I’m sitting here reading an article in my hard copy of the NY Post about how fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana of Dolce & Gabbana tried to have a story about their tax fraud problems killed in an upcoming issue of Vanity Fair. Apparently their efforts to persuade Anna Wintour (who helms another Conde Nast publication) to run interference for them while they appeal their guilty verdict have failed. Even the threat of pulling all D&G fashion and beauty ads from Conde Nast titles to the tune of $10-$20 million dollars didn’t get the job done.
Hey, if I were invited to their Alta Moda extravaganza on the island of Capri (did you see the clothes? Beyond brilliant…) I would pull the story! They may or may not be guilty, but they are an incomparable designing duo! Even their makeup is sublime. Then again, I’m not Anna. Probably for good reason. I’m that easily swayed. Trip to Italy + being wined and dined = unflappable loyalty.
Anyway, I just went online to find the link to the article on Page Six to forward to someone and guess what? It’s not there. Every other item on today’s Page Six is there, but there is nothing (and I even tried searching) on Dolce & Gabbana to be found anywhere. So when Page Six claims a rep for Dolce & Gabbana didn’t get back to them – apparently they did. After the paper went to print.
