Fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana were sentenced to one year and six months each in jail on Wednesday, over charges of hiding hundreds of millions of euros from Italian tax authorities. Italy's appeals court upheld a conviction given last June to the pair, who are as famous as the stars they dress, for allegedly using Luxembourg holding company Gado to avoid paying taxes on royalties of about 1 billion euros, or $1.38 billion.
