bella italiana

Mariacarla Boscono (Women) highlights the August 2006 issue of Vogue China, looking very elegant and poised (as opposed to the time she accidentally whacked makeup artist extraordinaire Pat McGrath with a parasol). Personally, I’m not a fan of the bottled blonde crop, but it's growing on me. After all, its strong influence was felt in the four or five other Mariacarlettes on Dior’s fall/winter 2006 haute couture runway.

Maybe it's the post-World Cup victory exhilaration that generated such an issue majorly devoted to all things Italian: style, sound, icons, beauty, art, and plenty more.

Hey, they could've done it on Chinese culture and Du Juan (IMG) as the cover but perhaps they're postponing that for Beijing 2008.
