Monica Bellucci has mastered the art of polished dressing. At 57, the former Bond girl and actor manages to continually find ways to both elevate and revamp her (often all-black) closet. In 2015, the fashion-forward Italian star attended the BAFTAs in a custom Alaïa dress, which remains one of her most memorable looks to date. In 2019, the Dolce & Gabbana devotee decided to ditch her signature black uniform for the night in favour of a fiery-red ruffled number from the label’s Alta Moda collection to attend the Venice Film Festival.
As glamorous as her step-and-repeat moments have been, there’s plenty of proof that her off-duty ensembles are equally as captivating. This week, the Italian bombshell was pictured shopping in Milan sporting a head-to-toe black outfit that spoke to her elevated wardrobe. Bellucci opted for a belted black trench coat, paired with slightly flared tailored trousers and a sturdy oversized bag. She also tapped into the wedged heel renaissance, and opted for a pair of cork wedge sandals.
The femme fatale, who credits her mother and grandmother for her innate style, manages to command attention with just a few slick styling tricks. Why not consider the actor’s spring wardrobe your workwear inspiration for the months ahead?
