Two more pictures of the wonderful Alda Balestra . . .
The picture blow shows Ms. Balestra from her modeling career . . . backstage at a fashion show, with a sweet expression on her face. (Backstage fashion show photos of models are the best kind of fashion photos, because they capture the models as themselves. :-) )
The more recent picture of Ms. Balestra below, taken by Maxime Ballesteros, is from the opening of an exhibition honoring fashion designer Alexander McQueen in Berlin . . . her face still displaying the same sweetness.
It should be clear by now that time hasn't reduced her stature or diminished her beauty one iota. She's still one of the most important people in the fashion world. :-)
