Explaining the collaboration further, the release states: 'With her famed fulsome lips, impeccable complexion and daring, expressive eyes she exudes the irony, mystery and charm that comprises the very essence of the Dolce&Gabbana woman.'
Famed for her sensuality and voluptuous curves, Ms Bellucci also posed for her fellow countrymen in their Spring 2012 campaign for their ready-to-wear collection.
The choice to use her for their cosmetics line seems like an obvious one given her popularity and recognition as an Italian sex symbol.
'We love Monica and have worked with her many times over the past 20 years. Her beauty is timeless,' enthuses Domenico Dolce whose partner, Stefano Gabbana adds: 'She expresses perfectly the Dolce&Gabbana woman.
'She is ravishing - a true Italian icon.'

For her part, the actress is also excited about the partnership. 'I’m delighted to be collaborating with Domenico and Stefano on Dolce&Gabbana The Make Up,' she comments. 'I have always adored the aesthetic of Dolce&Gabbana and it’s so exciting to be involved with their creative process.'Ms Bellucci hails from Umbria, Italy and is married to French actor Vincent Cassel with whom she has two children.
Though she shows no sign of losing her looks and is still a favourite amongst readers of mens' magazines, the photographs have been considerably airbrushed.
Rachel Weisz's campaign for L'Oreal's anti-wrinkle cream was recently pulled due to complaints of excessive photoshopping of the 42-year-old's face.
