Actress Scarlett Johansson will be the face of the new Dolce & Gabanna line of cosmetics.

“Scarlett is sure of herself. She’s a beautiful girl, but she’s really easygoing. She is very Dolce & Gabbana,” the Italian designing duo said.

“We see makeup as another thing for women, like a dress. We worked on the makeup line like we work on a clothing collection — you can change makeup like you can change your clothes, depending on your mood,” Stefano Gabbana told WWD on Friday.

The collection will include lipsticks scented with rose.

“We wanted to create makeup with a scent," said Gabbana. "Domenico and I remember when we were children and opened our mother’s handbags — the scent of her lipstick trailed out. I observed that when women open makeup, they smell it first.

Johansson was recently photographed for a series of Marilyn Monroe-inspired print ads (see above) that will debut in magazines later this year.

The collection itself will launch this Spring, with prices ranging from $20 for nail polish to $59 for powder foundation.
