DS Automobiles and Givenchy have joined forces for a special edition DS3 created specifically for ladies.

Based on the facelifted DS3 which came out at the beginning of the year, the limited-run Givenchy Le MakeUp can be had both as a hatchback and cabriolet. Only 500 units will be available in U.K. and unsurprisingly the model targets the female crowd since more than half of DS3 buyers are women. The cars come with an Opaline White body contrasted by a Whisper Purple finish for the roof, side mirror caps, and wheel center caps.

What actually makes this limited-run model stand out from a regular DS3 is the interior which is home to a special compartment in the central armrest. That’s the place where women will have access to a Givenchy Le MakeUp kit complemented by LED courtesy mirrors created specifically for this variant. Inside that makeup kit are all the essentials for looking pretty while on the go, including a lipstick, mascara, face powder, and nail polish.

Based on the Elegance trim, the DS3 Givenchy comes generously equipped with black leather upholstery and a seven-inch touchscreen display for the infotainment system. The car rides on 17-inch alloy wheels and is fitted as standard with those fancy DS LED Vision Xenon headlights. Women will certainly be glad to hear DS Automobiles will sell the car with standard rear parking sensors and a hill-start assist system to avoid unpleasant situations.

To make the owner’s life easier, the DS3 Givenchy has automatic headlights, air conditioning, as well as heated and folding side mirrors. Moreover, the special edition is bundled with the DS Connect Box with emergency and assistance system in case something goes wrong.

It’s going to be powered exclusively by a turbocharged 110-hp, three-cylinder gasoline engine linked as standard to a manual gearbox. However, most likely women will pay extra and go for the optional six-speed automatic transmission which will be easier to live with.

On display at the DS World Paris starting today, the DS3 Givenchy hatchback costs £19,395 for the manual and £20,895 if you would rather have the automatic. For an open-top experience, the price increases to £21,695 for the DS3 Givenchy cabrio manual and to £23,195 for the automatic model.
