Dolce & Gabbana has been one of the only fashion houses to embrace First Lady Melania Trump and she took advantage and went out in Sicily on the first day of the G-7 summit wearing a bright, floral jacket that retails for $51,500! The jacket isn’t even available in stores yet, but it’s already sold out on Moda Operandi, where you have to put down a $25,750 deposit.
Designer Stefano Gabbana gushed about Melania on his Instagram page, posting pics with hearts #DGWoman. She also wore a sparkly custom Dolce & Gabbana outfit (below) to a concert by the La Scala Philharmonic Orchestra.
D&G were also the designer of choice to her meeting with Pope Francis at the Vatican.
During the NATO summit in Brussels on Thursday, Melania wore head-to-toe D&G to a meeting with Queen Mathilde of Belgium.
The designers have been nothing but proud of the first lady’s preference for his clothing — which she wore for her first official portrait — even as critics have attacked him on social media.
On his Instagram he posted,
“Isn’t it weird? Yesterday at 11pm we had 13.7 million followers. Today at 12 AM after all the people saying ‘unfollowing you’ we have 13.7 million #DGHaters #boycottdolce&gabbana #DGLAVERITA,’”
I don’t know anybody that wears their clothes (unless it’s free.) You can be their old pal Madonna won’t be wearing it in public anytime soon.
