Italian mega-babe Monica Bellucci started modeling in 1988, a full 15 years before we had any idea she existed. It wasn’t until she swapped spit with Keanu in “Matrix: Reloaded” that she entered our lives and our dreams. In the years since, Bellucci’s made a bunch of movies we’d never want to see (“The Private Lives of Pippa Lee,” “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”) and has managed to look amazing the whole time. Meanwhile, she was also getting her picture taken for fancy fashion magazines and nearly setting the pages on fire.
A new book from the publisher Rizzoli pulls together hundreds of those pictures into a giant tome of titillation, a volume of voluptuousness, an opus of awesome. You get the point. We were able to score a few photos from the book, and they’re below. If you want to see everything in this book you’re going to have to shell out for the hardback. Get it here or here.
