She’s an Italian goddess, a Hollywood legend, an inspiration for a generation. At 81 years old, Sophia Loren remains a global style and beauty icon and the embodiment of the inimitable Italian character. Her timeless look may have evolved from those classic shots we know and love so well, but there’s no doubt that the sparkle in her eye and the way she sashays across a room hasn’t changed a bit. This Autumn the Italian fashion powerhouse Dolce & Gabbana have created a loving tribute to both Sophia, and all women. According to D&G: “A lipstick represents ultimate femininity… It symbolises
the designers’ interpretation of beauty which manifests itself in a
smile. The same sensual, generous smile that made Sophia Loren the most
famous Italian actress in the world.” Partnering with Sophia herself to create a signature shade, ‘Sophia Loren No 1‘ is a lipstick like no other. The rich dusty pink shade is timeless, ageless and is perfectly suited to the Italian complexion; the warm undertones help skin to glow, while keeping the focus of the look on your natural beauty.
Not only is the bullet embossed with an indulgent D&G logo, but the exquisite gold pack is adorned with Sophia’s own signature – a stamp of approval if you will. You simply can’t compete with the luxury and sense of vintage glamour this evokes, which is why it commands an eye-wateringly expensive £31.00 price tag. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana say: “Sophia Loren No 1 is our way of saying ‘Thank you, Sophia!’ Thank you for her beauty, thank you for being a world favourite, thank you for being an icon of the big screen and of Italian beauty. She has been a constant source of inspiration for us and today we celebrate her with the gift of her very own lipstick.” The formula itself is rich, comfortable and slightly sheer, offering up hydrating benefits that will ensure your smile is plump and welcoming. It’s incredibly wearable and the kind of iconic product that women of every generation will treasure. If you want to get your hands on one, be quick – it’s limited edition and sure to sell out super fast.
The Dolce & Gabbana ‘Sophia Loren No 1‘ lipstick is exclusive to Harrods, priced £31.00.
