Dolce & Gabbana Sentenced To 18 Months In Jail!

dolce gabbana guilty

The Dolce & Gabbana tax evasion saga is finally over. Maybe.

After hours of deliberation that concluded today, a three-judge panel in Italy has decided to uphold the guilty verdict reached last year in June.

The designers, as well as accountant Luciano Patellito, have been sentenced to 18 months in jail (reduced from the original 20 month sentence).

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana's lawyers appealed that decision immediately, but we're not sure if they have any recourse left at this point.

Although, according to Italian law, they won't even have to serve any of that time anyway (since it's under the two-year benchmark requiring actual jail time be served). They'll just have to keep their noses clean during those 18 months to avoid landing behind bars for real.

It's like a two-strike law or something!

Stay on your best behavior, guys!

And they didn't hold back!

Even though they're friends with Posh, they made their true feelings about the former Spice Girl's designs known. They said:

Dolce & Gabbana Could Be Forced Into Closure Due To Tax Evasion Fines!

Dolce & Gabbana may no longer exist if they're forced to pay their hefty tax evasion fine!

They say two things are certain in life: death and taxes.

But we never would've guessed that taxes could mean certain death for Dolce & Gabbana!!!

Domenico Dolce and Sefano Gabbana are in an ongoing legal battle over tax evasion charges after being found guilty last month.

In addition to the 20 month jail sentence (which they'll never serve), the designing duo were fined $440 million, but if the verdict is not overturned and they're forced to pay up, they’ll have to shut down their world-wide fashion empire!!

Dolce seems to have already given up, saying:

Dolce & Gabbana Probably Won't Serve A Single Day In Prison After All!

Dolce & Gabbana probably won't go to prison after all!

Rejoice and praise the benevolent fashion gods!

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana may have been found guilty of tax evasion and sentenced to 20 months in prison on Wednesday, but since everything is better in Italy, they won't have to spend a single day behind bars!

According to Italian law, sentences that are less than two years usually don't have to be served, and are more like suspended sentences, but if the designers are found guilty of any criminal acts again during that time period, they will

Kylie Minogue Wears D&G Convict Couture In New York

Kylie Minogue shows off her legs in NYC

How appropriate!

Kylie Minogue gave Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana a preview of their future jailhouse wardrobe while out in New York City on Wednesday.

The singer looked convict chic on her way to a meeting in a black and white striped dress from the possibly-soon-to-be incarcerated designing duo.

Kylie also slipped on the same "arrest me red" Christian Louboutin heels she wore earlier in the day and carried her new favorite white D&G handbag.

See Domenico and Stefano? If Kylie can look this good in your jailbird stripes, so can you!

Dolce & Gabbana Found GUILTY Of Tax Evasion! Sentenced To 20 Months In Prison!

Designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana get sentenced to 20 months in prison!

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!

Dolce & Gabbana Fined $440 MILLION For Evading Taxes!

dolce gabbana fined 440 million dollars evading taxes

So much for a happy Easter!

After having a long, drawn out legal battle with Italy's Tax Commission, Dolce & Gabbana have been fined $440.2 million, plus interest, for evading taxes.

The latest ruling upholds the November 2011 sentence and denies the duo’s appeal of the case.

However, Domenico and Stefano can still avoid the fine if they decide to appeal, and since they've constantly denied the accusations, it's only a matter of time before they file paperwork.

But even if they do pony up the $440 million, their worries are far from over because Italy’s Internal Revenue Agency still has a claim against the designers that’s being dealt with in a Milan court.

In other words…to be continued forever and ever and ever.
