Beauty/ Romantique

French Beauty Laetitia Casta is the face of Dolce and Gabbana’s perfume Pour Femme & Pour Homme. The beautiful commercial for the perfume, filmed in the village of Erice in Sicily, Italy, is focused on Italian heritage. The black and white video filmed by Mario Testino depicts beauty and elegance and includes the quintessential Italian ingredients: La familia, a wedding, food and achingly beautiful landscapes shots.

Laetitia Casta, born in the Mediterranean island of Corsica just off the Italian coasts, talks about her Mediterranean roots, the french touch and her beauty secrets (extract from the current French Glamour):

being a a real epicurean.

LC: I eat everything. I’m wary of regimes and routines. On some days, I might smoke a cigarette or have a glass of wine from time to time.

LC: My mum taught me to take care of myself. In my family, everyone is impeccably groomed, for example they take care to have beautiful hair. My mum uses vinegar to make her hair shine and she taught me to do the same. Now it’s my turn and I’m showing my oldest daughter how to take care of herself.

loving sexy perfumes…

LC: I change my perfume every day. The sensual Dolce and Gabbana is not very heady, it has all the components I love in a perfume, it smells just like Sicily. I also love the creators Domenico and Stefano, they make me feel confident and are always a source of good advice.


LC: I use pharmacy products to cleanse my skin and I hydrate the skin with fig oil. Like all people of the South, I know the dangers of the sun. To protect myself, I’m doing a siesta in the middle of the day and won’t go to the beach before 6pm.

keeping in shape.

LC: I don’t do sport, I have three children! To maintain my figure, I eat healthily and move around a lot.

playing with paradox..

Usually I use only little makeup. At the moment I like a more rocky, edgy  look with strong eye makeup and “Blue denim” nail varnish.

The “Figui+” skincare series from Oriental Lab contains fig oil. L’oreal blue nail varnish in “Blue Fashionista”
