We love that the big fashion brands surrender to real women and that their campaigns don’t advocate unattainable and idealized references. The new Dolce & Gabbana collection has not gone unnoticed because in addition to having a spectacular protagonist, the Italian-Spanish actress Vanessa Incontrada, has found her inspiration in the wonderful paintings by Rubens.
The Rubens-inspired campaign stars Vanessa Incontrada
The real beauty has been installed in the sewing workshops of the most prestigious firms. There is no fashion brand that does not give in to thinking of all types of women, regardless of their physical form. And we love it. This time, we have been captivated by the new Dolce & Gabbana collection which, in addition to having an exceptional protagonist for its campaign, the Italian-Spanish actress Vanesa Incontrada, has one of the most colorful inspirations of the season thanks to Rubens’ paintings. And of course, the availability of sizes is very wide, for all women whose beauty is not measured by their body.
The classic beauty that Pedro Pablo Rubens displayed on his canvases was that of a curvy woman. That exuberance energized by color has been the inspiration they have taken from Dolce & Gabbana to bring out a new collection for real, curvy women. This does not mean that they have eliminated size 36 from their repertoire, but that they have expanded their production to the Italian size 54 (which is 50 in Spain).
It is not the first time that the firm has made a collection including large sizes. They have been doing it since 2019 because in the Italian house they adore feminine sensuality in all its forms. “Beauty is not a question of size, it is a state of mind, an attitude, that something that makes each woman charming and unique”, they tell us from Dolce & Gabbana. In this way, and with the help of Vanessa Incontrada, this new collection pays another tribute to women, to the feminine form and to beauty at its best.
The actress, model and presenter born in Spain and living in Italy perfectly represents that beauty without measures that Rubens captured in his paintings. Surrounded by a baroque halo, Vanesa Incontrada wraps herself in flowing fabrics full of colorful patterns to become a real muse. She is a benchmark of feminine beauty for all women, regardless of whether her measurements do not fit the typical 36 that classic models exhibit. Although for classic this inspiration that could not be more successful in the times we live in.
