All in the Family: Dolce & Gabbana's Fall 2012 ads.

Food, family, frocks, and festivities? It must be Dolce & Gabbana campaign time.

For Fall 2012, the Italian label is picking up where its Spring 2012 ad campaign left off by once again casting actress/makeup muse Monica Bellucci and model Bianca Balti alongside an all-Italian pack of "family members" for a feisty shoot lensed, as before, by Giampaolo Sgura.

This time around Bianca Brandolini joins the action as the ads depict a spirited slice of Italian family life, one filled with accordions, little boys in newsboy caps, emphatic arm gestures, and old ladies clad in black.

And though the sassy scenes are equal parts entertaining and visually stunning, we'd be lying if we didn't admit that our attention was stolen by Dolce & Gabbana's Fall 2012 collection, including floral-print handbags, a saucy animal-print cape paired with a gorgeous white lace dress, decadent gold brocade trimmings, and Bellucci's bellissimo black lace number worn over a black bodysuit and accessorized with garter stockings and a bag in leopard print and blood-red velvet.

Any chance these guys would adopt us?
