The celebration of their all-male brand didn’t stop a bevy of fashion-loving ladies from stepping out to show their support though.
Making an elegant appearance in the Italian city at the fashion house's evening celebrations was Bob Geldof's girl Peaches, who arrived on the arm of her new boyfriend, Eli Roth.
The 21-year-old made her first public European appearance with the American film director, 38, wearing a Dolce & Gabbana black fringe dress, previously seen on Penelope Cruz during her promotional trail with Nine in Rome.
Seemingly, black was the theme of the night, with a number of guests adhering to the look.
Having worn a form-fitting burgundy gown to the spring/summer 2011 catwalk show earlier that day, Rachel Weisz sparkled in a sequin strapless Dolce & Gabbana mini dress with black strappy sandals.
Monica Bellucci, who welcomed her second child, daughter Leonie, one month ago, looked nothing short of spectacular in a black satin and lace gown.
And Annie Lennox – the singer provided live music to accompany the label's fashion show – went for a black suit teamed with a slogan t-shirt as she arrived for the evening bash with her two daughters.
In stark contract to the tones embraced by her peers, Camila Alves wore a white chiffon D&G cocktail dress with jewel detailing, while Eva Herzigova chose a leopard print ensemble.
Gentlemen attending the fashion show, and the celebrations afterwards, included a very dapper Morgan Freeman and Matthew McConaughey.
