On The A/W'11 Campaign Trail: Girl Meet Boy at Dolce & Gabbana

Traditionally, in mid-July, us Graziettas are bare-legged and boldly flaunting the latest lacy LWD so the last thing on our sunny minds is the black-on-black autumn/winter wardrobes that loom.

Today’s first stop is Dolce & Gabbana for which Steven Klein shot womanly-women and boy-girls lounging around the scrappy but terribly cool streets of New York City. Jac Jagaciak, Liu Wen and Kate King are seen championing the androgynous look in crisp white shirts, porkpie hats and sequined evening jackets while Isabeli Fontana, Maryna Linchu, and Constance Jablonski are their uber-feminine counterparts in corset dresses adorned with that gorgeous star print and sexy lace detailing.

What does this tell us? If there's one thing to be this winter, it's in Dolce's gang. If only we could decide on the gender…
