The star of the week in Milan was not some teenage spring chicken, but Isabella Rossellini, 41, who opened the Dolce e Gabbana and Industria shows and also did a turn at Genny. 'I was a little nervous,' she admitted after the Genny show. 'But this is fun. I will be back next season, if I'm not filming.'
Why the glut of Rossellini appearances? The reason is that Lancome,the cosmetics giant which has had the actress and model under a lucrative contract for 10 years, has dropped its exclusivity clause - leaving her free to expand her modelling career.
