Writing about Isabella Rossellini’s return to Lancôme (here), I remembered something I saved from my days as a fashion magazine editor—


a press photo of the model.


Can we just take a moment to take in her beauty. This photo still takes my breath away.

Rossellini was the first face of Lancôme beginning in 1983. This print was part of a media package that was sent out by the PR department by mail—for those of you who don’t remember life before email, this involved envelope + stamps= delivered by hand.

I adored Isabella.

Still do.
