Dress Like an Icon...Claudia Cardinale

I would have posted this a few days ago, but Blogger has been cruel to me and keeping me from updating. But Claudia is so gorgeous that I'm sure all will be forgiven, right?

"To do this kind of work [acting], you have to be very strong, otherwise you lose your personality, your identity. "
Claudia Cardinale. Claudia certainly managed to maintain personality, a feisty pro-feminism one too. And all the while maintaining impeccable personal style, that only those lucky enough to be Italian can manage. But in case you were not born in the land of pasta, and have ever tried your hand at the Cardinale, look no further for help...

I'm such a different type to the dark, seductive Claudia, but I certainly adore her - especially her eyes. (What's up with blogger? they are having some problems lately, I think)
