done it before and they’ll do it again. I can’t help myself. I love this stuff.

    • hellkell

      “Picture it, Sicily, 1958…”

    • rissa42210

      The ringleader one is giving me… teeth. Also, this line is repetitive of their last. I’m bored.

    • elemspbee

      Love the clothes, but these ladies are not face models, or maybe they are if they weren’t asked to expressed. the thumbnail pic for this entry is frightening. must unsee!!!

    • marlie

      Pretty clothes, but there’s something really off-putting about the main female model’s expression.

    • kategs

      I want every single one of those coats!

    • Angela_the_Librarian

      So, what do you think the story is with this shoot? Do you think the priest was just vested (or whatever the last step of priesthood is) and his family is there to celebrate. His childhood girlfriend though is non too pleased and keeps making emotional outbursts, which in turn embarrasses the rest of the family and ignites shouting matches. In the end the girlfriend goes from man to man trying to mend her broken heart and ends up getting some sweet swag and coats along the way.

    • clairellis

      It’s like the opposite of duck face.

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      *Sigh….* My Pretty For the Day. Thank you, Uncles!

    • Coleen

      Is that Monica Bellucci in some of those photos? Because if so, she needed to be the focus of this damn ad campaign, not Italian Jessica Pare.

    • cheekypinky

      I love the Byzantine mosaic dresses so badly it makes my heart hurt.
