According to Page Six, the designers — who were found guilty of tax evasion and sentenced to one year and six months in jail — called up Vogue editor-in-chief and Conde Nast artistic director Anna Wintour to get the story killed. However, Wintour said no, but did attend D&G's Alta Moda show in Capri last month to reconcile the situation, per Page Six sources.

If there's anyone who can help save a fashion crisis, it's Wintour.
