Isabella Rossellini…

11 Feb

… had it easy. Not everyone gets the genes of Ingrid Bergman and Roberto Rossellini. So she was more or less doomed to be beautiful and talented. And one of her talents is undoubtedly to be beautiful. She’s not in the überbody league, I fear, even if she does have an amazing face (thanks mum). But she always managed to convey intensity and hidden drama, which requires much more than good looks. In the hands of Mapplethorpe, the result is a kill.

Silent Wonders

Therefore it’s not surprising she put a spell on David Lynch, who has a sharp eye for odd beauty.

Subtle danger

We knew since Death Becomes Her that nothing could stop her, and she could get away with improbable roles.

Greatest. Bathrobe. Ever.

I’ve always admired her sense of being feminine even when making fun of herself. But, my little shrimps, I would never have guessed she could pull sexy against this kind of odds.

A true role model. Do not miss the snake, the dolphin and the praying mantis. Who would have thought that God’s creation was filled with such filth?

    The Manolo is moderately obsessed with the Isabella Rossellini. She is so beautiful and so wonderfully strange, how could one not be obsessed?

    By the way, when the Manolo posted the Green Porno videos last year, one of the Manolo’s internet friends left the very amusing comment about the snail video.

    Wonderfully strange, indeed. A woman of character and for me a role model.
    Now how on earth could your post escape my vigilance, I don’t know.
    I could die of shame. But if it’s a way to have you commenting here, I guess I’ll drink myself past the shame and will be plundering the whole Manolosphere!
