Monica Bellucci Named New Face of Dolce & Gabbana
The Italian model and actress has been named the new face of Dolce & Gabbana’s new make-up collection. Monica Bellucci has been friends with the designers for nearly twenty years. Great choice!

Stefano Gabbana says, “We are very old friends of Monica’s. We must have met in 1989 or 1990…We really grew up together.”

I think Stefano Gabbana should stop dropping dates like 1989 or 1990, because it kind of reveals that Monica Bellucci is old. I’m just saying, as long as he doesn’t drop the phrase, “back in my day…” then we’re good to go.

“She’s a fantastic woman, very sunny, very feminine. It was like working with a family member. She’s our icon, she’s the emblem of Dolce & Gabbana,” says Gabbana.

As for Ms. Bellucci, she is excited to front the make-up brand, “Lipstick says a lot about a woman. It is her most traditional gesture. I remember my grandmother even though she wasn’t a young woman anymore, would always take her mirror and put on some red lipstick before going to church. Of course it wasn’t to show off, but it was a feminine gesture for her own pleasure.”

Bellucci has taken the modeling duties from D&G beauty’s last face, “Like, Crazy” actress Felicity Jones.

“The idea for the collection was to create different shades, different colors depending on your mood of the day, your state of mind,” says Bellucci.
