Split at the seam Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana of Dolce & Gabbana, one of fashion's most high-profile couples, have gone their separate ways. Although their 20-year relationship has turned platonic, the two designers will continue their creative partnership. The Italians were one of the world's best known gay couples and have an enormous gay following. They have been known to speak freely about their private life as well as their business partnership. The couple shared the Villa Volpe, an opulent 19th-century palazzo in Milan. Apparently, they remain close and both have already found new love since the breakup. All four went on a safari holiday in Africa recently, where the designers got inspiration for their spring/summer 05 collection, which features python, zebra and leopard prints. Dolce & Gabbana have dressed celebrities such as Madonna, Kylie Minogue and Beyonce Knowles. Their fashion house is said to be worth more than US$645 million.

The 200-page tome includes more than 100 images of Asia's most beautiful women, including Maggie Cheung, Qi Qi, Sandy Lam, Kathy Chow and the late Anita Mui. Along with their comments, the limited-edition hardback comes with a music CD by composer Morton Wilson.
