Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2013 Runway
Once again, Dolce and Gabbana's Fall 2013 collection was one of pure over-the-top extravagance, celebrating the brand's rich Italian history. With models decked out in golden crowns, oversize chandelier earrings, and rosary beads, designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana churned out a collection filled with ornate details. Such was the case with the intricate Monreale Cathedral church mosaics they featured — the duo enlisted the help of local artisans and experts to re-create the complex artwork — on a wide array of shimmery dresses and filigree sculpted shoes and embroidered bags. The decadence continued with beaded shift dresses featuring flared flute sleeves and a look that highlighted a gold stone-embellished bustier dedicated to Saint Agatha. However, it wasn't all about the glitz and glamour; Dolce and Gabbana provided pared-downed elegance for the everyday lady via chic tweed skirtsuits and tailored coats. The closer? A stampede of models decked out in a captivating lineup of bejeweled red lace dresses simply took our breath away. See the full collection in all its glory now.
