Pat McGrath on The Brush Collection:
In an invaluable collaboration with Dolce & Gabbana, superstar make up artist, Pat McGrath lends her immeasurable backstage experience and unrivalled expertise to the design and development of The Brush Collection. “As a professional I know that the quality of make-up tools are just as important as the quality of the make-up, if not more so, “says McGrath. “Our goal was to create tools for a beauty ritual that’s effective, effortless and luxurious – and for each brush to exist as beautiful object in itself. It was very rewarding to help develop these remarkable brushes; they’re the perfect tools for delivering a polished perfected look that every woman can easily achieve”.

Introducing Dolce&Gabbana The Roses Lipstick Collection.
“To me, lips are a woman’s most evocative feature; they are the focus of her femininity, the key to her innermost being. The shades she wears must capture her many moods,” says Domenico Dolce, “since the rose has always been an icon to us, representing deep womanly sensuality in full bloom, it seemed natural that it served equally as inspiration in our quest for the perfect collection of lipsticks.”
“We also wanted to emphasize the act of applying lipstick, which should be the most luxurious and most intimate of beauty rituals, so finding the perfect rose scent was crucial,” says Stefano Gabbana, “as the design of the lipstick as an object of absolute beauty too, is essential.”

“We saw Twilight and we loved the kind of visceral, profound love that links the protagonists, their passions and their values. This is why we wanted to celebrate the release of New Moon with D&G by organizing a special screening and an after-party at The Box in New York. Robert Pattison, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, apart from being beautiful, embody an ideal that goes beyond the story that they interpret. They let us understand that there is a need of emotions and of passions. They are for real the mirror of that generation that inspires our creations, that generation to which we are trying to talk with our work”.-Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana
