Sutton Stracke caught the fashion police’s attention when she posted a photo of one of her favorite dresses, which she wore on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Known for her eclectic style, the 50-year-old SUTTON boutique owner is also personal friends of famed Italian design duo Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, having met them at a fashion show in Italy, per Showbiz Cheat Sheet.
In 2020 Strake opposite the Paper magazine, “Dolce & Gabbana is the best. They give me tiaras for my birthday every year. Its so funny.”
“The thing about Dolce & Gabbana is that they really put you in the spotlight,” she added. “They bring you into the family. .. You fall in love with Stefano and Domenico and then you fall in love with Italy and then you fall in love with clothes. It’s a true, true love affair. …They approach their customers differently than most couture houses and I found that very refreshing. What’s not to love about them? You are so amazing.”
Fans slammed Sutton Stracke’s D&G dress
During her first season of RHOBH, Stracke wore a lot of designer outfits, but it was her season finale dress that really caught the attention of fans. According to Worn on TVStracke’s white lace floral print graduation dress was a Dolce & Gabbana dress from their Spring 2019 collection.
Stracke revived the dress for May 2022 Instagram post she showed this at an event posing with Dolce. “I will always cherish this dress!!” she captioned the picture. “Not only about my karaoke moment with Dolce and Gabbana, but also about my first last party dress for #rhobh Can’t wait for #altamoda this summer.”
But some of Stracke’s followers weren’t fans of the throwback look. One commenter called the dress “the worst” and another described it as “Spongebobish”.
“What on earth are you wearing Sutton!? BC only, it costs a lot of $$ doesn’t mean it looks good!!!” a commenter wrote.
“Sorry, this is a younger woman/girl dress,” another wrote. “It’s haute couture and would generally only be worn on the runway or on special occasions. It’s not age appropriate for you. Especially with the tennis shoes. For real? It’s also fleeting. Sorry but true.”
“Ridiculous looking dress and probably cost a fortune,” another interfered. “Doesn’t Sutton have any true friends to tell her the truth!”
“Would you wear it if it was just a Walmart dress?” Another asked the RHOBH star.
Another follower asked Stracke to “reconsider and reflect on the comments D&G has made over the years.”
The famous designers have a controversial history, per fashionistathis includes racially insensitive advertising campaigns and offensive behavior on social media.
Stracke previously defended the controversial duo, tell paper“All I can say is that they have a true heart and would never try to hurt anyone. That would never be their endgame. I think there might be a language barrier. I don’t think they have a bad bone in their body. And it was just misconstrued or tangled up.”
Sutton Stracke is no longer bothered by comments about her fashion
Stracke has dealt with fashion critics since she has been with RHOBH. 2022 has them said Page Six that she is no longer bothered by the comments of her critics.
“It was hurtful at first when people didn’t seem to understand my fashion choices,” she told the outlet in May 2022. “I love couture — and couture is all about slow fashion and meticulous detail.” It doesn’t apply to many people. People don’t always understand it because it’s a little bit different – but I’m a little bit different.”
The Bravo star also clapped back at those who suggested she had to “fire” her stylist.
“I am my stylist,” she revealed. “I style myself and wouldn’t have it any other way. Just because I don’t feel comfortable if I don’t love it. I don’t like it when people tell me what to wear.”
