La Dolce Vita

1960s Italian style epitomes La Dolce Vita as captured and experienced by the photographer Benno Graziani.

Catherine Deneuve and her sister Francoise Dorleac dancing with Benno Graziani:

Dinner on Aristotle Onassis' yacht The Christina:

The Countess Rudi Crespi at a ball in Venice:

Jackie Kennedy wrote to a friend, "I am experiencing, in Italy, the most beautiful vacation of my life."  (John F Kennedy wrote to Jackie saying more Caroline and John, less Agnelli):

Gianni Agnelli and Heidi van Salvisberg.  Really does it get better then this?!  (Does anyone know anything about the beautiful and incredibly sexy Heidi van Salvisberg?  Do tell if you do!  I would love to know more about her):

All photographs from the book Benno Graziani Collection privée

And a fabulous 1960s heavy silk dress by Botti with green hand curled feathers across the shoulders.  The dress is beautifully made.  The hem is weighted all around.  Very Claudia Cardinale at her most gorgeous non?!  Si!
