In a release, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana said, "Sophia Loren No. 1 is our way of saying, 'Thank you, Sophia!' 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."
