Monica Bellucci embodies the sensuality of the Italian woman, so it’s no wonder she is one of Dolce & Gabbana’s muses and the inspiration for their new lipstick collection.

The collection, co-designed by legendary makeup artist Pat McGarth, is simply named ‘Monica’.

“Lipstick is the most valuable weapon in a woman’s makeup kit,” said the sultry 47-year-old Italian beauty.

“It has the power to transform the appearance and mood of the person wearing it, and, at the same time, arouses the admiration of everybody else.”

The limited edition collection consists of six lipsticks that range from ‘Italian Monica’, a red hot shade, to ‘Only Monica’, a soft petal pink shade.

This new formula has skin conditioning ingredients that are said to leave your lips feeling soft, and looking plump and voluptuous.
