Deva Cassell has been 'inspired' by fashion since she was a child

Deva Cassell says “the world of fashion has inspired” her since childhood.

‘The Beautiful Summer’ star - who is the daughter of screen siren Monica Belluci, 59, and actor Vincent Cassell. 57, along with her 14-year-old sister Leonie - believes “visionary” trends can piece together “a narrative of humanity history” through self-expression

The 19-year-old actress told Numero magazine: “The world of fashion has inspired me since I was a little girl, because I always felt it was important to externalize one’s ideas. Through fashion, which was often visionary, you can construct a narrative of human history.”

Deva, whose parents divorced in 2013 after 14 years of marriage, also enthused that Dior’s creative director, Maria Grazia Chirui means a lot to her because of how she “mixes influences” from her Italian and French backgrounds.

The fashion house’s brand ambassador said: “I have enormous respect for Dior and for the brand’s unique heritage. Maria Grazia Chiuri mixes influences from both France and Italy, and all of that speaks to me because I belong to both cultures.”
