MISS: D&G are Making a Movie

High-fashion met the movies when Hubert de Givenchy bullied his way into designing Audrey Hepburn's gowns in Funny Face and Sabrina. The two industries have been closely aligned ever since.

Until recently, however, this dynamic has primarily been what you'd expect - high-end stars and pictures need high-end clothes and costumes. Then, this past December, designer Tom Ford changed all that. His directorial debut A Single Man was widely acclaimed. (Incidentally, Ford gave an excellent interview with Terry Gross about the film on Fresh Air. I highly recommend giving it a listen. Find it here.)

But, fashionistas, just because Tom can do it doesn't mean that everyone can.

T Magazine announced
that the D&G boys, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, are releasing a feature length film this September, Quando, Quando, Quando.

Perche, perche, perche, D&G?

Please go here and watch the trailer. I haven't been able to get through it without laughing a little. Domenico and Stefano are brilliant at what they do, but I've seen more substance in a thirty-second clip of a Menudo video.

I'm giving the film an official preemptive BDC miss, which is totally unfair. But, whatever.
