The description of Clarissa Burt shown in the title field above is incomplete. Yes, she has been a model and an actress, but she has in fact been so much more.
Clarissa Burt became a model with the Wilhelmina modeling agency at the age of eighteen. The Philadelphia-born Ms. Burt soon relocated to Milan and went on to do numerous fashion shows both there and in cities such as New York and Paris. She also accumulated an impressive number of fashion magazines whose covers she graced, such as Cosmopolitan, Harper’s Bazaar, and Vogue, as well as many cosmetics ads.
As an actress, she has appeared in various Italian films such as Caruso Pascoski di Padre Polacco and Casablanca, Casablanca, as well as the sequel to The Neverending Story.
But she has several other credits to her name that involve neither modeling nor acting. She's been a beauty editor for publications as The LA Fashion Magazine and, Runway, and her articles have appeared in the Huffington Post. She's also done beauty segments for Italian television, and she is a public speaker who is involved with women's activism for social change.
All that, and more. For more information about this lovely and versatile woman, go to her Web site here.
