Maria Carfanga, Italy
Showgirl turned politician, she turned heads when she joined Italian politics not for being a beauty, but because of her ability to work with diligence and honesty. This is the story of Maria Carfanga, also known as ‘Mara la bella’. In her political career, she passed many bills, largely impactful being the one against street prostitution. Prior to her political career, Maria had appeared on television in programmes like ‘La Domenica del Villaggio’, ‘Piazza Grande’ etc and she also posed topless for ‘Maxim’. The Italian beauty refrains from speaking about her career as model. She averred, “I am a bit of a prude and I found getting undressed in front of a camera not a pleasant experience.” As far as her appearance is concerned, her style is super chic and often inspired from the runway.
