Friday's Fabulous Woman: Isabella Rossellini

I grew up gazing at pictures of the alluring beauty of Isabella Rossellini --- or should I say Isabella Fiorella Elettra Giovanna Rossellini (according to Wikipedia) I have name envy.

The daughter of Swedish actress Ingrid Bergman and Italian director, Roberto Rossellini,  she began modeling at the 'ancient' age of 28,  added acting and book writing to her repertoire along the way, and is now an animal conservationist, student and film maker.

Unforgettable in David Lynch's Blue Velvet, she was the face of Lancome for years and graced many a Vogue cover.  She is fabulously smart, fabulously talented and fabulously beautiful.
