How do you like to spend Christmas?
I'm going to Brazil with my family.
What is the most memorable Christmas gift you’ve ever received?
I don't remember every Christmas, but last year my husband offered me a beautiful coat.
What’s at the top of your Christmas list this year?
Being on the beach in front on the ocean with the people I love.
What’s your tip for creating a striking Christmas look?
Christmas is such a special time for me and my family, so I like to wear beautiful make up to ensure my look reflects this. I like to focus on the eyes as I think of them as being the window to your soul. For me Dolce & Gabbana’s Lace Collection is really special and you can create an unforgettable look with the Intenseyes Black Intensity Mascara which creates stunning volume and ultra blackness to your lashes. A slick of Dolce & Gabbana’s Ultra-Shine Lipgloss in Perfection makes the lips look so sensual; it is a beautiful and easily achievable look.
What is your favourite look for New Year’s Eve?
I'll be in Brazil so I will be dressed in white, with a beautiful Dolce & Gabbana dress and red lipstick on, because in Brazil red represents luck, plus intense mascara. The ideal shade for the occasion will be Dolce & Gabbana’s Monica Lipstick Voluptuous Lipstick in Attractive Monica, which is the shade I wore for the advertising campaign. It’s a really fulsome, seductive red that is just timeless. It’s the perfect red and looks incredible – it’s such rich, sensual colour. The mascara that I will choose over the festive period is Dolce & Gabbana Intenseyes Mascara as nothing else creates such a beautiful full, feathered look.
