The 29-year-old Italian heiress, who married longtime boyfriend Pierre Casiraghi (seventh in line to the Monaco throne) in two glamorous ceremonies in July, shows off her edgier side in a series of stunning portraits by Italian photographer Paolo Roversi.
The journalist and TV host works the camera in a selection of eye-catching couture gowns by Chanel, Valentino and Armani Privé. The sequin and feather designs mark a fun departure from her sweet and demure wedding day looks.
With her blonde hair pulled back in a gorgeous crown braid, Borromeo’s porcelain complexion is set off by deep red lips and dramatic eye makeup.

The stunning cover girl also opened up to the magazine about her public persona.
“I usually don’t like to do photo shoots…I am already more in the limelight than I would like,” she shared. “If it is not a work-related job, then I try to keep out of the spotlight. But how could I say no to a Vogue cover to show my grandchildren when I am a little old lady?”
Speaking of her life now and what the future holds, she said: “I have a few ideas, but I need to get the machine rolling with the new setup, and I need to organize my life now that I will be spending more time in Monaco.”
As for her privileged upbringing (she is a member of the ancient aristocratic House of Borromeo), she revealed: “I know that I am full of contradictions. For many years I checked certain aspects of my character because I feared being criticized. It was time for me to stop doing this. It was time for me to stop having guilt trips for certain objective facts — like the family I was born into or the person I live with. There are certain aspects of myself which I appreciate more, first and foremost, my work. But it isn’t just one aspect that makes up a person, it’s the whole that defines that person. One has to accept the fact that things are complicated and one should accept criticism with a certain degree of tranquility.”
