Monica Bellucci appeared on the cover of Vogue Italia with her daughter Deva Cassel

Italian model and actress Monica Bellucci and her daughter, Deva Cassel, appeared in the July issue of Vogue Italia. Both appeared in black dresses from the fashion house Dolce & Gabbana.

The author of the pictures was the famous fashion photographer Paolo Roversi, the stylist was Dazed editor Ibrahim Kamara.

As Roversi wrote in his Instagram profile, the fact that Monica is slightly off to the side carries a special meaning.

“Monica’s symbolic gesture reflects her desire to step aside, making way for Deva. It deserves respect: making way for those who come after us (the daughter, the successor) is not something we are used to seeing often.” Paolo Roversi
