Monica Bellucci has long been a style icon in the world of film, and today, at the Dior Couture show, she proved that she can hold her own in the realm of street style, too. The 54-year-old Italian actress gave a lesson in timeless front row dressing when she arrived wearing a burgundy suede dress coat that was tightly cinched at the waist and a pair of black knee-high leather boots by Christian Louboutin. She kept her accessories simple, sporting round, oversize sunglasses and a classic Dior saddle handbag.
While the actress is known for her bombshell movie roles – she was the oldest Bond girl when she took on the role at 50 – her street style has a more nuanced, scene-stealing quality. It’s clean, classic, and the antithesis of fashion peacocking. In fact, Bellucci looked as if she could just as well be heading to a casual lunch date as a star-studded couture show. She managed to make the flawless fashion statement look totally easy, like she wasn’t even trying. What could be chicer than that?
