Dolce e Gabbana, those big opera fans that OC runs into quite often at la Scala, have given today on Milan's runways a sweet shoutout to the great Maria -- she appears on t-shirts by the duo for the D&G collection, and other prints by the duo replicate vintage opera playbills.

Stefano and Domenico spoke to the media after the show and regretted "that la Scala did not give us the chance to use their logo. But la Fenice is perfect! Our style is heavily influenced by Visconti and he shot 'Senso' at la Fenice...".
A spokesperson for the Milanese opera house told news agency ANSA that "we didn't have enough time... a review process is necessary whenever la Scala's logo is licensed".
