well, the models are two outstanding beauties and one queen of the business, I find the setting intriguing and interesting, the colours are eye-catching and still: It doesn't work.

Because those clothes are the most hideous, ugliest, freakin' eyesores that ever anybody tried to sell for a few grands and nobody in their right minds will say after looking at these ads:
'My, my, look at this, why not take a stroll to my local Dolce store this sunny afternoon so I can get myself a pink furry mohair coat that will keep me safe and warm and is a true investion in those oh so rough times. And when I'm there, why not get a glove-scarf too? Just for the fun of it?'

No, non, no, no, no.

Absolutely

Great concept, cast and setting! Edita and MCB... I like how the models seem to stand out from the background.

I think both Edita and Heidi are great misscast, MCB dominates every single shot, you even don't look at the 2 girls because your eyes got catched by her
Probably replacing Heidi and Edita with a more powerful and fierce Dolce girl(I don't know...Stam for instance,or Snejana ) would have been much better

No, non, no, no, no.
I felt in love with the fur coat since I saw it first This is winter collection, and I'm thinking about grey morning. So why not ? I would wear it with pleasure, for good mood And now imagine my teachers faces, when they'll see me

this Dolce&Gabbana collection, totally out of the context, self-indulgent and somehow ridiculous, has the same vibe of good old absurd to me. too much time and cash - all for nothing.
ah the casino makes sense to me now ...

thanks for enlighted ...

terrible clothes but a great campaign! and I love the casting, MCB looks fantastic. but honestly I must be blind as a bat cos I don't see why everyone is hating on Heidi in this?! I know it's a popular thing to do around here but seriously she looks great in this, especially in the shot with the pink fur coats

The casting of Heidi is a bit left field... not impressed with her...
MCB...there are no words...she ROCKS this!!!
and I love Edita's icyness... it goes well with all the extravagance of the collection....
I think it is a GREAT campaign!!!

impressive, but some of the pictures have a very busy background which can distract the focus from the clothes

I can relate the models to more animals, but I just never cared about the clothes
