DOLCE & GABBANA
designer Stefano Gabbana is courting controversy again: this time calling social media’s most followed person, pop star
Selena Gomez, left, “ugly”. The fashion guru, below left, criticised the 25-year-old this week, writing in the comment section beneath her image on Instagram page The Catwalk Italia: “É proprio brutta!!!”, which translates as “She’s so ugly!!!”
When another stated that the woman with 138 million Instagram followers “looks like a Pomeranian dog”, Stefano, 55, cruelly replied: “Hahahahahaha it’s true.”
In 2015 the designer and his business partner Domenico Dolce, 59, below right, who are both openly gay, faced a backlash for opposing adoptions by same-sex couples, drawing the wrath of Sir Elton John.
