If you stop, breathe deeply, and listen very very closely, you can almost hear the world’s tiniest violin playing a little sad tune for Anne, as she faces the fact that people who say “we oppose gay adoptions…the only family is the traditional one” and call children born of IVF “synthetic” might not get the warmest of warm receptions any more.
Dolce and Gabbana’s fall presentation in Milan was an ode to mothers. A pregnant Bianca Balti took to the runway alongside four models and their children, while real-life mothers and their children also stood on stage. Inspired by their nieces’ and nephews’ drawings, the collection was reminiscent of Angelina Jolie’s own wedding dress that was had her children’s printed drawings on them. As always, the pieces were elegant and romantic, but the star of the runway were those jewel-encrusted headphones!
