One thing we’ve witnessed from campaigns this season is that brands tend to stick to their winning formula (often to our dismay). Dolce & Gabbana, for example, continuously projects the image of a true Italian lifestyle in its ads. For Fall 2015, the brand reinterprets its tried-and-true concept for the 21st century by having models take selfies on set. In the sea of Dolce-clad bodies, can you spot models Ashleigh Good and Tami Williams alongside actress Monica Bellucci? Stefano Gabbana should leave shooting the campaign to someone else because we can’t even think straight, with everything that’s going on.
Forum member TeeVanity was the first to point out that the ad is “so crowded!”
“Goodness this campaign is such a mess! Way too many people and it looks as if they just shoved any model they could find and put on them whatever they wanted. This looks so lazy and cheap – such a downgrade from their previous campaigns. Vomit,” declared Nomar the moment the images hit.

“How the mighty have fallen. This is just as bad as the previous collections and campaigns. Dolce & Gabbana needs a new creative vision. Did they even bother trying for this one?” asked MON.
GivenchyHomme wasn’t interested either, adding, “They’re really going to fall behind if they don’t start getting with the times. This is so irrelevant for today, I don’t know who would find this appealing.”
You best believe Benn98 wasn’t feeling it either. “Jesus wept!! Hands down the worst campaign I’ve seen in years,” he announced.
