Who better to embody Dolce & Gabbana's vision of high-intensity glamour than
Victoria Beckham, formerly known as Posh Spice? In her fitted top-stitched
suit, oversize aviators, driving cap, spike heels and net gloves (over which
was slipped a candy-sized diamond ring), Mrs. Beckham made the perfect
front-row celebutante for this full-on show.
Posh surely found plenty to catch her silver-accented eye: Dolce & Gabbana offered everything from perfectly tailored jackets and elephant-leg trousers to corseted frocks and ultra-feminine lace-inset dresses (worn with skimpy cardigan wraps thrown over the shoulders and tied in the front). The upbeat collection escalated into an explosion of color that included eye-popping flower-print chiffon dresses, woven ribbon jackets and miniskirts, and suede jeans with purple, gold, lavender and red leather insets. The absolute standout was a short parakeet-print dress in jungle shades, worn with a multihued woven belt and a pink-and-green carrier purse.
Accessories, anyone? Major statements included a metallic logo belt, gold D and G pendants, and a dangling set of earrings that spelled outwhat else?"Dolce" and "Gabbana."
