Blessed with the body of “Italian sex symbol” and a face of “the most beautiful woman in the world”, Monica Bellicci can make anything on her look sensuous and seductive, including a white shirt.
Marilyn Monroe, the biggest sex symbol of her time, had the same power. But even she, while wearing a white shirt, looked less sensual, more girlish, perhaps the way the real Monroe was: a girl living within a woman’s body.
But Monica Bellicci is a woman through and through, and her white shirt, hints more at what is hidden than hides what is underneath, with or without a black bra, buttons done or undone.
But as the time passed, that sensuality manifested by her in a white shirt sometimes seems overflowing, when she squeezes her increasingly fuller figure into a pair of jeans.
Then in 2019, Monica Bellicci walked on the runway of Dolce & Gabbana, 26 years after she walked for the Italian brand as a young model. Hands in the pockets, wearing a 3 piece suits with very wide lapel pairing with a white dress shirt, she did not look sensual. Perhaps she did not need to any more.
At age of 54, twice divorced with two daughters, already proved her seductive power by being the world’s oldest Bond girl(or Bond lady as she preferred), she seemed like taking a rest, and taking control.
