"We shot it in Paris, which is really like home to me now, and the more time I spend here, the more at home I feel," she told People magazine. "It was really nice to have everyone on home turf, it was lovely. It was a very easy-breezy day. We have all known each other for a very long time. The shoot was great, sort of like working on a little movie, which was unexpected but really fun, sort of our tribute to Marilyn."
Available in 14 colors, Dolce & Gabbana's Perfect Mono Intense Cream Eye Colours launch next month and, as the brand's creative advisor makeup goddess, Pat McGrath explains, "Perfect Mono has such a creamy formula that that it can be easily applied with the fingers. Even and compact, it gives the eyes a penetrating and intense look, in both the light shades and the darker matte tones."
The eye colors are also dynamic. Looking for a more intense feel? "Wet the finger you're applying it with, or use a pencil dipped in water," counsels McGrath. "It's perfect by itself although adding a lighter tone from your favorite Eyeshadow Quad or Duo, or applying a pearl shade alongside a matte one will create extra drama."
