There's no escaping the long arm of the law!
Years of court battles have ultimately culminated in a guilty verdict for designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana for tax evasion.
Judge Antonella Brambilla sentenced the designers to 20 months in prison (which is like a decade in fashion years!) following a three-hour jury meeting in a Milan court on Wednesday.
Of course, the designers and their legal team are expected to appeal since they've always maintained their innocence.
But even if they do end up getting thrown behind bars, will it really be so bad? Martha Stewart did her time and even got a very special poncho made for her by an inmate!
Maybe Domenico and Stefano will be allowed to take their sewing kits with them and make lace-trimmed shirts for their fellow inmates!
And who knows, they just might come out of the ordeal having experienced a thousand life-changing epiphanies and release a prison-inspired collection that will revolutionize the fashion industry!
Anything is possible!
