The couturier, who has often made headlines with his scandalous statements and feuds with celebrities, stepped into another controversy with his comment.
When The Catwalk Italia shared a collage of five red dresses worn by Gomez on Instagram, Gabbana commented in Italian "E proprio brutta!" which roughly translates to "She's really ugly!"
The designer also responded to a user's comment, agreeing that the singer "looks like a Pomeranian dog".
In the past, Gabbana has been in the eye of storm for commenting on a photo of Kate Moss wearing a black Saint Laurent romper, simply writing, "No".
