MILAN (Reuters) – There are times when even Milan’s sleek fashion pack lose their cool.
When Jennifer Lopez sashayed into Dolce & Gabbana’s catwalk show on Thursday, she was met with whoops and roaring applause as even the front rows — packed with top buyers and the cream of the fashion press — stood to get a glimpse of the pop diva.
But Lopez, in a figure-hugging dress, was all but eclipsed by the rich gold embroidery and sumptuous empire-line brocades that filled a collection inspired by Napoleon and his time.
“It was so beautiful, so gorgeous,” Lopez told Reuters backstage after the show as she sat between designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. “It was everything you expect from Dolce & Gabbana — sexy, powerful, ethereal.”
