Dolce & Gabbana have once again been found guilty of tax evasion charges in an Italian court of appeals. The pair has been sentenced to 18 months in prison, two months less than their original 20-month sentence. But don’t worry—Dolce & Gabbana won’t serve any prison time, as their sentence is less than Italy’s 2-year minimum requirement for jail. They will be appealing this decision in Italy’s version of the Supreme Court. (WWD)



• Robin Givhan is returning to The Washington Post as their fashion writer this June. The Pulitzer Prize-winner left the publication back in 2010 to join Newsweek and The Daily Beast to write fashion stories. She since moved on to pen Fashion Week articles for New York Magazine‘s The Cut, although she’s been freelancing for WaPo this past year. (WWD)



• The Met Gala is nearly upon us, and more and more details are coming out as we approach the event’s May 5th date. The New York Post is reporting that Frank Ocean has been tapped to perform at the affair. Ocean attended last year, and if you remember, allegedly had the BEST NIGHT EVER with Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci. (NYP)
