I am loving these guys!
From Daily Mail: Miley Cyrus has never been one to back down from what she believes in. And the 24-year-old pop star wasn’t afraid to critique the designers of Dolce & Gabbana while she congratulated brother Braison for making his runway debut in their Saturday fashion show.
Although the post began with the Malibu singer gushing about her baby brother, it ended on a political note with the starlet writing ‘PS ‘D&G, I STRONGLY disagree with your politics,’ likely making an nod to the brand’s work with First lady Melania Trump.
Miley shout out to brother Braison began straightforward enough as the pop star gushed about the 23-year-old calling him the ‘most talented musician my ears have ever been given the gift of hearing’ and praising him for ‘stepping out of his comfort zone’ on the catwalk.
But her post took a turn towards the political with the Wrecking Ball singer’s post-script, writing ‘PS D&G, I STRONGLY disagree with your politics.’
The former Disney diva’s comments were likely directed towards the Italian fashion house’s decision to dress First Lady Melania Trump, which earned them significant criticism. After their relationship with the Trumps even sparked a boycott online, the fashionistos fought back with style, producing a $245 ‘#Boycott Dolce & Gabbana.’
Stefano Gabbana was not pleased with Miley’s dig, commenting on the post first ‘Ignorant!!!’ and then later writing ‘For your stupid comment never more work with [your brother] ❤❤.’
Not one to take the high road, Stefano Gabbana also snapped back at Miley on his Instagram account, writing her a message in his native Italian. Translated, it reads: ‘We are Italian and we don’t care about politics and mostly neither about the American one!
‘We make dresses and if you think about doing politics with a post it’s simply ignorant. We don’t need your posts or comments so next time please ignore us!!’
He added the tag ‘#boycottdolcegabbana’ just in case Miley had a change of heart and decided to pick up an stubbornly overpriced tee shirt.
D&G’s work with Melania hasn’t been their only recent brush with controversy.
Founders Stefano Gabano and Domenico Dolce found themselves in hot water after the openly gay fashionistas expressed their disapproval for gay parenting and IVF in a 2015 interview with Italian magazine Panorama.
‘We oppose gay adoptions. The only family is the traditional one … No chemical offsprings and rented uterus; Life has a natural flow, there are things that should not be changed,’ said the designers in the piece titled ‘Long-Live the [Traditional] Family.’
