“It's a real honor that all these amazing designers and artists choose you for your style, because I also love fashion. I love clothes, I have always liked them. When I was a girl and I lived in the Bronx, I ripped up my sweatshirts and jeans imitating Janet Jackson, Madonna and Cindy Lauper," said Jennifer Lopez in 2019, when the Council of American Fashion Designers (CFDA) named her Icon of the Year. Two Years later, no one doubts at this point that she is the diva of the moment. There are others, of course, but none has the strength, influence, glamor and power of the singer and actress. Gone are the years when fashion was for her a foreign world.Today the most important designers on the planet raffle her off and she lets herself be loved.
Italians adore her
Since 2019 she has not stopped climbing the best dressed lists and has been raising her bearing in each of her appearances. With Italian designers she has a very special romance. Donatella Versace made her a symbol of power, fashion and feminism when she dressed her in the Jungle Dress at the 42nd edition of the Grammy Awards in the year 2000, and the Valentino house has been the definitive accolade to the couture Olympus for her. But now he has a love story with Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, who after a few years of being away from the covers of magazines, are living a glorious moment. They have just presented their new Alta Moda collection, an equivalent to Haute Couture (a label that can only be used in Paris) and they also have the support of Hollywood stars and the most powerful artists, from Sharon Stone and Jennifer López to Madonna.
Waste of stars
For the new parade they have thrown the house out of the window. As usual (except for the months of confinement) it is not limited to an afternoon on the catwalk. The Italians are committed to creating a unique experience for their guests and the event lasts several days. On this occasion it runs from August 29 to 30 and will serve to show its High Fashion, High Jewelry and High Watchmaking collections, both for women and men. Taking place in Venice, days before the city hosts its famous film festival, guests have arrived on the catwalk the way movie stars arrive at the festival: by speedboat. Of course, by the hand of several assistants from the sewing workshop and guarded by several bodyguards.
Jennifer López is the one who has had the most prominence but we must not forget the parade of famous faces and names: Sharon Stone, Zoe Saldaña with Marco Perego, Heidi Klum (who has gone with her partner Tom Kaulitz and her daughter Leni) , Kitty Spencer, Luis Fonsi with Águeda López, Ozuna, Sebastian Yatra, Maria Bakalova, Helen Mirren, Kris Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, January Jones, Bebe Rexha, Sydney Sweene, Vin Diesel Sean Combs (Diddy) and Jennifer Hudson, who has also sung Nessum Dorma, the famous aria from the final act of Turandot, by Giacomo Puccini.

Theatrical and majestic
Everyone has been dressed in the most representative garments of the house. Zoe Saldaña and Heidi Klum have opted for seemingly simple but tremendously sensual black dresses. But, as we say, all the leading role has been taken by Jennifer López. And that has not gone with her Ben Aflleck. The singer and actress has conquered everyone with a theatrical and majestic look, a three-piece set made up of a crop top with colored beading and high-waisted suit pants in brocaded silk with metallic flowers that stand out on a black background. . In addition, she has donned a stunning silk satin cape in two shades of green that bears an eye-catching floral print, a design that falls from the shoulders to the floor. The accessories chosen are: fabulous high-heeled shoes studded with gemstones, a soft raffia bag with a heart-shaped jewel-brooch, a headband and an unabashedly baroque set of jewellery.
"Inspired by Venetian art, culture and splendor, the Alta Sartoria and Alta Moda Collections pay homage to the history of Venice and its illustrious artists, while the High Jewelery Collections enchant visitors with the radiance of gold and the gems, as precious and unique as the city itself", say the Italian designers who now dress women and men with a proposal that combines luxury, fantasy, history, craftsmanship and beauty. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have been in fashion at a very high level since 1984 and now they want to give back to Italy everything that their country has given them, and they do so by paying homage to the fashion trades: artisans who every day extol traditions with their hands, basting past, present and future.
