Dolce & Gabbana 'True Monica Collection'! Xx

“We are constantly inspired by Monica Bellucci, 
to us she will always be the original Dolce and Gabbana woman; 
naturally, timelessly beautiful with an 
unwavering strength of character on the inside,” 
say Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.

“Being Italian means to live everyday as if it was the last one,
 enjoy it and make it beautiful. Indeed, everyone can feel Italian”,
says Monica Bellucci.

Photographer Giampaolo Sgura has captured Monica Bellucci,
the longtime muse of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana,
as the classically true Italian woman
with beautiful Sicilian summer images — oleander in bloom and a lemon tree.
She is wearing the iconic Dolce and Gabbana black lace dress
which looks perfect with her creamy skin, luscious lips and smoky eyes
- all part of the 'True Monica Collection'. 
A make-up collection for the lips, eyes and nails, 
with shades that capture the essence of Italian femininity.

Each shade has been especially designed by 
Dolce and Gabbana Make Up creative advisor Pat McGrath, 
developed to work in perfect harmony
 as a complete and classic make-up look.

There are three new natural shades of lipstick 
in the iconic Gold 'Monica' Signed Cases 
Nude Monica, a refined buff, True Monica, a natural fleshy pink, 
and Gentle Monica, a soft pale rose.
From L to R: Nude Monica, True Monica and Gentle Monica

 The lipsticks’ smooth and creamy formula 
features skin conditioning ingredients to leave 
the lips feeling soft and looking plump and have
 a signature scent of powdery rose.

The look’s other focal point are the eyes. 
There is a Brand new eyeshadow quad in Smoky 
perfect for the classic smoky eye.

Above: Velvety soft khol pencils, 
including new hue Graphite and deep brown Chocolate 
to add intensity to the smoky eye.

“Monica’s signature look works on many skin tones,” 
says the fashion world’s leading make-up artist and
 brand Creative Advisor Pat McGrath. 
“Use the khol pencil first, smudge and then 
apply the shadows to enhance the eye.
 To get the lips looking extra full, fill them in with lipliner
 first and then apply lipstick, Nude Monica suits darker skin,
 while pink-based Gentle Monica suits porcelain skin tones.”
