Scarlett Johansson has been revealed as the face of the new Dolce & Gabbana cosmetics line.

The Marilyn Monroe-inspired ads will debut later this year in the pages of all the big Fashion mags and D&G Makeup will launch this Spring.

“We see makeup as another thing for women, like a dress. We worked on the makeup line like we work on a clothing collection — you can change makeup like you can change your clothes, depending on your mood.”, Gabbana said to WWD.

Much like the rest of their collection, the cosmetics are inspired by the beauty of Italia – from Mediterranean blues to the black of volcanic ash.

The lipsticks will be scented with rose, Gabbana explained:

“We wanted to create makeup with a scent. Domenico and I remember when we were children and opened our mother’s handbags — the scent of her lipstick trailed out. I observed that when women open makeup, they smell it first.”

Distribution for the new line is highly selective and in the U.S. it will be sold at Saks on Fifth Avenue in NY and Beverly Hills in Los Angeles.

Prices will range from $20 for nail lacquer to $59 for powder foundation. – Source: dailystab
