Monica Bellucci for Dolce & Gabbana Voluptuous Lipstick

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.

Front Row @ Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2012

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.

Dolce & Gabbana’s Men’s 20th Anniversary Party

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.

Mardan Palace Launch Cocktail Reception

Many stars attended the Mardan Palace Hotel opening in Turkey, which is Europe’s most expensive luxury resort.

Mariah Carey was one of the performers on the night.  She arrived on the red carpet, wearing a green striped Roberto Cavalli plunging gown.

Cavalli signature gold serpent seems to under a lot of pressure, keeping Mariah’s gown together.

I only say this because I’m jealous.

Monica Bellucci shows off her enviable figure, wearing a beautiful fishtail blush pink lace gown.

I like that she kept her make-up light and luminous, to complement her gown.

Paris Hilton gave us a twirl Рas she so often does Рshowing us the full capacity of her fuchsia pink Canker Ka̤ar gown.

She glows in pink, and I much prefer this gown to the Basil Soda gown she wore to the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Benefit.

Sharon Stone continues to keep tackiness at bay, wearing a stunning Roberto Cavalli black strapless gown, with a feathered skirt.

2009 Cannes Film Festival – “Don’t Look Back” Premiere & Photocall

In the kindest possible way, Monica Bellucci and Sophie Marceau need to get a room because it was almost impossible to find separate pictures of them on the red carpet.

At the Don’t Look Back (Ne Te Retourne Pas) premiere during Cannes, Monica Bellucci oozed megawatt sex appeal, whilst showing off her sexy curves in an off-the-shoulder Christian Dior silk gown with a matching Dior clutch.

Her décolletage was decorated with an exquisite necklace.

Red carpet glamour doesn’t get any hotter than this.

Sophie Marceau also wore red.

Normally this would maybe considered this a fashion faux pa, but these woman are so close I assume this dual red strapless look was planned.

The one-time Bond girl wore a YSL Editor Soir strapless column dress, with matching heels.

A gorgeous necklace also completed her look.

Sophie’s look was more casual at the photocall earlier in the day, when she wore a strapless lurex Missoni Spring 2009 silver jumpsuit.

The jumpsuit was paired with a gold obi-style belt and grey t-bar heels.

Monica opted for a all black ensemble for the photocall, adding some on trend nude Christian Louboutin d’Orsay heels.

I make this event a tie. Monica wins at the premiere, and Sophie wins at the photocall.

Social Events Of The Week

Valentino Reception Honoring New Yorkers For Children, New York

Heidi Klum was the first to wear Victoria Beckham Collection earlier this week, now her fellow Victoria’s Secret supermodel pal Selita Ebanks has.

Selita wore this Spring 2009 strapless dress, which I tried on and fell in love with last year.

The strapless tulle trimmed corseted navy pencil dress, has sequined hip panel and a matching sash at the waist.

It looks like these models may start to out do Mrs Beckham in her own designs.

Women’s World Awards, Vienna

Elle Macpherson wore the same Roberto Cavalli green gown, with gold details that Carla Guginos had worn to the LA Watchmen premiere earlier this week.

Her gold accessories included a Jimmy Choo Kase oval clutch.

Taking a break from her much favoured black, Monica Bellucci shows us how beautiful she is wearing a lilac satin Christian Dior Spring 2008 gown, which hugs her gorgeous womanly curves.

The Alliance For Children’s Rights Annual Awards Dinner Gala, LA

Angie Harmon wore a red and black printed Behnaz Sarafpour Resort 2009 dress, with a contrast black jersey tank.

A.R.T-JOY-LOVE Charity Gala For Association Hadassah, Paris

It seems like Carla Bruni-Sarkozy has put the high heels away for good, even then her shorter husband is not around.

With her kitten heels, Carla wore a black Chanel dress, with an ivory bib.

I wasn’t going to pay Elsa Zylberstein much attention, until I clocked her Balenciaga studded gladiator heels. ?
