I haven’t even smelled Dolce & Gabbana’s newest fragrance, Dolce, but I want to buy up all the bottles. (Which is totally insane, not least because I already have, like, 50 bottles of perfume at home.)
What would inspire this kind of “gotta-have-it” mania in me? This genius ad campaign, starring Canadian model Kate King.
I love literally everything about this video. Set in a Sicilian lemon grove, a farmhand is taken by King’s beauty — and, let’s be honest, who wouldn’t be? Her white lace dress is damn near perfect (seriously, I would get married in that dress), and her hair and makeup are classically gorgeous.
So back to this farmhand, whom I also love because he’s hot and Italian (I would marry him wearing aforementioned dress): He plucks a flower from the lemon tree and employs the help of adorable children to get it to King. It’s a little bit awkward, but very sweet — and very Dolce & Gabbana.
As I said, I’ve never even smelled this, but if this is what Dolce is all about, count me in.
Plus, I really love lemons.
