There's no better day to give a Style Icon shoutout to that Milanese (ok she was born near Varese, but she's been living here since like forever anyway) icon of cool, la signora Rosita Missoni, designer of multicolor, multilayered talents, creative mind of museum-grade greatness, pioneering businesswoman since the early 1950s, classical music lover who, together with her husband (of 55 years this year!) Tai and a bunch of adorable grandkids, is a constant presence at Scala concerts and operas.
La signora Rosita just turned an incredibly youthful and active 77: OC hereby states she can only hope to age, one day, half as beautifully as la signora Rosita is doing.
