Ceretti was one of seven models on the cover of Vogue's March 2017 issue, which celebrated the magazine's 125th anniversary in print.

In 2017 she was Model of the Year 2017 for the annual Readers' Choice Awards at models.com and appeared alongside Irina Shayk, Julia Nobis, Carolyn Murphy and Raquel Zimmermann.

Vittoria CerettiIn the same year she was chosen as the protagonist of Alexander McQueen's Spring/Summer 2017 campaign created by Jamie Hawkesworth. She was immortalized together with Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid in the Fendi advertising campaign - Spring/Summer 2017.

Givenchy reconfirmed her face for the Spring/Summer 2017 together with other models and also appears in the Bottega Veneta Spring/Summer 2017 campaign.

In 2017 she was also chosen as the testimonial of the Fall/Winter 2017/18 campaign of the Versace maison taken by Bruce Weber, alongside Gigi Hadid, Mica Arganaraz and Taylor Hill.

According to Vogue Italia, Vittoria Ceretti was the most searched model of 2018, on their website. Vittoria is currently ranked as an "Industry Icon" by models.com.

Vittoria CerettiIn an interview for Vogue Paris, Ceretti mentioned that she would have studied either acting or psychology if she hadn't begun a career as a model. She married Matteo Milleri, an Italian DJ, on June 1, 2020, in Ibiza, Spain.

While Coronavirus robbed many would-be brides and grooms of their wedding day, Italian model Vittoria Ceretti capitalised on the easing restrictions and wed her fiancé in a quaint ceremony in Ibiza, Spain.

Against the white-washed walls and olive groves of the Spanish island, the model married Italian DJ, Matteo Milleri, one half of DJ duo, Tale of Us, in a beautifully simple ceremony.

When Vittoria Ceretti steps on the runway, one can almost hear the collective gasp of the audiences' breath. With Milan Fashion Week kicking off tomorrow, her momentum is set to explode.

The 18-year-old Italian beauty has become the certain model-of-the-moment, with her high cheekbones and gorgeous hazel eyes dramatizing the Spring season’s lines.

Fashion Week is a bit of a homecoming for Ceretti, who moved to Long Island last spring but hails from the Italian town of Brescia and spent her childhood traveling to the big city.

“My first show was in Milan,” she tells me of her debut, which came not long after she won an Elite Model Look contest at 14.

Vittoria Ceretti“I walked for designer Kristina Ti - I was super-stressed because I was so little, but it was definitely a lot of fun.”

From there came a long string of collaborations with Dolce & Gabbana, and then two years ago, her first global push, completing the famed month-long, four-city tour.

Back in Milan, she’ll make time to stop by Corso Buenos Aires for a heaping plate of seafood and loads of pizza. (“I don’t really do healthy snacks!”)

Last season, she graced the runway for Prada for the first time, checking a major name off her personal list of goals. “I’ve always wanted to walk Prada, since I’m Italian,” she says. “It was really a big thing for me.”

Sporting a bare face and a darkly romantic lips for the label’s Fall 2016 show, Ceretti described the makeup as a rather elevated take on her own everyday look. “I don’t really do beauty,” she quipped with a laugh.

There’s a nameless drugstore soap to wash her face with, and a Dolce & Gabbana cream that she' s loved for ages: “My skin breaks out easily, and this one is perfect,” she explains.

For hair, it is plied with conditioner and loosely air-dried au naturel. “If I’m going out and want to go crazy, I put on mascara—and that’s it,” she says. It's not as though she needs anything else anyway.

The Italian model was one of the most successful breakout stars of 2018, quickly establishing herself as a sought-after face for runways and advertising campaigns alike.

Vittoria CerettiShe has a string of Vogue covers to her credit, including American Vogue’s 125th anniversary issue, where she starred alongside Ashley Graham, Adwoa Aboah, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Liu Wen and Imaan Hammam - Vogue Germany's tribute to the late Karl Lagerfeld for its July 2019 issue.

