Dialogues are intimate, tones are sweet and spontaneous, even hilarious.

Harmoniously scenes registered by Francesco’s grand-dad alternate to the main event of the ascent of Franca at the thrones of fashion rebel editorials’ Queen.

Afterward follow testimonials of who had the opportunity to work and create a personal connection with F.S. like Valentino Garavani, Donatella Versace, Giammetti, Bruce Weber  who had the chance to immortalize her like nobody, and so many others.

It goes on with the recollect of the editions of Vogue more emblematic of F.S.’s  audacity as the Black Issue, complaining the dim use of colored models, the Curvy edition, which gave access to the “plus size” in the fashion world, the edition concerning the trend of the stars to go in Rehab, the one on environmental disaster and the one on domestic abuses.

The true beauty of this incredible homage is expressed by the intrusive camera angles, by the bloopers originally meant to cut, in the transparency of the answers about the marriage and  the “Missed grace of the true love”.
The looks between the two are Heartwarming, as they were aware of the imminent separation.
