Dolce & Gabbana and Monica Bellucci

A long time personal friend of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, Monica is the symbol of the Italian beauty of our time, personifying passion, voluptuous sensuality and breathtaking beauty in films such as “The Matrix – Reloaded”, “The Passion of the Christ” and “Don’t Look Back”, as well as French language films such as “L’Appartement”, for which she was nominated to the César Awards.

As admirers of Monica’s beauty and carefree sensuality, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana found it only fitting to celebrate her remarkable magnetism with her very own limited edition Dolce & Gabbana Make Up collection, The Monica Lipstick Collection, launching in stores in May 12.

With her famed fulsome lips, impeccable complexion and daring, expressive eyes she exudes the irony, mystery and charm that comprises the very essence of the Dolce & Gabbana woman.

“We love Monica and have worked with her many times over the past 20 years. Her beauty is timeless,” says Domenico Dolce. “She expresses perfectly the Dolce & Gabbana woman,” adds Stefano Gabbana, “She is ravishing – a true Italian icon.”

“I’m delighted to be collaborating with Domenico and Stefano on Dolce & Gabbana The Make Up,” says Monica. “I have always adored the aesthetic of Dolce & Gabbana and it’s so exciting to be involved with their creative process.”
