Season after season, the beauty looks at the Dolce & Gabbana shows never fail to disappoint. And while this season’s woman was still perpetually beautiful, elegant and sexy, this time she exuded a sense of something deeper. Backstage, images of iconic mothers covered the mood boards; Italian muse, Monica Belucci in full pregnancy bloom, Jackie O with her Kennedy brood and charming shots of bombshells, Sophia Loren and Jane Birkin with their children. This is the designer duo’s ultimate homage “la mamma.”
Matte lipstick has never been an easy choice for me. The chalky textures and the quick drying, pasty formulas have me reaching for a cleansing wipe quicker than you can say, “pass the lip balm.” There’s always that fear that a lack of sheen will highlight every fault and unsightly line around the mouth. But I love bold, high-impact lip colours and to be honest these just pack more of a punch in matte formulas.
