You know, I’ve always loved Dolce & Gabbana (their use of red is fierce, and I adore the color red – it’s my signature color…I even wore it for my wedding). After reading this story, I may love D&G even more today than I did yesterday.
Apparently, Stefano Gabbana Instagrammed this picture of Melania Trump wearing this D&G dress on New Years Eve:
Apparently, Melania has worn the brand for quite some time, and Stefano Gabbana said, “#madeinitaly” and called her a “DG Woman.” The post “generated more than 13,000 likes and 1,129 comments as of Tuesday afternoon.”
One Instagrammer commented:
“No! Whether she’s beautiful or not, would you be proud to dress Eva Braun? So wrong,” which was a reference to Adolf Hitler’s companion and wife for 40 hours.
Gabbana responded with “Who is Eva Brown? Sorry….” perhaps mistakenly translating “Braun” from German to mean “Brown.”
I swear, the Hitler comparison is so played, people. Can someone cite when Donald Trump has engaged in genocide? If you can do that, then you can use the Hitler comparison. But until then, shut your piehole. That comparison makes you look like a complete idiot. Enough already.
Gabbana called other commenters “ignorant.” Which is completely apropos, and now I totally want to save up my money and buy a pair of D&G sunglasses (it’s pretty much all I can afford in their collection – just keeping it real). It’s so on.
According to source, there are other idiotic designers who are boycotting Melania, including Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs, presumably because they don’t understand how business works. So that’s neat for them. “Others, like Tommy Hilfiger, Diane von Furstenberg, Thom Browne and Carolina Herrera,” have more of a freaking clue how the real world works.
Hats off to Dolce and Gabbana. Bellissima. Too bad more American designers can’t take their lead and get a grip.
