Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Monica Bellucci hit the red carpet at the Kursaal Palace during the 60th San Sebastian Film Festival for the ‘Fasle Kargadan’ (Rhino Season) premiere in Spain last night.

The Italian actress took a night off wearing her favourite colour, black, but this look is unmistakably Dolce & Gabbana.

Her slate-grey lace ¾-length-sleeve gown with a lace-accented chiffon skirt, as always, fits her like a glove.

Monica’s styling was simple: a miniature Miss Sicily bag, tousled waves and barely there makeup.

I’m ignoring the platform shoes.

Congratulations to Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana for winning ‘Designer of the Year’ at last night’s GQ Men of the Year 2012 awards.

The Italian design duo were presented with the award by their close personal friend, muse and compatriot Monica Bellucci (left). Model and socialite, Bianca Brandolini D’Adda (right), was also in attendance.

Naturally, both women wore Dolce & Gabbana, though Monica chose a classic floor-length black lace gown, which she paired with a matching black clutch and long, loose tresses.

Bianca opted for a more daring look in a beaded neutral mini and strappy silver sandals. A delicate bracelet and fishtail braid completed the ensemble.

Monica Bellucci couldn’t be a more perfect ambassador for Dolce & Gabbana.

The stunning Italian actress, who is the face of Dolce & Gabbana’s voluptuous lipstick plus she appears in the Fall 2012 ad campaign, has attended three events during the Ischia Global Film Festival in Ischia, Italy, wearing nothing but Dolce & Gabbana.

She attended a press conference on Wednesday wearing a colourful floral-print top and skirt with white slingbacks. I was shocked to see the statuesque beauty, who loves to wear black, wearing such a summery look.

Later the same day she attended the Regina Isabella Hotel Party wearing a black top with white polka dots which she styled with a floral-print knee-length skirt and the designer’s classic ‘Miss Sicily’ bag.

Yesterday she opted for a simple black-and-white look teaming a high-waisted textured skirt from the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012 collection with a simple white short-sleeved shirt.

On this occasion black peep-toes and a miniature ‘Miss Sicily’ bag accessorized her look.

The final look is my favourite; it’s classic Monica.

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.

Shop the Dolce & Gabbana Monica Voluptuous lipstick collection exclusively at Saks.com.

The front row at Dolce & Gabbana shows are just as anticipated as the collection itself.

The celebrities make their way down from the VIP lounge, to the end of the runway where they are papped by the photographers one by one.

Sonam Kapoor: I was honoured that Sonam wanted to meet me before the show as I had missed her in Paris. She was happy to discover that we were the same height. It’s a rare that I meet women my height so I shared her joy. She looked amazing wearing a sunflower and onion Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012 fitted dress. “I’m wearing vegetables”, she joked. “You wear it well”, I replied. Red lips matched her red Dolce & Gabbana bag and gold peep-toes completed her look.

Dame Helen Mirren: The grand Dame was almost unrecognisable at the Dolce & Gabbana show. When word got around that it was her, people were in disbelief. Mostly because she continues to defy her years looking very sprightly wearing head-to-toe Dolce & Gabbana. She opted for floral instead of fruit, teaming her fitted dress with a beige short sleeve coat from the Spring 2012 collection. An animal print Miss Sicily bag completed the look.

Monica Bellucci: The actress sent the photographers crazy; as you can well imagine. The woman who is archetypal Dolce & Gabbana woman and face of the Spring 2012 campaign looked stunning wearing a Dolce & Gabbana polka dot dress. She really took my breath away with her presence and beauty.

It was mostly an all black affair on the red carpet for the “Dolce & Gabbana’s Men’s 20th Anniversary” held during Menswear Fashion Week in Milan on Saturday.

Monica Bellucci looked like panther purring in her black satin and lace Dolce & Gabbana gown.

Peaches Geldof wore the same Dolce & Gabbana fringed dress from the Spring 2010 collection we’ve seen thrice before on the red carpet.

Penelope Cruz, Dita von Teese and Eastenders actress Emer Kenny have all worn this dress with varying levels of success.

With her hair worn up in a chic updo Rachel Weisz dazzled on the red carpet wearing a sequin strapless Dolce & Gabbana mini dress with black strappy sandals.

Juliette Binoche wore a black satin ruched Dolce & Gabbana cocktail dress paired with a black crop blazer and black satin pumps.

Stefano Gabbana, Camilla Alves, Matthew McConaughey, Letizia Moratti, Giovanni Terzi, Domenico Dolce all posed together on the red carpet prior to the event.

Camilla and Letizia Moratti clearly didn’t get the all black memo.

Camilla wore a white chiffon Dolce & Gabbana cocktail dress with jewel detail, whilst Letizia wore a red satin Dolce & Gabbana dress.

Margherita Missoni was my favourite on this red carpet, mixing her mustard leopard print Dolce & Gabbana dress with leopard print heels.

Eva Herzigova wore a leopard print and polka dot Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2010 ensemble.

I’m usually more excited about what Anna dello Russo wears, but I don’t feel that on this occasion.

Her fringed black Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2010 dress is very subdued for someone with such a daring fashion sense.

Other guests at the event included Morgan Freeman, Chace Crawford, and Nick McCarthy from Franz Ferdinand.

Surprisingly Madonna wasn’t there.
