The 28-year-old British actress, whose latest film, “Like Crazy,” won the Special Jury Prize at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, will begin appearing in advertising for the brand in January, said a spokesperson for Procter & Gamble Prestige Products, which produces the makeup and fragrance lines under license from Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. The first product line she will represent is the Khol Collection, which will be released in January. The image is described as portraying Jones as “an aristocratic, sauvage girl.”

In a statement, the designers said, “representing a heady mix of sensuality, confidence and beauty, Felicity Jones offers a sense of divine contradiction. Classically beautiful yet modern in attitude, her audacious gaze is impossible to ignore.”

Jones is currently in post-production on “Cheerful Weather for the Wedding,” also starring Elizabeth McGovern and expected to be released in 2012. She has finished three films and a TV movie since wrapping up “Like Crazy.”
