Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana Hit The Silver Screen In Woody Allen's Latest Film

We already worship at the altar of Dolce & Gabbana so we rushed out to see their last theatrical turn as priests in the film Nine, released in 2009. Now we hear news that they are appearing in the latest offering To Rome With Love by cinematic god, Woody Allen. Holy smokes!

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana Hit The Silver Screen In Woody Allen's Latest Film

We got our hands on a pic of the two in action when Swide (Dolce & Gabbana's very own online magazine) tweeted it earlier this week. Here they are in a scene filmed at the Argentina Theatre in Rome - supposedly enjoying a performance of the opera Pagliacci - and we have to say we think they look very convincing as entranced audience members (though we're sure they're not used to sitting anywhere but the front row)! As you would expect, they look very smart in a pair of sharp suits! The eagle-eyed amongst you will spot Mr Allen himself [above] in a rare appearance on the other side of the camera and with a cast that also includes Ellen Page and Alec Baldwin we think they're in for some serious box office success.

Bagging the cameos must have been a dream come true for the design duo. Though best known for their eponymous fashion label - which delivers sexy Italian style to many a celeb (Kylie has always been a big fan and now the young Lily Collins is jumping on the bandwagon) - both have always been quick to declare cinema as their second love. Luckily for the film buffs, they named Woody Allen as one of their 'great directors' when interviewed for Swide back in 2009. Phew!

The film is slated for release in Italy on April 20th but we hope it will hit our shores soon because we can't wait to see them in action!

    Driving a $900,000 Porsche 918 Spyder to the future

    It’s more than just its inherent speed, or the whooshing noise that fills the cabin like a school choir jamming with James Hetfield. It’s what it represents in an industry full of skeptics. It’s a portal into the future – a time capsule left by some mad scientist born decades too soon. It’s something that shouldn’t exist. And yet it does.

    5 Unanswered Questions About Jesus

    As Christians worldwide gather for Easter to celebrate their belief in the death and rebirth of Jesus, researchers continue to delve into the mysteries that surround the man. The following are five questions about Jesus that, for now, at least, remain unanswered. In 2008, astronomer Dave Reneke argued that the Star of Bethlehem (a celestial event long associated with Jesus' birth) may have been Venus and Jupiter coming together to form a bright light in the sky. Other researchers have claimed that a similar conjunction between Saturn and Jupiter occurred in October of 7 B.C. Still others have claimed that Jesus was born in the spring, based on stories about shepherds watching over their flocks in fields on the night of Jesus' birth — something they would have done in the spring, not the winter.
