Thank you! I imagine the press for it will be insane.

If the girls walk out in prison uniforms as if to send a message to the Italian government, I would still enjoy it cause it'll finally break the Sicilian streak. And who knows, maybe they can even have a good cast of sexy and diverse girls again.

There is no doubt that that their Spring show is going to be a spectacular of some sort in response to the verdict. Im guessing either the girls will walk out in prison uniforms OR D&G will make their appearance at the end in handcuffs or prison uniforms.

I seriously doubt that. I'm sure it's going to be as tacky and predictable as their last 50 collections.

Oh whoops , wrong word I meant a big, theatrical show. I agree though MelancholyBaby. Spectacular would not be the right word at all! Eh, guess you could say I used it in a sarcastic sense.

Personally, I'm expecting dresses with "F*ck You Milan" and "I <3 ROME" prints.

Prosecutor asks court to clear Dolce and Gabbana in tax case
Quote:
An Italian prosecutor asked an appeals court to clear fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana from charges of evading taxes on royalties of 1 billion euros ($1.4 billion).

The design duo, whose corset dresses are liked by celebrities such as Kylie Minogue and Kate Moss, were handed a 20-month suspended prison sentence by a lower court in June and a fine of up to 10 million euros for allegedly using Luxembourg subsidiary Gado to avoid declaring taxes on the royalties.

The designers, who denied any wrongdoing, have strongly criticised the ruling and even shut their Milan stores for three days in July in protest at the public outcry that followed the sentence.

"The criminal conviction (handed in June) clashes with common sense from a legal point of view," Milan prosecutor Gaetano Santamaria Amato told judges in his last speech before the appeals' court verdict, which is expected in the next few weeks.

Although the prosecutor's request is non-binding, it increases the likelihood that Dolce and Gabbana will be acquitted.

The pair's designs are inspired by the island of Sicily, homeland to Dolce. They showed their first collection in 1985 in Milan. The brand took hold internationally in the 1990s and global revenues hit just under 1.5 billion euros in 2011.

The case stems from an investigation that began in 2008, when Italian tax authorities stepped up their fight against tax evasion as a global financial crisis began to bite.

Previous tax cases involving celebrities in Italy have led to out-of-court settlements.

In 2000 the late opera singer Luciano Pavarotti paid more than $12 million in back taxes, while former MotoGP world champion Valentino Rossi agreed to pay $51 million to Italy's tax agency in 2008. ($1 = 0.7255 Euros)

Wait, what? Prosecutor is asking for the Defendants to be acquitted? I'm confused. Why bring the charges in the first place if you don't think they're guilty?

Wow. They must've paid the prosector a nice sum of cash to ask the judge to acquit them over BILLIONS of Euros.

My heart dropped when I read they probably won't serve jail time
I'm so fed up with celebrities being treated as above the law, just like the clergy in years gone by
