Dolce & Gabbana isn’t quitting its courtship of millennial influencers anytime soon. On Saturday, A-list offspring, social media celebs and the 20-something It crowd flocked to Milan to fill the front row and storm the catwalk at the Italian fashion house’s Fall 2017 men’s show.
Opening the show was Internet sensation Cameron Dallas, who boasts 17.4 million followers on Instagram, 5.2 million on YouTube, and his own Netflix show titled Chasing Cameron.
Following Dallas, the runway featured Presley Gerber (Cindy Crawford’s son), Rafferty Law (Jude Law’s son), Brandon Thomas Lee (Pamela Anderson’s son), Levi Dylan (Bob Dylan’s grandson), along with Dolce & Gabbana darlings Luka Sabbat and Lucky Blue Smith.
The It-power continued with some of the millennial generation’s hottest rising stars, including rapper Tinie Tempah; Chase Hill (model Taylor Hill’s brother); Diggy Simmons (son of Run DMC’s Rev Run); actor Will Peltz; Vine star Neels Visser; street style photographer Lee Oliveira; blogger Marcel Floruss; digital influencer Pelayo Díaz; London socialite Carlo Sestini; Brit vlogger Jim Chapman; Chinese model Chen Xuedong; Ahmad Daabas of Dubai’s AMDmode.com; actor Avan Jogia (also Zoey Deutch’s former beau); and YouTube favorites Juanpa Zurita, Marcus Butler and Sergio Carvajal, among others.
Leading the female lineup was Sofia Richie, along with Sistine and Sophia Stallone (Sylvester Stallone’s teenage daughters); Pyper America, Starlie Cheyenne, and Daisy Clementine (Lucky Blue Smith’s sisters); Immy Waterhouse (sister to Suki Waterhouse); Sonia Ben Ammar (ex-girlfriend of Brooklyn Beckham); Lori Harvey (Steve Harvey’s step-daughter); Stefanie Giesinger (girlfriend to Marcus Butler); German fashion blogger Caroline Daur; La Rouge Belle founder and creative director Lala Rudge; and model Yumi Dondo.
Performing at the event was pop star Austin Mahone.
The theme of the collection was royalty—which was evident from the influential casting as well as the regal, fanciful wares—was underscored by the #DGMillennials #DGPrinces hashtags employed on Instagram.
“These are the new generation, we liked the idea of adding ordinary people who have become famous thanks to the web,” said designer Stefano Gabbana.
