Fontana bellini

Micol Fontana, one of the three famous sisters whose sartorial perfection pioneered Italian fashion and was favored by such divas as Ava Gardner, Linda Christian, Audrey Hepburn, Mirna Loy and Barbara Stanwick – turned one hundred years old on November 8th, 2013!

The Micol Fontana Foundation, which she inaugurated in 1994, has organized an international fashion competition. The award ceremony is set for Tuesday, May 20th in Rome, at the MAXXI Auditorium.

Bellini is proud to celebrate three great Italian women on this unique occasion – and toast to the future stars of fashion.
