The first images of Dolce & Gabbana's new fall campaign featuring Madonna have been released—and anyone who's said that Madonna can't act, well, here she is in the biggest role of her life (or, at least, the most imaginative).

Photographed by Steven Klein in Harlem, the black and white pictures portray Madonna as a glamorized housewife—at the local market, at lunch with the family, with the baby in the bedroom, and with granny the seamstress.

"It's a testament that fashion is part of life and not vice versa," said Domenico Dolce. The campaign debuts Stateside on July 13.
