Mar/19/2015 at 01:40 PM ET

Celebrities playing fashion designers is not a new concept (all you have to do is click here to see that it’s now weirder not to have a clothing collection if you’re a celeb), but the latest famous face with design aspirations probably was not on your list of “next to launch a line.” Antonio Banderas announced today that he’s moving to London to study at the prestigious design school Central Saint Martins (whose alumni include the likes of Stella McCartney, Zac Posen and Alexander McQueen, just to name a few!).

Dolce & Gabbana Controversy: Celebrities Continue to Pile On

Mar/17/2015 at 04:38 PM ET

Despite Stefano Gabbana’s recent passionate defense of Domenico Dolce’s controversial statements about gay parents (to recap, Dolce told Panorama magazine, “We oppose gay adoptions. The only family is the traditional one … No chemical offsprings and rented uterus: Life has a natural flow, there are things that should not be changed”), the backlash against the designers continues. More celebrities have joined Elton John in his boycott of the designers, and Tuesday, a top D&G executive stepped down because of the statements, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Since John’s impassioned outcry against the designers on Saturday, in which he said, in part, “How dare you refer to my beautiful children as ‘synthetic,'” more celebrities have sided against the designers (themselves openly gay, and whose last runway show was a celebration of motherhood). Victoria Beckham showed support for her friend John, while other stars were more outspoken.

Murphy went one step further in his boycott, speaking openly to The Hollywood Reporter about how his refusal to work with the brand. “To sell the image of the family in their ad campaigns and recent fashion shows on top of that is pure hypocrisy,” he said. “Don’t use family in your advertising as a gimmick. It’s their prerogative to speak out — and it’s my prerogative not to use any of their clothes on my shows. Or buy them for myself either.”

And Cutrone shared one of Dolce & Gabbana’s most controversial ads from 2007 which appeared to portray an impending rape. “I GUESS SIMULATING GANG BANGS ARE FINE – BUT IVF AND SAME SEX MARRIAGE ARE NOT – LIFE ACCORDING TO @dolcegabbana,” she wrote.
