LONDON (AP) -- The grace and glamour of Italian fashion are on display in London -- and the attitude, too.
Designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana were guests at the launch of "The Glamour of Italian Fashion," a new exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum.
The duo behind Dolce & Gabbana praised Britain's "cool" style and designers like Vivienne Westwood, but were less enthusiastic about Victoria Beckham. Gabbana said the former Spice Girl had turned to fashion after doing "many, many, many different things."
He added "she's a designer but ... for us, she don't make (clothes) the same way like a fashion designer."
The exhibition, which opens Saturday, traces Italian style from the 1940s to the present day. It features designs from fashion houses including Armani, Prada, Gucci, Valentino and Versace.
