Celebrities wear a lot of clothes at award shows and other public events. The outfits cost thousands of dollars, and celebrities usually work with stylists to borrow the items from brands. Dolce and Gabbana is a fashion house that’s loved by celebrities for its powerful and confident designs. The brand celebrated its tenth anniversary of Alta Moda in Venice, Italy, with many celebrities gracing the red carpet to watch the show dressed in the designer’s finest outfits for the occasion.

Dwayne Johnson at the 2023 Grammy Awards

The Rock has been a big fan of Dolce & Gabbana ever since the duo’s first collection launched in 1985. Their brand identity has a universal resonation with people across all walks of life because it represents the importance of family, the impact of home, and the pursuit of one’s dream. It also believes in the power of minimalism and luxury by threading these opposing themes to create a united narrative. The designers’ brand identity also resonates with celebrities because it embodies the idea that a strong woman can still be feminine and chic at the same time. This sense of femininity has made the brand an icon for many iconic icons, including Madonna, the first woman to wear Dolce & Gabbana’s “girlie show” collection in 1987. When Madonna was honored for her achievement in music, the designers gave her a series of dresses they designed. It was this moment that helped to solidify Dolce & Gabbana’s place in the fashion industry. As for Dwayne Johnson, he was the star of the night at the 2023 Grammy Awards when he took the stage to present an award to Adele.
