When Gabriele told me that we were going to shoot Sebastiano (left) and Sergio (right) for Grazia.it, I knew that they were going to be charming, stylish, cultured and good looking (Gabriele has impeccable taste). BUT, I was no way prepared for just how BEAUTIFUL they are (I can say that because I actually know their wives independently, and just so you know they are equally as stunning). Well after catching my breath from all of the major sibling handsomeness, I learned just how sweet, funny, crazy, and as you will see here, how amazingly stylish they are. Have a look and enjoy their interviews at the bottom of the page. Enjoy your weekends!
