Being Italian myself it is the most natural thing to pay my respects to one of the greatest Italian actresses of all time, Monica Vitti.
When growing up in Italy, watching all the classic movies – both American and Italian – was an absolute! I think is from there that my love for fashion, glamour and fun first started…or perhaps just being Italian!! Lol!!! Anyway, apart from the ( of course) amazing leading Ladies like Sofia Loren, Gina Lollobrigida, and Anna Magnani ( to mention a few) Monica Vitti always stood out for me. I always loved her unpretentious way, her true beauty and style but also her wittiness ( Vitti – Witti get it?!? Hahah) , she was in fact most famous for her comedic roles and truly she was great actress.
The beautiful and talented Monica ( she won numerous best actress awards & globes in Italy) started her carrier with Michelangelo Antonioni in the 1960s but turned to comedy in the 1970s. She was ,and still is, one of the best kept Italian secret…well, not anymore!!! Lol!!!
Dolce & Gabbana appreciate her secret in the Spring 2010 Campaign starring Madonna, photographed by Steven Klein – Anna Magnani and Monica Vitti were the inspiration for this campaign, Monica Vitti being Madonna’s favourite actress… only saying ;)…xxx
