The Guardian touches on the question that's on our minds too—"Dello Russo has collected a vast quantity of clothes, which she keeps in the Milanese apartment next to the one in which she lives with her dog, Cucciolina. I can't quite get to the heart of her finances.

All she will offer is: 'Of course, I am journalist! Then I have discount, I am privileged!'" [Guardian]
