Monica Bellucci is truly an international star and ambassador of Italian style abroad. The March 2013 issue of Harper’s Bazaar Ukraine sees her as cover girl.
She is an undisputed beauty, and at almost 50 she is still a sex symbol, and gives any starlet in her twenties a run for their money. What Monica seems to embody so well is the role of woman, the female, the feminine. From lover to mother through to virago and witch, Monica’s looks, expressions and demeanour make her so incredibly feminine.
In a shoot, with accompanying video, in Harper’s Bazaar Ukraine, Monica and Dolce&Gabbana Spring Summer 2013 looks from the Sicilian Folk Collection just ooze femininity and sensuality. An ode to everything Italian, the Ornella Vanoni soundtrack, L’appuntamento, lends that buttery softness to the backstage video of the shoot, embodied by Monica herself in the still images.
By placing Monica on the cover Harper’s Bazaar Ukraine places the bar pretty high, as there’s something about this Italian bombshell which makes most other women pale into insignificance.
