Being a timeless beauty icon comes with major perks, right Sophia Loren?

For the 81-year-old, those perks now include having a namesake Dolce & Gabbana lipstick shade…and the modeling job to promote the new beauty good. The lipstick, dubbed Sophia Loren N°1, is a semi-sheer lipstick in Sophia's signature shade of red (really, it's more of a muted cherry color). And as if that weren't enough, the Italian actress—who celebrated her birthday two days ago, no less—is more radiant than ever in the new ads and accompanying campaign video for the lipstick shade, reminding everyone in the biz that she's still an ageless beauty.

"Sophia Loren N°1 is our way of saying, 'Thank you, Sophia!'" Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana said via press release. '"Thank you for her beauty, thank you for being a world favorite, 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."

Now, Sophia's not the first major star to be bestowed the honor of an eponymous lip color. Kendall Jenner has her own feisty red-orange shade for Estée Lauder, and many a Mac Cosmetics ambassador has her own lipstick, from Miley Cyrus to Rihanna and Lady Gaga.

Ready to snag a tube of your own Sophia-approved lip color? Then head on over to Saks Fifth and other select retailers, where you can pick up the luxury beauty item for $36 a pop.
