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!
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!
