Obsession Du Jour 4.28.09

I was so excited when I heard that Dolce and Gabbana was coming out with a makeup line. I have had the pleasure to meet Stefano and Domenico a few times through work and I am severely obsessed with them. They are such creative chic creatures. They worked closely with Pat Mcgrath, renowned makeup maven to create this line.

Anyway, My excitement continued to grow as I heard that Scarlett Johansson was going to be the face of the line. According to Stefano and Domenico, the reason why they wanted Scarlett was for her similarities to Marilyn Monroe, "Everyone knows that men prefer blondes", quoted from Domenico Dolce. I love the look of the campaign, blonde, bronzed, smoky eyes and a nude lip.

I have not seen it in person yet, but I see that the website it up and running. It was launched in Milan, during the fashion shows in March. I do not know how I feel about the packaging, all gold, sometimes can come across quite tacky, but I reserve judgment for in person!

There is nothing ground shattering that I see so far in the collection, I would like to try the bronzer and one of the quads. It is not available online yet and it does not say where it will be carried yet besides Selfridges in London. I will have to stop by next time I am in London for work.


Will you buy when it comes out?


  1. Its available now at Saks from what I heard. I think its the first location in the US that will carry the line ;)

  2. Well by the sounds of it D&G only had blondes in mind when designing this range. I think they should stick to sunnies. It sounds much ado about nothing really.

    Do you work for a fashion magazine?

  3. Krasey, really? I know as of 4/23 it was still under construction! I will have to take a stroll uptown!

  4. Yinka, I do not work for a mag, but i work for in fashion, the company for now shall remain nameless! :)

  5. I saw this ad & wasso in love with her look. She is BEAUTIFUL!

  6. Hi Gigi,
