Summer is around the corner lovelies, and with all that is going on in the world, we could use a mindful break and escape, (even if for a quick minute), to an Italian dream world where fashion and amore abound.

To help us out, I’ve compiled a few captivating looks, which I’ll call “La Dolce Vita” glam, inspired by the talented Dolce and Gabbana designers.

Indeed, nothing sets the tone for romance and opulence like the spectacular fashion campaigns and editorial productions of the aforementioned Italian luxury power house.

For the past 5 years, I would look forward to their stunning set designs, signature lace infused styles and architectural and iconographic motifs. The collections are inspired by the designers’ native Sicily and its phenomenal religious architecture.

I truly love the romance and luxurious beauty the collections convey, so here are my Top 3 tips to look like a classic D&G it-girl, with all the glitz, glam and opulence of the signature baroque style!

Just scroll through the images and advice inspired by my favorite looks from the D&G Alta Moda runways, lookbooks and editorial campaigns.

Tip 1. Refined and Aristocratic makeup

According to famed makeup and beauty mogul Pat Mc Garth, (who’s is responsible for the models’ stunning glam), the look of the D& G girl is “aristocratic and refined”.

A neutral base. Define cheeks with light contour. Sleek eye liner and a bit of blush to accentuate the cheekbones. A piercing matte red lippie to tie it all together.

That’s why when I was invited to the high fashion brand’s pre-show event, I couldn’t wait to see what they had in store and looked forward to their opulently crafted new collection.

And I was truly not disappointed.

2. A regal dress with iconographic motifs

According to a Vogue magazine article, the Italian designers were inspired by their native Sicily’s architectural landscape to bring forth the classical spirit in their designs.
