Dolce & Gabbana's Alta Moda show, staged in Venice over the weekend, seems to have given the fashion industry collective amnesia.
The flashy event was attended by Helen Mirren, Jennifer Lopez, Megan Thee Stallion, Jennifer Hudson, Heidi Klum, Kris Jenner & Kourtney Kardashian, Ciara, Doja Cat, Normani, Diddy, Saweetie, among others garnered a slew of celebrity style buzz, as well as a glowing review on Vogue.
The abundance of A-list attendees, as well as the collection's embrace by the fashion gatekeepers, beg the question: does anyone remember Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana's pattern of racist, homophobic, and all-together crude remarks?( Collapse )
No matter how opulent the fashions, it's baffling how quickly celebrities and journalists alike seem to have forgotten Dolce & Gabbana's outdated values.
As the fashion industry fails to hold the brand accountable for its long history of racism, misogyny, and homophobia, an old adage comes to mind: love — at least of Venitian photo ops and sequined frocks — is blind.
, 3ONTD, have you ever invited most of today's hottest black celebrities to your fashion show, to distract from your long history of racism and gotten away with it?
