Elle (Canada) - - StoryBoard -

The princess-pink hue of Ri­hanna’s 2015 Grammy gown (you know the one) is now avail­able in lip­stick. Gi­ambat­tista Valli has teamed up with long-time col­lab­o­ra­tor M.A.C to pro­duce five limited-edi­tion matte lip­sticks and a pot of high-shine gloss. “The first thing I thought of when designing this col­lec­tion was the idea of dress­ing your lips with Gi­ambat­tista Valli,” the designer told us at his New York show­room. “This Valli girl, she’s a pas­sion­ate kind of woman. She laughs, she kisses, she talks—she’s very alive.” How she wears the col­lec­tion—matte lip­stick worn solo or lay­ered with gloss, gloss used as a high­lighter on cheek­bones—is en­tirely up to her, says Valli, who counts Amal Clooney and Diane Kruger as clients. “I al­ways need the sup­port of the woman. Even though I cre­ated th­ese lip­stick shades, it’s the woman who gives them life.” From top: Lip­stick in Bianca B, Char­lotte, Margherita, Eu­ge­nie and Tats ($21 each)
