27-year-old Felicity Jones, whose filmography includes over 20 roles, will be the new face of Dolce&Gabbana cosmetics line. The designers of the brand have recently issued the following statement:
Representing a heady mix of sensuality, confidence and beauty, Felicity Jones offers a sense of divine contradiction. Classically beautiful yet modern in attitude, her audacious gaze is impossible to ignore.
The start of the advertising campaign with Felicity is scheduled for early January, but it is still unclear whether she will replace Scarlett Johansson, a long-standing muse of the brand, or, alternatively, will come to “assist” her.
By the way, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are going through hard times: the designers have to appear in court because they are charged with tax evasion – and not for the first time!
Last year, the two designers were accused of not declaring the goods sold at the price of 1,1 billion dollars. In April, the case was halted due to lack of evidence. But now it will be started again for the reasons to be revealed in January. The holidays seem to be rather tough for Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana!
It is reported that they should pay the taxes reaching the sum of about 562 million dollars. If the judge decides to go on with the case, the designers will have only a few options: to pay the fine to avoid a lengthy trial, or to settle the case in the court trying to speed up the verdict, calling for witnesses and presenting documents.
Stefano has written on Twitter recently:
Thieves !!!!!! they don’t know what to do to lift our money.
The entry was deleted later, but instead of it a new message appeared, in which Gabbana thought about his possible leaving the country:
So it’s true that they can do what they want in Italy … whatever they feel like. It might be better to leave.
While the fashion ladies are sighing with sympathy, the network users, who are indifferent to the fashion industry, support the designers’ idea of moving to some other place in the world. After paying all the taxes, of course!
