The NY Daily News on Madonnas new shoot

Madonna washes dishes and eats pasta while wearing designer dresses in new Dolce & Gabbana ads

Madonna will wash dishes, but only for Dolce & Gabbana.

The luxe Italian brand's new spring/summer 2010 campaign features a very domesticated Madge doing everyday household chores.

Inspired by Italian neorealism cinema, the prints have the Material Girl playing a fantasy housewife: prepping dinner, eating pasta and rinsing plates while wearing expensive, low-cut designer dresses.

"To have Madonna in our campaign is a dream come true," designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana tell the Vanity Fair's Italian edition, where the pictures debut this week.

"She loved the collection," added Gabbana. "She is passionate and impressively knowledgeable about Italian cinema."

Celebrity photographer Stephen Klein took the glossy black and white shots in New York City on Nov. 6.

Speaking from the shoot, Gabbana told Just Jared.com, "The campaign with Madonna is beautiful . . . We're very, very tired but very happy as well."

That's gotta be music to the 51-year-old singer's ears after she was replaced as the face of Louis Viutton by a younger model earlier this month.

So does the pop diva really do the dishes at home?

"Certainly," says Gabbana. "She's a very practical woman."

He even argues that he's seen the famously fickle eater scarf down spaghetti, despite reports that she has banned everything from dairy to sugar from her pantry at times, and once survived on a strictly macrobiotic diet.

"Of course [she eats pasta]," he says, "and she can allow herself to with all the exercise she does!"
