These days, models are expected to stomp down the runway braless (why ruin a nice sheer sweater or harness top with silly things like underwear, really?) but Dolce & Gabbana would never do such a thing. "When we dress the model for a show, first we give them the bra, the satin, the lace. It's all about respect for the body. You never see a woman from the south of Italy without a bra. Never!" Domenico Dolce told British Harper's Bazaar. And yes, that bra really should be lace, according to Stefano Gabbana: "[When a woman is] wearing a suit, the first thing I think is, 'Is she wearing lace underwear?'" In other news, the designers encourage corsets and high heels, but not nose jobs. "I love a woman with a real nose," said Gabbana. "A nose is character. Many women want to change their noses, but for me, I'm fascinated."
