The smart set’s talking about... The new Bellucci beauty


HER mother’s blossoming romance with Hollywood director Tim Burton, ex- boyfriend of Helena Bonham Carter, has been the talk of showbusine­ss. But Monica Bellucci’s daughter Deva Cassel has been making a splash on her own merits this week.

The 18-year-old, whose father is the French actor Vincent Cassel, almost brought the runway to a halt as she sashayed down the catwalk for Dolce & Gabbana during Milan Fashion Week.

‘She’s the spitting image of her mother but isn’t another “nepo baby”,’ one fashion insider tells me. ‘She is talented and set for stardom beyond being a model.’

Deva followed in Bellucci’s footsteps when she made her modelling debut aged 15 with Dolce & Gabbana. Her mother made her name as the face of the Italian brand.

Monica, 58, became the oldest Bond girl in 2015’s Spectre and Deva is also on course for a big-screen career.

She made her acting debut last year as a wild and provocativ­e artists’ model named Amelia in Italian director Laura Luchetti’s film The Beautiful Summer.
