BRIT girl Lara Mullen was one of the models chosen by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana to showcase their label's debut couture collection in Sicily earlier this week. Here, the Vogue favourite - who also walked in the Dolce & Gabbana ready-to-wear show in Milan in February - tells us her experiences of the momentous fashion event.

"It was such a privilege to be involved in Dolce & Gabbana's couture debut, and definitely a story to tell the grandchildren."
"The clothes were exquisite; beautiful fabrics with flower detailing and hand-painted dresses. The cage skirts were probably my favourite. The show setting was incredible; it was so intimate with a live opera that added to the ambiance and the brand's Sicilian heritage."

"It was also so nice to spend three days in Taormina, Sicily, with all of the other girls; swimming in the hotel pool until the early hours and going out for dinner. All the local people would stare and ask if we were models. To which we would reply 'no'."
