The gold casing for Sophia Loren No1 also features the Two Women star's autograph.
Paying tribute to the legendary screen star, Dolce and Gabbana state, "Sophia Loren No1 is our way of saying, 'Thank you, Sophia! Thank you for (your) beauty, thank you for being a world favourite, thank you for being an icon of the big screen and of Italian beauty.'
"She has been a constant source of inspiration for us and today we celebrate her with the gift of her very own lipstick."
Loren isn't the only celebrity to land her own lipstick - Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus have all worked with MAC in recent years, while Gwen Stefani, who is known for her signature red lips, is busy creating her own line of colours.
