Monica Bellucci is our Icon and State of mind of the week. Perhaps one the most beautiful latin woman alive. Say her name and it’s like using an adjective – a metaphor for a total, complete, sensual form of beauty.
Today, at 45, she has succeeded in making film roles for the mature woman, those that other actresses fear, desirable. Monica is a true symbol of Mediterranean beauty: she has the colouring and the curves, but also an amused, ironic attitude towards her own body.
Instead of being a problem, this has helped her throughout her career. Bellucci would definitely not have been Bellucci without a few extra pounds. She is a wonderful incarnation of male desire as a testimonial for cosmetics companies like Dior and as an actress on the big screen.
Monica Bellucci has inspired so many women and a whole generation of photographers. Bellucci is an absolute timeless muse.
