Model, muse, and mother of two, Monica Bellucci is the new face for Dolce Gabbana cosmetics.

“Monica expresses perfectly the Dolce & Gabbana woman,” said Stefano Gabbana. “She is ravishing–a true Italian icon.”

Her limited-edition collection of lipsticks, the Monica Collection, are exclusive to Saks Fifth Avenue and will debut this summer.

“Lipstick says a lot about a woman,” said Monica. “It is her most traditional gesture.”

Below, Monica is pictured in a recent D & G campaign shoot, being serenaded by a smitten young man.

“We love Monica and have worked with her many times over the past 20 years. Her beauty is timeless,” said Domenico Dolce.

Check out our homage to the sizzling screen siren, who appeared in films such as The Matrix Reloaded, The Passion of the Christ, and Don’t Look Back, as well as the French flick L’Appartement, for which she was nominated a César Award.
