Dolce & Gabbana Makeup Starring Scarlett Johansson
This February, the bodacious blonde celeb will be vamping a la Marilyn Monroe in her boudoir to mark the launch of Dolce & Gabbana's new makeup line. "We see makeup as another thing for women, like a dress, Stefano Gabbana recently told WWD. "We worked on the makeup line like we work on a clothing collection — you can change makeup like you can change your clothes, depending on your mood."
The color palette was inspired by the deep burgundy of the Dahlia flower, the intense cerulean hues of the Mediterranean, and the stark black volcanic sands of Stromboli (where D&G like to summer). Collaborating with makeup maven Pat McGrath, the lushly-pigmented line includes three looks: Sensually Natural (understated neutrals), Provocative Eyes (smoky eye & pale lip), and Lustful Lips (tres silver screen siren with dark ruby lips and nails). "For me, lipstick is one of the most important things. When I see a woman made-up, I look straight to the lips."
In addition to glamorous, shiny gold packaging, the line also features a retro rose scent. "We noticed that lipsticks on the market took away their fragrance, but we wanted to create makeup with a scent. Domenico and I remember when we were children and opened our mother’s handbags — the scent of her lipstick trailed out."
