Familiar faces and surprise appearances at Dolce & Gabbana’s diverse runway show

Dolce & Gabbana always knows how to make noise on and off the runways. Previous shows featured celebrities and even members of royal families, and millennials who are making waves around the world. This year, the duo behind the iconic brand, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, took fashion to the next level with an inclusive runway that sought to make a statement. “Each one of us is the king or queen of our own lives!” Dolce declared.

Same sex couples, plus-sized models, the first black viscountess in Britain, Asians, and personalities from different backgrounds and orientations were included in a model line-up that celebrated unique identities. More than 150 looks were showcased on the runway, and there were plenty of showstopping models who showed that fashion is more than a form of self-expression—it’s life itself, as woven through different colors, symbolisms, and styles that were made by the storied fashion house. It’s also fitting that the theme of the show was DNA, as the designers’ own fingerprints were projected on screens behind the audience.

Here are some familiar and groundbreaking appearances on the runway:
