Kim Kardashian’s back in blond bombshell mode.
The shapewear mogul stars in Dolce & Gabbana’s spring 2023 ad campaign, modeling a series of the sultry styles she curated for the collection.
In the steamy snaps, 42-year-old Kardashian lounges in a glamorous Italian villa in looks ranging from leopard catsuits to corseted bodysuits styled sans pants.
Photographed by famed duo Mert & Marcus in black in white, the campaign “channels a feeling of intimacy,” as Kardashian and the fashion house wrote on Instagram.
The reality superstar unveiled her collaboration with Dolce & Gabbana at Milan Fashion Week in September, showing a series of reinterpreted archival designs from the luxury label in a palette of primarily black, metallics and animal print.
During the runway show, a slow motion black-and-white video of Kardashian eating spaghetti played in the background, and some models even wore “KIM” chokers, a twist on Dolce & Gabbana’s iconic necklaces that spelled out “SEX.”
“I always loved the beautiful, quintessential 90s & 2000’s looks… feminine, bold, they always made me feel so confident & glamorous. You could feel the moment you put on a D & G dress that the intention when it was designed & made was to celebrate the woman wearing it. To make her feel like she could do anything, be anything, own her confidence & her beauty,” Kardashian wrote on Instagram after the show.
While designer Domenico Dolce once famously called the Kardashians “the most cheap people in the world” on Instagram, to say the brand’s made amends with the family would be a massive understatement.
In addition to partnering with Kim on an entire collection, Dolce & Gabbana hosted Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker’s wedding in Italy in 2022, dressing the whole family (including the bride and groom) in new and archival designs from the house.
