Dolce & Gabbana’s three-day fashion event saw many current celebrities turn out stunning looks. The star-studded weekend in Venice during the Venice Film Festival seems to be an attempt at redemption from the controversial brand. Previously, the Dolce & Gabbana brand and founders have been accused of racism, homophobia and size exclusivity. In the past year, the brand has focused on changing its image by aligning with the Black Lives Matter movement and donating to COVID relief funds. 

Another part of their comeback plan appears to be associating with big names in the fashion and entertainment industry. Jennifer Lopez, Anna Wintour, Helen Mirren and Bebe Rexha were just some of the several high-profile guests at their weekend getaway.

Lopez has been working with Dolce & Gabbana for some time now, having repped the brand on her end-of-July vacation. 

Lopez appeared at the weekend event in another Dolce & Gabbana outfit consisting of mixed florals on an elegant cape, bra and trouser combination. The regality was further emphasized with an ornate headpiece, red dangle earrings and embellished gold heels. Her outfit represented a mix of trends and timeless pieces: pattern mixing with elegant florals, a muted color palette of trendy greens and pearls. 

Although an attempt at a comeback, the celebrities in attendance of the Dolce & Gabbana event have received some backlash from Instagram and Twitter. The guests, including Lopez, were criticized for supporting the Dolce & Gabbana brand despite past controversies.
