When it comes to fashion unions, you know I’m all about it feeling organic.
Cate Blanchett and Armani. Marion Cotillard and Chanel. Rosamund Pike and Givenchy. Emmy Rossum and Carolina Herrera. Alicia Vikander and Louis Vuitton. Tilda Swinton and Haider Ackerman plus Kirsten Dunst and Rodarte to name a few.
So when I saw that Dolce & Gabbana had tapped actress Sofia Vergara to be the face of their ‘Devotion’ handbag campaign, it instantly made sense to me.
In fact, my exact reaction was, “why have they never worked with her officially before?” She is after all the perfect Dolce & Gabbana woman in style, body and spirit.
The ‘Devotion’ bag was inspired by the designers love for stories like Romeo and Juliet, Lancelot and Guinevere, and Liang and Zhu to mirror Dolce & Gabbana’s dedication to tradition and timelessness.
It’s not a “one bag doesn’t fit all” item, as it comes in five models and three different sizes and an array of colours, so you can choose the right style for your aesthetic.
The 24-carat gold enamelled brass chain also allows for the bag to be worn cross-body, on the shoulder or in hand, but the one thing that doesn’t change is that each bag is marked with the ‘sacro cuore’ or sacred heart clasp.
The campaign was captured with a stunning backdrop, which tries, but fails to upstage the American-Colombian actress who is smoldering in a way that epitomizes the spirit of the brand.
In each shot she’s working a different ‘Devotion’ bag as well as a selection of Dolce & Gabbana’s most famed signature dresses ranging from lace, to their iconic animal print, and floral prints.
The actress was last seen in the role of Gloria Delgado-Pritchett in the acclaimed series ‘Modern Family,’ which said its final goodbye after more than a decade on US television last week.
In series of Instagram posts for the final episode her captions read, “My family on and off the screen forever. What an amazing 11 years.”
“So thankful for this family, the crew and all of our #modernfamily fans.”
“I will love my American family forever❤️❤️❤️❤️“
