In 1982, when she wore a white shirt for Lancôme, Isabella Rosellini looked like a white angel. From Paris to New York to Milan, she lived her life, but to the world of women who wanted to be beautiful, Isabella Rossellini was an angel in white, with a white rose.
Then 15 years later, she was Lancôme angel no more, and suddenly, she became a woman, and she got old. She started to get heavier, her face started to get more round, she started to get wrinkles like all those women who wanted to become her.
But she has not changed the way she dressed her white shirt, white as her Lancôme years; and crisp, even when she is relaxing with her son in her farm; and up, or the collar, or the buttons, or the cuffs, but up. As if it were a small subtle gesture of fighting against the times, and age.
In 2019, when she walked on the runway of Dolce&Gabbana, with her son, her daughter and her grandson, in a ruffled white shirt, Isabella Rossellini kept her buttons up to the last one.
Even as grandmother, Isabella Rossellini dresses up her white shirt.
