Dolce & Gabbana, Spring-Summer 2010
When I showed this campaign shot of Madonna to my brother, his immediate response was:
(In full-on panic mode)
"Oh my God, is that cocaine on her face? ... No. Shame."
Probably not the reaction Dolce & Gabbana were looking for.
... And yet, I'm not sure what it's most disparaging of:
1. Madonna's acting abilities, or lack thereof.
2. The fashion world's unquenchable thirst for shock value.
3. My brother's expectations of the Italian duo's taste-level. (Hint: They're low.)
Either way, it made me laugh.
