Dolce & Gabbana under fire for selling shoes printed with 'Thin & Gorgeous'


Luxury Italian designers Dolce & Gabbana is under fire once again. A few days ago, one-half of the talented duo Stefano Gabbana shared a photo of a shoe that's since caused an uproar on social media.

The original illustration was shared by Japanese illustrator Jumpei Kawamura on Instagram, but the $973 embellished leather shoe is part of Dolce & Gabbana's Fall/Winter collection.

"I'm thin & gorgeous" is clearly printed in big blue lettering, created to "reflect millennial style". While the rest of the shoe is decorated with cute slogans, colorful hearts and music notes, this one seems to have missed the mark.

Social media agreed.

Critics called the shoe 'offensive'. Gabbana responded to his commenters with some harsh words.

This comes months after the designer publicly body shamed Lady Gaga after her Superbowl halftime show.
