Sex Symbol Monica Bellucci Creates Limited Edition Dolce & Gabbana Lipsticks

Beloved Italian design house Dolce & Gabbana has announced that they have a new face for their beauty line—actress and model Monica Bellucci.

Best known for her roles in films like Passion of the Christ and her appearance as the lithe Persephone in the Matrix trilogy, Bellucci has long been considered a sex symbol and leading lady in Italy. (I was a teenager when Matrix was released, and I cannot tell you how many times I heard “Monica Bellucci is the hottest thing ever,” from male friends). Aside from her sex appeal though, Bellucci has also been a long-time friend to both designers and in an interview with WWD, Stefano Gabbana said “[Monica]’s our icon, she’s the emblem of Dolce & Gabbana.” It’s only fitting, then, that she’s now joining the ranks of screen sirens like Scarlett Johansson and Felicity Jones as the face of the D&G cosmetics line.

Reading List: Super Bowl Beauty, Paris Couture Beauty, Dating Lessons from Clueless, BTS at Dolce & Gabbana, and More

NYFW is so close we can taste it (get ready for loads of exclusive backstage images next week) but this weekend we’re all about relaxing, watching the big game and catching up on our reading. Read on for our favorite stories this week.

  • We’re looking forward to the Super Bowl this weekend. Mostly for the snacks (Shh! Don’t tell our manfriends!) but also so we can rock these fun football-inspired nails and eye makeup. [Hello Brit]
  • The Paris Couture shows are always full of amazing makeup and hair, but they’re also usually a little out of control. This season was no exception, with a bounty of fun looks, some of which we even want to recreate ourselves. Click through to vote on the best looks. [BellaSugar]
  • If we had a penny for every time we wanted to relate the movie Clueless to our real lives, we’d be rich. With Valentine’s Day coming up though, it’s more relevant than ever. The Gloss pulled together the nine dating lessons they learned from the movie. [The Gloss
  • Felicity Jones is the new (gorgeous!) face for Dolce & Gabbana’s beauty collection and this behind the scenes video with Jones and makeup artist Pat McGrath has us jones-ing (get it?) for the lipstick and khol eyeliner. [Beauty High]
  • Nail artist Sophy Robson’s Tumblr is always a source of inspiration. Today she posted a crazy cool video of an interesting high tech way to create nail art involving etching. [So So Fly Nails]

This is, without a doubt, the craziest, most elaborate makeup video I’ve ever seen. Part runway show, part ’80s revival, this recently released Dolce & Gabbana promo clip for the brand’s new collection has both footage and music get your heart pumping (considering that the line is called Animalier, I guess it needs to be provocative). Even though I have no idea how the colors from this bronzer would play out on my skin, I know I want it. What can I say, I’m a sucker for a cute cheetah print.
