Just when we thought it couldn’t get any sexier than Scarlett Johansson as the voluptuous face of Dolce & Gabbana Make Up, there's a new (Italian) bombshell in town: Monica Bellucci. With her mysterious eyes and pillowy lips, it's easy to see why the iconic film star was chosen as the newest muse for Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana's luxury makeup line. Inspired by her confident beauty, the design duo has created the new Monica Lipstick Collection: A flattering line of six creamy lipsticks that capture the star's many intriguing qualities, from her natural beauty to her red-carpet glamour.
Brought to life by legendary makeup artist Pat McGrath, the six shades range from Natural Monica, a creamy nude shade, to Attractive Monica, a deep and kissable rouge. McGrath sought to create a line that flatters a wide range of skin tones, so that women of all complexions can get that Italian-film-star pout. We've got the exclusive on this behind-the-scenes video starring the gorgeous Bellucci and we’re seriously inspired by her smoky, sensual look. Sorry ScarJo, but not even you can out-sexy an Italian.
Dolce & Gabbana Make Up Monica Lipstick Collection, $32 each, available at Saks Fifth Avenue.
