DOMENICO DOLCE AND STEFANO GABBANA INVITE YOU TO THE ULTIMATE HOLLYWOOD PARTY

New York- Come and mingle with the gods and goddesses of today’s Tinseltown in the pages of HOLLYWOOD: a book conceived by Dolce & Gabbana as an homage to the “Hollywood from which we always draw the imagery that informs our designs”. With HOLLYWOOD, the design team of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana present their own production with a truly all-star cast. Designed by Dream Project and published this fall by Assouline, HOLLYWOOD features over a hundred astonishing portraits of the most compelling cinematic celebrities of our time (Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law, Madonna, Jennifers Lopez and Aniston, Johnny Depp, Julianne Moore, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Nicolas Cage, Salma Hayek, Meg Ryan, Kate Winslet, Monica Bellucci to name a few). Capturing the glamour, power, seduction, romance, and red carpet moments of HOLLYWOOD’s brightest stars through the lenses of the world’s most exciting photographers including: Steven Meisel, Mario Testino, Patrick Demarchelier, Ellen Von Unwerth, Michel Comte, Gilles Bensimon and Sante D’Orazio. HOLLYWOOD focuses on the unforgettable leading men and women who filter fashion through their own mesmerizing personas. It is to these talented artists, that Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana pay tribute with HOLLYWOOD.

Once upon a time, the great movie stars lived only in the imaginations of two small Italian boys—one the son of a tailor; the other the son of a factory worker. Inspired by the incredible fantasies they saw on the big screen, each boy dreamed larger than life. Now, theirs is a marquee name in its own right. As internationally regarded as masters of glamour and sensuality themselves, Dolce & Gabbana set the trends with their unique, ever-evolving, take on fashion

An extraordinary retrospective of their impressive careers, HOLLYWOOD takes you behind-the-scenes and offers a sneak peak into the hearts and souls of Dolce & Gabbana. See how celluloid history is made from the inside out as HOLLYWOOD strips away the veil and reveals in exclusive interviews how stylists, make-up artists, hairdressers and photographers fuse fashion and film to form looks that last longer than a lifetime.

This lavish book delves deep into the heart of Hollywood as it chronicles the remarkable relationship between the stars and their styles. HOLLYWOOD For Dolce & Gabbana, it’s an affair to remember indeed. Actors become characters when they step onto the set. Each actress embodies the clothes the way she interprets a role. A garment is a line in the script; but the way each piece is put together makes the whole performance.

Hollywood is a constant for us because without it we would lack a language that is instant and universal.” – Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana

Dolce & Gabbana’s internationally celebrated collections have often actualized the fantasy of HOLLYWOOD; translating the dream factory into a reality all their own. HOLLYWOOD is a spirited and sincere “thank you” from Dolce & Gabbana to the town that has granted them, and audiences worldwide, sheer joy, wonder and excitement. This book allows everyone to bask in HOLLYWOOD’s glow; to be a part of the glitter; to have a klieg light shine brightly on their idols in an exhilarating explosion of what movie magic means to us all. Here’s looking at you, HOLLYWOOD, from Dolce & Gabbana.

Proceeds from HOLLYWOOD will go to charity: The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the Children’s Action Network.
