Can you guess who she is?

Can you guess

She would have turned 100 years old this month. In this picture she wears a simple skirt, a simple sweater, but a big smile! A friend said: “ For her to dress up for big events means to wear a clean shirt”. An issue of Vogue in 1959 describes her as a feminine, petite lady with pink lipstick, a small nose, not beautiful but attractive, mostly because “she is passionate, enthusiastic, warm…a woman definetely happy with only a hint of rage in her eyes”.

A simple lady…and yet…she became an icon in the world of design.

Please don’t comment on Facebook or other social media, but only on this post, so nobody could see the answers before they are published by me. The first correct answer will have “an honorable mention” and a link to their website or blog.

The answers will be published all together in the New Year.

©2012 Brillante Interiors writes about new trends, timeless decor, iconic pieces, design ideas, or at times just musing about "a certain Italian way of doing things".
