D&G 2006 Ads: They Had To Shrink Someone -UPDATED
Believe it, Kickettes. You are not dreaming. Word has reached us that after Dolce & Gabbana shot their infamous 2006 campaign with the Italian National Team some extra photoshop work had to be done in post-production.
What kind of photoshop re-touching, you ask? Contrary to what you may assume (that the graphic design fairies needed to bump up the shorts of someone not quite up to scratch), it’s quite the opposite.
They had to shrink someone’s package.
Please. This bears repeating. In fact, say it out loud with us now: They Had To Shrink It.
In an archived interview, the designers admitted that while usually there’s no reason to adjust the sizes of their models they hinted that in the 2006 pics someone was too large. Thus, they had to minimize some size.
Again. Repeat: They had to Minimize. Some. Size.
Best to take the rest of the day off with a large colour photocopy of this image and get to analyzing. Who do you think it is?
We’ll reveal what the “official” rumour/gossip is on the winning footballer over the weekend on twitter. In the meantime, we’re going to skip, rather than walk for the rest of the day.
In case you missed our twitter update, here’s the scoop: it’s Fabio Cannavaro.
This life-changing news leaked from an interview with Italian tv presenter Victoria Cabella and Domenico Dolce/Stefano Gabbana during her show “Victor Victoria” . After the designers mentioned an adjustment, Victoria pushed them on air to find out who the “lucky” one was.
They wouldn’t answer her – but this article suggests that Victoria blew the cover, and that it was Fabio Cannavaro that required the change.
Like any decent telly presenter worth their salt, we’re assuming Victoria got the info off camera and couldn’t contain herself. Really, can you blame her for blabbing? We’re writing this post from a tattoo studio where we’re getting “Canna: no shrinkage required” permanently placed on our person.
