Dolce & Gabbana have won the Spring/Summer 2015 campaigns. Every other fashion label go home.

This season, designers Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce incorporated bold Spanish influences into their usual Sicilian inspirations to come up with a collection, and a campaign, that is a riot of red and black, flamenco and matadors.

But the best part is their choice of campaign faces. Because starring alongside models Bianca Balti, Vittoria Ceretti, Irina Sharipova, Blanca Padilla and Spanish bullfighter José Maria Manzanares are three 'nonnas', who rock all-black as well as anyone. 

In a video directed by Domenico Dolce himself, the group flamenco dance in a cobblestoned street, with the nonnas pulling moves that put the models to shame, and even getting a little risque by flashing their knee-highs. 

Age really is just a number. Especially when you're wearing a crown with red carnations.
