Quotes

From the official website:
“Extraordinarily striking and unforgettable, Scarlett Johansson captures the desirability of Dolce&Gabbana’s first cosmetics collection, The Make Up. She symbolizes the essence of the modern chameleon, the perfection of a natural beauty as well as the provocative woman, the desire to express the range of her personality from seductress to innocent, all of which is at the heart of the collection. ”

Stefano Gabbana (one half of Dolce & Gabbana):
“Scarlett is sure of herself. She’s a beautiful girl, but she’s really easy going. She is very Dolce & Gabbana.”

Dolce & Gabbana:
“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.”

Dolce & Gabbana:
“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”
