It’s been ages since we worked with aleXsandro Palombo. Eons ago, he illustrated Saynt and I sitting on the toilet, which currently hang in our bathroom (image below). Recently, he illustrated the anniversary cover of Grazia China, poking fun at Lady Gaga, Victoria Beckham, DVF, the D&G boys, and many others.

Containing five crimson-hued Classic Cream Lipsticks, peach Blush and a refined smokey Eyeshadow Quad, each golden compact is adorned with a ruby to represent the fiery spirit of the collection.

Think of the average guy laying in his bed with his underwear, socks, and shoes on? Sounds the aftermath of a bad frat party and quite an unappealing sight. Leave it to the minds of Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana to turn what would usually look really awful into a sexy spread featuring some of the top male models in the industry.
As New York Fashion Week comes to a close, I am in need of a serious makeover. With cooler-weather wardrobes coming into full swing, I’ve turned to the fall 2011 runways for beauty inspiration. But when it comes to making a lady look her best, nothing does it better than Dolce&Gabbana Make Up. For the brand’s fall beauty collection titled “Sweet Tempations,” Creative Advisor Pat McGrath collaborated with Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana on a palette that is playfully sexy and incredibly luxurious. To show you what I really mean, check out my before and after photos after the jump.
