Every year around this time, brands pull out all the stops and issue gorgeous limited-edition versions of their best-loved products. This year is already proving to be a bumper crop, with skin care, makeup, and scent brands all getting in on the action. Over at Dolce & Gabbana, the two fabric lovers in chief have put together this pretty new bottle for their popular fragrance The One. This Lace Edition ($75) smells exactly like the original, but the black floral net appliqués make the bottle a divine gift for anyone who already enjoys the scent. "You wear the fragrance on your skin the way you'd wear the finest Sicilian lace, and this campaign celebrates that," the brand's face, Scarlett Johansson, has said. The new edition certainly does the concept justice.
IMG Models have confirmed that uber gorgeous super model Gisele Bündchen will walk only one runway at Milan Fashion Week. It will be next Thursday for the Fall 2007 Dolce & Gabbana show. This is the first show she has walked for them since Spring 2003. Her spokesperson said:
“Gisele has a fragrance with Dolce and is doing their show exclusively in Milan next week.”
Oooh, sounds like an upcoming Beauty Byte to me! The fragrance referred to is The One by Dolce & Gabbana , and will be launched in the U.S. this summer. No fair - it has already been available in Europe for months!
The One features the Brazilian beauty in both print and television ads. This is the first new fragrance launched by the Italian duo since their licensing deal with Proctor & Gamble Prestige Products in December 2005.
We can't wait to see the gazelle-like Gisele dressed in Dolce at the show on Thursday. At least we know she'll smell great!
