When we think of modern style icons, we can't help but immediately think of Italian beauty Margherita Missoni. The heiress to the family fashion house, it's no surprise that she has developed her own unique fashion style that lands her on countless fashion websites and magazine 'looks we want' pages all over the world. Let's explore Margherita's always fresh and inspiring style in this edition of Bella's Anatomy!
Margherita was born into a powerhouse fashion empire, so style naturally runs in her blood. She is not only the heiress to the colourful and vibrant House of Missoni - she is also the face of many of their fashion campaigns.
Margherita's style can be described as ethereal and eclectic with her outfits ranging from soft flowing nude gowns to loud prints, always accompanied by plenty of statement jewellery.
Here she is looking fresh-faced and effortlessly pretty - the playful yet classy glimpse of her midriff paired with the iconic zig-zag Missoni print transforms her into the perfect luxe-bohemian princess!
Best Face Forward
Margherita was lucky enough to inherit beautiful olive skin from her Italian parentage. Whilst sun-kissed skin gives off a healthy glow, it can lead to premature ageing due to harmful UV rays. Marghertia is in her late 20's, which is the ideal time to start incorporating anti-ageing products into one's skincare routine.
Yes to Blueberries Age Refresh Intensive Skin Repair Serum is a powerful blend combining organic cotton thistle (clinically proven to restore and repair age-damaged skin in 7 days) and antioxidant-rich blueberries and blackcurrant (rich in essential fatty acids to help nourish and soothe the skin). Skin is left feeling oh-so-glowy!
Marghertia prefers to let her outfits do the talking and therefore tends to keep her makeup light and natural. To achieve a soft, flawless, 'makeup-free' look, you can't go past erborian BB Créme au Ginseng. It is a unique 3-in-1 formulation that combines the benefits of moisturiser, sun protection and foundation, and has the ability to adapt to the skin's natural tone.
Margherita likes to stick to neutrals when it comes to eye makeup, however she has skipped eyeshadow altogether in the above look. Simply line the eyes with Eye of Horus Smokey Eye Pencil (smudge out the corners for a more sultry look) and apply a generous amount of Eye of Horus Mascara for well-defined lashes.
Margherita is rocking a gorgeous berry lip, which perfectly complements her minimal eye makeup. Try OCC Lip Tar in 'Strumpet' and apply it with your finger for a lovely 'just bitten' finish.
Margherita has beautiful long brown waves that always look healthy and shiny. U Little Beauty Natural Repair Hair Masque is rich is coconut oil and soya protein and will soothe tired, dry hair and deliver long-lasting nourishment.
