Dolce & Gabbana’s Guide To Seducing
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana‘s flashy and glamorous designs are worn regularly by A-listers such as Madonna, Uma Thurman, Olivia Wilde, and Jessica Alba to name a few, so the pair know a thing or two about looking and feeling sexy. In a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar UK the duo shared their tips and tricks of seduction for females to take note of.
1. Perfect your underpinnings
Sexiness is a matter of wearing the right underwear. Dolce says, ‘When we dress the model for a show, first we give them the bra, the satin, the lace. It’s all about respect for the body. You never see a woman from the south of Italy without a bra. Never!‘
2. Always add a heel
A Dolce woman always has a heel. Dolce says, ‘For me, it is impossible to see a woman in flat shoes’.
3. Play with androgyny, but remember you’re a woman
Gabbana says, ‘you don’t need to lose femininity by wearing a suit, the first thing I think is, “Is she wearing lace underwear?”.
4. Embrace underwear as outerwear
Gabbana says, ‘If you wear a corset, you lose one size. It puts everything up and it’s perfect. It corrects the shape’.
5. Walk tall
It is all in the way a woman carries herself ŕ la Linda, Naomi, Gisele, Claudia and Eva – the supers who queued up to appear in Dolce & Gabbana shows over the years. Dolce says, ‘When you dress, it isn’t just the body that’s important. It’s the balance of mind and body. Tutto en equilibre!’
6. Be revealing, but always with confidence
Dolce says, ‘It’s not about the skin, it’s the mind. It’s about confidence, but also subtlety. Again, the relationship between mind and body is what’s most important’.
7. A defining feature can be truly sexy
Gabbana says, ‘Personally, I like women who are not perfect. For example, I love a woman with a real nose. A nose is character. Many women want to change their noses, but for me, I’m fascinated’.
8. Find what works for you and stick to it
Dolce says, ‘When a woman has her style, she knows how to choose what she likes, not what is trendy. When you love what you are wearing, the clothes are alive’.
