What's the first thing that comes to mind when you think about Amber Valletta? Maybe it's the '90s, maybe it's her incredible cheekbones and blue eyes or maybe it's her role as Lydia in Revenge (if you know, you know). The model-turned-actress has a career that's spanned 30 years and has seen her work for the likes of Louis Vuitton, Prada, Gucci and, of course, Versace. More recently, she's worked with emerging designers and the Mercedes-Benz International Designer Exchange Program (IDEP), which is an incredible program that has supported hundreds of young design talent. We recently had the chance to chat with her about this project, what she thinks about the reemergence of the supermodels and what her favourite item of clothing is (it's not what we were expecting).
