Barbara Matera at Blumarine: Political Bodies

It's not so often you see a member of the European Parliament—and a statuesque blonde beauty to boot—at a fashion show.

It's not so often you see a member of the European Parliament—and a statuesque blonde beauty to boot—at a fashion show, but Barbara Matera made little of it at the Blumarine show on Friday.

 

"I know [designer Anna Molinari] and her family and I feel at home here,” said Matera, a former actress and TV show presenter. Matera’s candidacy was supported by Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and his People of Freedom Party, whose preference for buxom ladies in politics has caused a brouhaha in Italy and abroad. But Matera brushed it off, saying Blumarine helps her to "be more confident and feminine on a daily basis and for big events."
