Woman of the week: Monica Bellucci

I decided to start this Series of posts called “Women of the Week” to honor one woman I find stylish and iconic in the history (or present time). This is the first week so I am starting it off strong with Monica Bellucci – the ageless Italian model/actress. Being a 90s baby (1995 to be exact) born in the US, I wasn’t too familiar with her name until one day I watched the 2000 movie Malèna and I immediately looked her up. There are so many pictures of her on Tumblr (I mean, of all places) and I was hooked by the effortlessly sexy energy she radiates in every photograph ever taken of her. I like the unapologetic and confident her images are. I’m drawn to how simple yet incredibly seductive her style is. By the way, does this woman ever aged?

Early years:

Style Notes:

  • Her style is simple and bold. Whatever you’ve got show it! And in this case, opt for a simple formfitting busty one-piece spaghetti dress and put on red lipstick (find the color tone that suits you!).
  • The hair doesn’t have to be styled all the time, but having some volume is always nice.
  • Manicured hands. ALWAYS.
  • Finally, be confident with who you are and pose accordingly.
