NAME: Eva Riccobono
FROM: Palermo, Sicily
OCCUPATION: model, actress, TV presenter
SIGNATURE STYLE: A wonderful mix of feminine lace and chalky pastels with masculine tailoring and minimal cuts
YOU MIGHT RECOGNISE HER FROM... several high-profile shows and editorials. She's walked for Dolce & Gabbana, Prada and Valentino, to name but a few, and has appeared on the front cover of several iconic publications, including Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Elle. If you were eagerly following the coverage of the 70th Venice Film Festival this August, then you'll have noticed Eva also hosted the opening and closing events.
WE LOVE HER BECAUSE... she doesn't limit herself, professionally. A lot of models take that path very seriously, and will only indulge in activities that are appropriately 'fashion'. Finding a model who pursues interests outside of health, fitness and wellbeing is pretty challenging, which is why we loved her as soon as we found out that she is a passionate cook, loves shooting and is fascinated by psychology and psychiatry.
WE CAN'T WAIT FOR... Riccobono's budding career as an actress to take a mainstream turn. With such a strong portfolio both on and off screen, it's only a matter of time before she branches out of the Italian film industry and moves towards Hollywood - and what a leading lady she would make!
INTERESTINGLY, she has recorded a song with her fiance, Italian sound engineer Matteo Ceccarini, while lying in bed with him. The track is called Labbra, which means 'lips'. It looks like she has a naughty side too...
