Meet your must-have lipstick for fall. Italian fashion house and prestige beauty brand Dolce & Gabbana is releasing a limited-edition shade after their eternal muse, Sophia Loren, who also stars in the campaign.

Channeling Old Hollywood glamour just got a whole lot easier. Italian actress Sophia Loren, who just turned 81, is celebrating with a gorgeous lipstick shade made just for her (and named in her honor) by Dolce & Gabbana. Get the details on the iconic actress’ custom shade and where you can get it, below!

As renowned for her timeless beauty as her roles in classic films starring alongside fellow Hollywood icons like Cary Grant and Marlon Brando, Sophia makes for the perfect makeup inspiration. Take a closer look at the lipstick D&G calls a “loving tribute to the Italian beauty icon.”

Sophia’s red lipstick has deep pink undertones, making it more subtle than a true red lip. The resulting shade is a sheer cherry that leaves lips moisturized and glossy — a hue that works for all seasons. In typical D&G form, the lipstick is rose scented and comes housed in a gold tube, this time signed by Sophia herself.

Even if you’re not familiar with Sophia, if you follow Dolce & Gabbana’s collections at all or flip through their ads in magazines, you’ve unknowingly seen a taste of her iconic style. Brand founders Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana often reference Sophia in their designs and the makeup and hair looks they have their models walk the runway wearing each season (like makeup artist Pat McGrath‘s classic burgundy, red and nude lipstick shades for their Fall 2015 collection).

The Sophia Loren N°1 Lipstick, $37, is available for purchase now, and you can find a store that carries it near you at dolcegabbana.com. Will you be getting Sophia’s custom shade, HollywoodLifers?