She was also the face of Dolce & Gabbana’s cosmetics line. In the Spring/Summer 2017 season, Ceretti walked a total of 41 shows including Dior, Valentino and Chanel.

Born in Brescia, Italy, Ceretti’s first foray into modelling was at the age of 14, when she made the final round of Elite’s Model Look contest.

Not long after, the finalist was signed by the agency and walked in her first show in Milan for designer Kristina Ti. She has since walked for the likes of Dior, Celine, Alexander McQueen and Louis Vuitton.

Ceretti’s versatile, classic look has landed her campaigns for both fashion and beauty markets. As well as Dolce & Gabbana beauty, the model has fronted ad campaigns for Chanel, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, Versace, Moschino and Fendi.

In 2018 she got the cover of Vogue England for May under the direction of the new editor in chief Edward Enninful. The issue, created by Craig McDean, portrays Ceretti and eight other models as new protagonists of the international fashion scene.

Among the last 2018 campaigns for which she posed: Tiffany & Co. "All You Need is Love Fragrance 2018" with photographer: Steven Meisel, Proenza Schouler "Arizona Fragrance" with photographer: Tylor Lebon , Fendi Spring/Summer 2018 with photographer: Karl Lagerfeld, Zara Spring/Summer 2018 with photographer: Steven Meisel.

On February 22, 2021 she was officially announced as co-host of the third evening of the seventy-first edition of the Sanremo Festival, going to support Amadeus and Fiorello.

Bonesetters Waiting Room

In the Bonesetter's Waiting Room:
Travels Through Indian Medicine

BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week India defies definition, and the story of medicine in India is similarly rich and complex: shaped by unique challenges and opportunities, uniting cutting-edge technological developments with ancient cultural traditions, fuelled by political changes which transformed the lives of millions and moulded by the energy of forceful individuals. Here, Aarathi Prasad investigates how Indian medicine came to be the way it is. Her travels will take her to bonesetter clinics in Jaipur and Hyderabad and the waiting-rooms of Bollywood's best plastic surgeons, and introduce her to traditional healers as well as the world-beating heart surgeon who is revolutionising treatment of the poor around the globe.

Like a Virgin

Exploring the Frontiers of Conception

Sexual evolution is a slippery business. Like all mammals, we humans seem to have been left no choice in the matter: even though it is costly, inefficient and dangerous, if we want to reproduce we simply have to have sex. Yet most human cultures tell the tale of a maiden who gives birth untouched by a man; and in the wild there are plenty of creatures such as turkeys, komodo dragons, sharks and the 'Jesus Christ' lizard (which walks on water, too) and that take various approaches to reproducing without sex.

In LIKE A VIRGIN, the biology writer Aarathi Prasad discusses how reproduction without sex is achieved in animals and explores why evolution has not made it an option for humans yet. In doing so, she provides a quirky, entertaining and perceptive overview of the mysteries of evolutionary biology, sex and reproduction – past, present and future.

It is a remarkable story that ranges across Greek mythology, natural history, agriculture, conservation and medicine; takes in some of the most exciting areas of developmental genetics and molecular biology that other popular science books largely ignore; and is packed full of a cast of amazing characters, be they obscure animals or eccentric scientists such as the respected geneticist Dr Helen Spurway who in the UK in the 1950s unwittingly sparked a nationwide search for a virgin mother.

There is now a plethora of strategies being developed in reproductive medicine that could ultimately keep our species going in a world of embellished sex: the creation of artificial eggs and sperm from bone marrow, labs-on-chips on which eggs are fertilized, silicone wombs and artificial wombs (where fetuses can spend their full nine months), and even research to prepare us for reproduction in space. What is more, we are finally beginning to understand what genetic modifications are needed to allow for the creation of women who could have babies without having sex. Now that we have the competent hand of science in our lives, will girls still need men?
