Exclusive in this week's Italian edition of Vanity Fair is the worldwide preview of Dolce & Gabbana's new spring/summer 2010 campaign featuring pop icon Madonna. Click here to take a first look and read what designer Stefano Gabbana has to say about the shoot and the star.
Madonna's private life is seldom out of the papers but this new Dolce & Gabbana campaign is unlike anything you have seen before. 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 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 Vitti is 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!'
