Actress Monica reveals her tips on clever holiday packing
Monica Bellucci takes "four bikinis" on holiday.
The actress-and-model has revealed the must-have garments and accessories that accompany her on annual breaks and keep her stylish away from home.
From form-fitting swimwear and fabulous accessories to flattering sundresses, the Italian beauty shared her top tips for the perfect holiday wardrobe.
“I take four bikinis: Eres, Dolce & Gabbana. And then I'll buy some when I'm away. Lisa Marie Fernandez does beautiful, flattering ones that really enhance your shape,” she said. “[My beach bag] has to be big because I've got two kids. I always take spares [of black sunglasses]. Sade is always my iPod holiday listening because she relaxes me.”
Monica also shared her idea of the perfect sundresses.
The brunette bombshell explained she favours a variety of styles and colours when heading into warmer climes.
“Wherever I go, there's always a little knee-length black dress in my case. I'm very curvy and I like to keep things classic and simple. A gypsy dress is the complete opposite of a little black dress, but on holiday it's the one time you can wear it,” she said. “[I also pack] a long dress that you can add jewellery to for evenings and wear plain during the day. Even though I'm photographed in black a lot, when I'm tanned I like to wear a colour.”
The star added that statement jewellery is a must.
Monica said she loves to jazz up casual holiday wear with bold pieces like earrings.
“I'm a huge jewellery fan. Costume jewellery is perfect for holidays, but it has to be great quality. Big chandelier earrings are a must in my case, at least one pair. They take up no space and they'll transform the plainest T-shirt,” she told telegraph.co.uk.
