Dolce And Gabbana Owe More Than $1 Billion In Unpaid Taxes And Fines

Where's Dr. Evil when you need him? Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, the dynamic duo behind Dolce and Gabbana, owe more than $1 billion in unpaid taxes and fines relating to the 2004 sale of Dolce & Gabbana to holding company Gado Sri. The investigation into their tax evasion also will result in the indictment of additional accessors like Domenico's brother Alfonso, a shareholder, and director and board member Cristiana Ruella. $1 billion? Even considering how much some of their clothes cost, they better sell a lot of corset-top leotards to make up that sum. (WWD)
