When it comes to the world's most famous beauties, Monica Bellucci frequently represents Italy on the list. The 47-year-old actress is an international sex symbol not just because of her voluptuous curves, but also because of the palpable intelligence she conveys in her films and interviews. (If there's a heterosexual man who isn't attracted to Monica Bellucci, we haven't met him.) She's sexy, smart, glamorous, and womanly — which may be why Dolce & Gabbana tapped her as the new face of its cosmetics line earlier this year. Now, she's the muse for their newest lipsticks ($32), designed with the help of legendary makeup artist Pat McGrath. The six shades range from a cardinal red to soft petal pink, but our pick is Only Monica, an incredibly versatile candy-sweet pink. But you don't need to be a fan to find a reason to pucker up; the softly scented formula is highly pigmented, with enough color to persevere through a morning macchiato. Bellissima.
