Lauren Sánchez Proudly Watches Son Nikko on Dolce & Gabbana Runway

On Wednesday, July 3, the former television anchor Lauren Sánchez, 54, was seen smiling in the front row of the 2024 Dolce & Gabbana Alta Sartoria show in Sardinia, Italy, as her son, Nikko Gonzalez, made his debut on the fashion runway.

“Wait for proud mom moment,” Sánchez wrote in a caption above a clip of the show shared on her Instagram Stories. She tagged the 23-year-old and the luxury fashion brand.

In the video, Sánchez sat beside her fiancé Jeff Bezos. The couple held hands and smiled as Sánchez’s oldest child walked past the crowd. Sánchez shares Nikko with her ex-boyfriend, former NFL player Tony Gonzalez. After their separation, she and businessman Patrick Whitesell welcomed son Evan in 2006 and daughter Ella in 2008.

Bezos, 60, began dating Sánchez in 2019 and proposed to her in 2023. The former Amazon CEO has four kids of his own. Besides runway appearances, Nikko has often accompanied Gonzalez on the red carpet for movie premieres. The father-son duo also enjoys adventurous activities together.

Before Nikko’s fashion moment in Sardinia, Sánchez had one of her own.

The philanthropist and Emmy Award-winning journalist was photographed arriving at Italy’s Cagliari Airport on Tuesday, July 2, dressed head-to-toe in Dolce & Gabbana.

Walking next to Bezos, Sánchez looked effortlessly stylish in a printed lemon-yellow dress inspired by the Italian Riviera. Her strapless silk midi dress, covered in the house’s Majolica print, debuted in Dolce & Gabbana’s fall/winter 2024 women’s collection and is still available on the company’s website for $2,995.

Sánchez paired her outfit with $1,145 crystal-trimmed Dolce & Gabbana mules and added a $2,495 medium-size bag covered in the Majolica print as an accessory.
