Dolce and Gabbana’s Venice show proved memorable for all the wrong reasons as a sudden storm left models and celebrities scurrying to stay dry when the heavens opened.

Stars including Dame Helen Mirren and Kourtney Kardashian had to huddle from the rain in St Mark’s Square on Monday.

The Italian designers even used their own social media accounts to share images of the soggy catwalk.

Dramatic videos posted online captured the models continuing to walk the catwalk despite the freak weather.

Hailstones pelted the models as they sauntered down the open-air catwalk.

It was reported the fashion firm had brought the show forward by an hour in a bid to avoid the expected bad weather.

Social media was awash with amused comments about the freak weather in Venice hitting the fashion show.

Among the comments, people wrote: “Some of my favourite internet content right now is watching the videos of celebs getting pelted by hail at the Dolce & Gabbana menswear show in Venice....”

Others added: “This video is from celebrity stylist Brad Goreski... God sending hail down on the Dolce & Gabbana show will forever be funny, they really said “stop this nonsense!”...but those poor models, i hope they are all ok...”

“Me? The Hail at the Dolce & Gabbana Show... Scandal at the Dolce Gabbana show yesterday in Venice Italy, a few of my friends where walking and watching the runway and the models where screaming OW!...”

“Huge hail snow balls hitting ALL in attendance… The @dolcegabbana show. Having the model and guest get railed by hail and not stop the show and have guest laugh at the models when getting pelted....how much more trash can you be.”
