FABULOUS! Isabella Rossellini is on the cover of Italian Vogue for the June 12 issue. I couldn’t be more thrilled! She began modeling when when she was 28 and now at nearly 60 years old, she looks stunning. Gorgeous. Full of life.
Styled by Karl Templer and photographed by Steven Meisel, this cover is an insta-classic. It take a strong step forward into the new age of fashion; one in which women get to celebrate how awesome it is to be a woman. The cover line tells us all. Fashion isn’t simply about looking good anymore, it’s about feeling good.
Italian Vogue has always been the mecca of fashion bibles with American Vogue a very close, commercially driven, second. Anna Wintour took a huge risk years ago when she came out with the annual Shape Issue that celebrated all sizes. And now, Italian editor, Franca Sozzani, has taken that message a step further beyond shapes and sizes, stepping beyond physical boundaries and into the expression of spirit.
Don’t you just feel good about yourself looking at Isabella’s authentic smile? I do.
I can’t wait to see the editorial inside. Absolutely beautiful. Thank you to everyone involved in making this cover happen.
