Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda 2023 Show

Kim Kardashian Dolce&Gabbana Alta Moda 2023 Show

The Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda 2023 show was held at Alberobello on Sunday (July 9) in Puglia, Italy, with an expected A-list front row.

Considering that Kim Kardashian has worn quite a bit of her Spring 2023 collection with Dolce & Gabbana, I was expecting a custom look.

I don’t know about you, but I felt that this dramatic plum taffeta cape draped over a DNA lingerie bodysuit was so refreshing, considering Kim has worn tight fitted dresses for…well, forever.

We have been crying out for something new in terms of style and silhouette and finally, she delivered. 

A Dolce & Gabbana white gold necklace and “Rubellite” tourmaline and diamond chandelier earrings completed her look.

Anitta Dolce&Gabbana Alta Moda 2023 Show

Anitta is the only one who truly understood this weekend’s assignment, and I’m not really surprised.

From the golden embroidered lace mini dress to the accessories which included embroidered boots, tulle gloves, and a tulle and lace veil, she gave us yet another exquisite look that was steep in Dolce & Gabbana OTTness.

Her jewelry consisted of a black “tatting” set with late 19th-century miniatures, diamonds and pearls and a ring in yellow and white gold with diamonds.

Future Dolce&Gabbana Alta Moda 2023 Show

There’s something inherently bold about wearing one singularly pure colour; the question of whether it will remain immaculate or be soiled always hangs in the balance.

Future looked achingly cool in his Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2024 all white suit styled with Dolce & Gabbana New Roma sneakers and Alta Gioielleria cufflinks in gold, malachite, and diamonds.

Helen Mirren Dolce&Gabbana Alta Moda 2023 Show

Helen Mirren looked beautiful once again wearing a custom red chiffon Dolce & Gabbana gown, but the story of her weekend has really been her jewelry.

In this case I’m completely enamoured by her supremely elegant necklace in white and yellow gold which is distinguished by the preciousness of the gemstones and sophistication of Dolce & Gabbana’s jewelry making techniques.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley 
Dolce&Gabbana Alta Moda 2023 Show

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is known for her minimalism, so I was kinda surprised to see her at this event.

However, she stayed on brand wearing a custom Dolce & Gabbana chiffon draped bra inspired by the Spring 1999 collection, along with a crystal tasseled marquisette skirt.

A mini Dolce & Gabbana Sicily bag was the go-to accessory at this event.

Kerry Washington Dolce&Gabbana Alta Moda 2023 Show

While Kerry Washington’s first look had her still in vacation mode, she dialled things up for the main event wearing a custom Dolce & Gabbana black column gown embroidered with Swarovski crystals recreating a classic lace motif.

Her magnificent necklace – set in yellow and white gold with “Rubellite” tourmalines, yellow sapphires, rubies, diamonds, pearls, moonstone, micro mosaic and coins – pays tribute to the solemn dignity of the ancient world through complex iconography and impeccable goldsmithing.

This might be my favourite jewelled piece of the weekend.

Angela Bassett Dolce&Gabbana Alta Moda 2023 Show

Angela Bassett’s custom Dolce & Gabbana column dress embroidered with squared sequins with a 3D finish, and accented with a bronze chiffon draped detail, was inspired by a Grecian goddess.

Her dress was stunning, but the jewels were exquisite, along with a gold Dolce & Gabbana filigrine bag enriched with rubies and emeralds.

James Marsden Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda 2023 Show

James Marsden’s Dolce & Gabbana custom blue double-breasted suit styled with a white knitted cotton short-sleeve jumper, needed a pair of shoes in a slightly lighter colour.

Venus Williams Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda 2023 Show

When it comes to Venus Williams in this Dolce & Gabbana pink lace gown, I can’t get past the hair.

Lucien Laviscount Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda 2023 Show

Lucien Laviscount appeared to only change this shirt from the previous event.

Opting for white continued to highlight his tan.

And yes. I know Lucien is a black. But here you can see that his complexion is shades darker than his natural skin-tone.

Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda 2023 Show

Alessandra Ambrosio and sheer gowns are no stranger to each other, but I love how the embroidered gold cape gave this a different look and feel.

Pelayo Diaz Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda 2023 Show

Pelayo Díaz made sheer looks from the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2024 menswear collection, his M.O. for this extravagant weekend.

The actor styled his white lace kimono pajama set, with a white and yellow gold necklace from a limited-edition jewelry collection made with citrines, light blue sapphires, and diamonds.

Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2024
Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda 2023 Show

Leonie Hanne’s Dolce & Gabbana column dress fully embroidered with crystals was inspired by the closing look of the Fall 2023 fashion show.

She completed the look with silk black gloves and a crystal mesh choker.
