‘You have to be born a sex symbol, you don’t become one. If you’re born with it, you’ll have it even when you’re 100 years old,’ once said the Italian beauty icon and talented actress Sophia Loren and continuously proves to everybody that when she states something she definitely means that. On the 20th of September of 2015 the Italian goddess and cinematography legend was celebrating her 81st anniversary like an aged aromatic cognac that is becoming ultra-premium and ultra-spicy with the progression of time and is being enshrined as a real treasure in a safe and silky place. We are never tired of thumbing through her astonishing photos, afresh admiring her hazel tint and almond shaped eyes, being hypnotized by her penetrating gaze and trying to adopt some details and touches of her unique style. Being the object of admiration of zillion successful men and a role model for many stylish women the idol is leaving us speechless when we once more come across her incomparable talent in such retro films as “Two Women”, “Marriage Italian-style” or “Sunflower”, wherein she is demonstrating different aspects of her nature so charmingly and dizzily.
The Italian luxury fashion house Dolce & Gabbana is ardently congratulating Sophia on her 81st birthday and giving her a unique present being her own lipstick shade. The loving tribute Dolce & Gabbana Sophia Loren N°1 limited edition lipstick was released yesterday in Dolce & Gabbana’s Beauty Boutique in Corso Venezia in Milan, where many beauty addicts preordered the lipstick so as to purchase it later. Sophia Loren N°1 is already available at retailers such as Saks Fifth Avenue at only $37.00.
“Sophia Loren N°1 is our way of saying, ‘Thank you, Sophia!’. Thank you for her beauty, thank you for being a world favorite, 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,” designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana say in the official release. The bright cherry red lipstick with skin conditioning ingredients and semi sheer effect makes Sophia Loren’s fleshy lips elegantly glister when she is smiling in the accompanying promo shoot wearing an elegant black lace dress and her neck adorned with Dolce & Gabbana chic collar necklace. The lovely lip rouge is nestled in Dolce & Gabbana standard golden tube, which is glorified by Sophia Loren’s romantic signature. Not only is the rich color and chic tube make Sophia Loren N°1 so magnetic, but also its powdery rose tantalizing scent that will turn your lips into a realistic aromatic rose.
The Italian beauty idol was really a powerful and emphatic inspiration for Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. “Sophia Loren” phenomenon is so energetic and fathomless that we are sure to see designers with further inspired-by-Sophia-Loren releases that may include not only delicate lipsticks but also eyeshadows or mascara that will become double sophisticated on Sophia Loren’s one-of-a-kind eyes.
