Vogue Italia celebrated its 50th birthday with a party during Milan’s Fashion Week and I couldn’t help noticing that a lot of the celebrities there have seen or are about to see 50 themselves.
Two at the party, Isabella Ferrari and Valeria Golino,continue look great, to get good roles, and don’t seem to be penalized by their age.
Isabella turned 50 last spring and I saw her wrinkle free and seemingly Botox free face in person in August at the Venice Film Festival. She starred as the hippie mom in Renato De Maria’s La Vita Oscena, a role in which she very successfully went from young mom to dying cancer patient with no special effects.
You can also find her in Paolo Sorrentino’s Academy Award winning La Grande Bellezza (The Great Beauty).
I also got a good look and a couple of good pictures of Valeria Golino, who’ll turn 50 next year. Golino, who has clearly made some kind of deal with the devil, continues to be in demand by the best directors, playing much younger women in movies like this year’s Academy Award submitted film, Il Capitale Umano, Human Capital.
Take a look at these other over 50 Italian actresses. Monica may have hit the Botox a little, but the rest seem pretty naturally stunning.
