Among the guests of the final evening of the Sanremo Festival there is Ornella Vanoni: the singer has lost none of her proverbial irony and in fact immediately staged a funny gag with the conductors. At 86, with a very long career behind her, Vanoni is still a free spirit and doesn’t care (rightly) about rules and conventions. If last year she surprised everyone by taking the stage in jeans, this year she returns with a very chic dress with a neckline that leaves the shoulders bare.
Vanoni is more irreverent than her younger colleagues
In addition to being an exceptional singer, Vanoni is famous for her total sincerity: she always says what she thinks, without fear of making gaffe, and has never lost her shrewd spirit. During the final in Sanremo she went down the stairs with the help of Amadeus and Fiorello, but she immediately showed who is in charge once she got to the microphone. In fact, first he kindly made fun of Fiorello: “But is your passion to sing? – he asks – It’s a music festival, if you sing too it’s not good, who are we?“. She spared not even a joke on the look of maestro Leonardo De Amicis and then turned to the orchestra:”They are more important than the public, maybe they understand more. But they are tired, worn out“.
The ageless style of Ornella Vanoni
Who said a lady in her eighties has to cover up or wear boring baggy clothes? The Vanoni is very elegant with a black dress with a boat neckline and a full skirt, completed by a thin belt that enhances the waist. A dress that would look good even on a thirty-year-old and that becomes sophisticated on her: the bare shoulders are the extra touch that does not go unnoticed and that does not look bad at all. Before leaving the stage then he gets to ask for a “hip bone“greetings to Amadeus, Covid or not Covid. Elegant and irreverent at any age, Vanoni has shown more spirit than many of her younger colleagues: maybe you all reach 86 with your determination, dear Ornella.
