Two iconic looks from Dolce & Gabbana will represent Italian fashion at the Musée des arts Décoratifs’ “Histoire idéale de la mode contemporaine vol. 2 : 1990–2000″ exhibit, which opens in Paris on November 25 and runs through May 8.
The exhibit looks at fashion from the last ten years of the 20th century, beginning with looks from minimalist designers like Azzedine Alaïa, Yohji Yamamoto, Helmut Lang and Martin Margiela and ending with the more provocative and over-the-top designs of John Galliano and Vivienne Westwood.
The Italian design duo, who are currently in hot water on charges of tax evasion, provided two looks to represent Italian fashion at the exhibit–pieces that place them squarely in the more provocative camp. The first look is a corset embellished with multicolored stones and charms from Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall ’91/’92 collection, made famous by Madonna when she wore it to the ’91 premiere of Truth or Dare in NYC. The second piece is a corset armor dress from Spring ’07, worn famously by her Madgesty’s descendant, Lady Gaga.
Check out the looks below both on the runway and on the gals who made them famous.
