Marella Agnelli at the Villar Perosa in Turin, Italy.

In 1957, Richard Avedon called Donna Marella Agnelli "the prototype of a thousand years of Italian beauty," when he named her one of the world's "Eight Most Beautiful Women" in T&C. "She evokes the Renaissance by a look, or a turn of her head."
