Madonna in the Dolce & Gabbana campaign: the images
| posted Dec 16, 2009
Exclusive in this week’s Italian edition of Vanity Fair is the worldwide preview of Dolce & Gabbana’s new spring/summer 2010 campaign featuring pop icon Madonna.
Madonna’s private life is seldom out of the papers but this new Dolce & Gabbana campaign is unlike anything you have seen before. Exit the paparazzo, these shots are by Steven Klein no less; revealing much more than a grainy stolen picture, they showcase an intimate, more real aspect to the ultimate icon’s life.

In keeping with Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring/Summer 2010 collection’s emphasis on Mediterranean heritage and classic Italian sensuality, the mood isn’t unlike a film from the days of Italian Neorealism. Madonna herself recalls the strong, raw sensuality of the iconic actress Anna Magnani – showcasing when soft sensuality meets bold authenticity.
Madonna shot by Steven Klein features in the new Dolce & Gabbana ad campaign inspired by Italian Neorealism cinema.
In the Vanity Fair Italy feature, Stefano Gabbana discusses the campaign and why Madonna was the perfect match: “She loved the collection,” he says, “…she is passionate and impressively knowledgeable about Italian cinema,” (Monica is Vitti her favourite actress and we see the resemblance).”
When asked as to whether Madonna knows how to wash dishes, Stefano Gabbana replies “Certainly…she’s a very practical woman...” And does she actually eat spaghetti despite her most enviable figure? “Of course, says Stefano, and she can allow herself too with all the exercise she does!”
Madonna reveals a unique intimate side in these new campaign images from Dolce & Gabbana.
