D&G Cosmetics

Dolce & Gabbana has tapped the voluptuous Scarlett Johansson for the face of their first cosmetics collection *yawn*, which was photographed in a studio in London by Sølve Sundsbø and had input from legendary makeup artist Pat McGrath.

McGrath developed 3 looks that epitomise the line:

  • Lustful Lips, inspired by a silver screen siren with dark ruby lips and nails
  • Provacative Eyes, a smoky eye and pale lips
  • Sensually Natural, a pared-back look of neutral hues

The make-up will be packaged in weighty metal glossy gold with rounded edges and slipped into black velvet pouches (how original!). Colours are taking inspiration from the Mediterranean. The lipsticks are perfumed with a trademark rose scent and mascara with a peppery (wtf?) olfactory note.

The collection will launch initially at the luxury Italian department store La Rinascente’s, then later in March at Selfridges of London and Saks Fifth Avenue.
