Dolce Gabbana Muse Exults Boob Tape

Giovanna Battaglia in Stephen Sprouse at Cannes 2011

Boobs slippage is nothing new, especially at 4am, when slightly (or severely) inebriated, and posing for Facebook photos in daring attire. Giovanna Battaglia, Sicilian goddess, resident muse and consultant of Dolce Gabbana, fashion director of Vogue Gioiello, editor of L’Uomo, blog favorite—-my favorite, proudly exulted the master player behind countless naughty but nice ensembles: Topstick.

Originally used for wigs/hairpieces, it’s the go-to for keeping things in place whether rain, sleet, 120 degree studio lights….

This vintage Stephen Sprouse number would have literally fallen away had it not been for this modern wonder. Fittingly, with blogs including and WhoWhatWear ga-ga over the look, Giovanna committed to repeating it. “I’m going to have to tape my [boobs] in—now that was a top-secret process. I can’t share the details.” But we will. It’s topstick.
