Newly elected US President tycoon Donald Trump was married to two top models: Ivana Zelnickova Trump and Melania Knauss. 


Valentino is owned by the Arabian Emirates; Krizia is owned by non – Italian hands: the famous “Made in Italy” logo was born here to be sold away.


Another fashion-related trademark is owned by non-Italian guys: Bulgari.


Top models in music? In the 80s few top models made amazing albums, although they were properly professional singers: We pay homage to Sade, Brenda Russell, the late Whitney Houston started as a top model and ended up as a vocalist. Later Naomi Campbell did an album. The most successful was the lovely Sade.

Rock on girls with your style!
