Worried about how high you’d rate on the sexyometer? In case that any of you aren’t sleeping well at night for the sheer worry of it all – buck up! ‘coz Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce are here to help!
Some tips: bras and high heels are a must, if you are to comply with the customs of Southern Italian women – and therefore the universal laws of sexy. They also specify the kind of bra (and it looks like our pathetic high street offerings wouldn’t nearly cut the mustard) ‘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!’ Domenico Dolce firmly admonished British Harper's Bazaar. And yes, that bra really should be lace, according to Stefano Gabbana: ‘[When a woman is] wearing a suit, the first thing I think is, “Is she wearing lace underwear?”’
The wearing of high heels is presumably SO obvious as to remove the need to explain it further. Apart from the immortal line added by Domenico Dolce; ‘it is impossible to see a woman in flat shoes’. Well it’s true that some woman are quite short. Though I think Naomi Campbell and QUITE a few of her supermodel friends prove this point quite wrong.
Another tick in the YES column would be wearing corsets, as a top you understand, not necessarily underneath. They are faaaaaaaaabulous, and require no further explanation. On the other hand, the boys would never encourage you to take your giant honker off to the nearest plastic surgeon. No sireee. They say; ‘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'
You see – you thought it was going to be stressful, the being sexy part. In fact it’s perfectly straightforward!
