The dark side of Dolce & Gabbana: Kardashians pocket millions from brand despite past controversies

July 13, 2023

Worse still, Kim appeared to escalate matters further at the weekend when she apparently copied one of her sister’s Dolce & Gabbana wedding outfits – a dramatic black corset dress with veil (pictured). Kourtney previously revealed that the Italian designers allowed her and husband’s families to use their Portofino estate and even their superyacht during their spectacularly gaudy nuptials. After celebrities such as Elton John and Courtney Love expressed outrage – the former calling for a boycott of D&G – Gabbana branded Elton a ‘fascist’ on Instagram. This was perhaps most apparent in 2017 when, pilloried for dressing then-First Lady Melania Trump, they responded simply by putting out their own $245 ‘#Boycott Dolce & Gabbana’ T-shirts. Even so, Dolce & Gabbana is not making the profits it once did and it’s clear that many people will not forgive its owners’ past sins.
