Who's that girl? Brit actress Felicity Jones is new face of DG

We're going to be seeing a lot more of Felicity in 2012...
Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell and Madonna are a just some of the leading ladies that have starred in Dolce & Gabanna campaigns.

But taking a different tactic the Italian luxury brand has employed a little-known actress from Birmingham to front its latest collection.

Sporting a porcelain complexion and chestnut locks, 28-year-old Felicity Jones first made a name for herself in the Nineties children's drama The Worst Witch as Ethel Hallow.

But over recent years she has appeared in a number of Hollywood features working with the likes of Maggie Gyllenhaal,Rupert Everett and Guy Pearce and she has been likened to English roses Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan.

D&G designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana announced that the rising star will appear in a string of stylish ads promoting a new makeup collection, set to launch next January.

They described Jones as 'representing a heady mix of sensuality, confidence and beauty.'

'Classically beautiful yet modern in attitude, her audacious gaze is impossible to ignore.'

Jones has regularly been spotted wearing D&G designs on the red carpet and she appeared front row at their spring / summer 2012 show in Milan sporting a cream and black lace print cocktail dress, alongside fellow D&G ambassador, Scarlett Johansson.

No images have been released but it is said that they portray the edgy Brit as 'an aristocratic, savage girl'.

Modelling is not a new venture for Jones and she has been snapped by Mario Testino for British brand Burberry and appeared on the cover of Tatler's March 2011 edition with Gossip Girl star and Chalet Girl co-star Ed Westwick.

A spokesperson for the brand said it has not been confirmed if Felicity will replace or join Scarlett Johansson to promote the makeup collection which premiered at Selfridges in 2009.

Currently prices range from £17 for nail varnish to £27 for a lipstick.

Jones will appear on advertisements for the D&G the Khol Collection in the new year.
