    I recognized Benedetta Barzini immediately, but have definitely seen her in more flattering clothing. She would have looked stunning in the gent’s outfit above.

    I’ve kept a photo of her on my studio wall for the past 15 years. She is my inspiration and aim for the second half of my life.

    Not crazy about the pants, but she looks like someone I’d like to get to know.

    Really well put, Gigi. My thoughts exactly. Her personal style fits her like a second skin. It tells me loads about her. I love the fact that even though she has aged so beautifully, it seems that it has been a natural process. She seems so dignified, effortlessly elegant. No amount of “putting on” can achieve this.

    This woman can teach style and elegance… I believe she is Benedetta Barzini.

    She herself it beautiful, and I love her hair, but the clothes do nothing for me. They look like typical hippie-mom fare. Nothing wrong with the hippie-mom look, but it’s nothing special. Great photo, though.
