WHO’S THAT GIRL?: Backstage at Valentino, photographers scrambled to get a shot of designer Maria Grazia Chiuri posing with a stunning young woman, looking radiant in an ivory eyelet dress from the collection.

First assumption was that she was the latest ingénue of Italian cinema, but no: “This is my daughter,” said Chiuri. “She’s 18 years old.”

Indeed, Rachele Regini is not an aspiring actress or model, but a very charming high school senior, finishing school in London.

“Exams!,” she said, noting she always comes to her mother’s show. “My mom wants me to see it and I really want to see it.” Does she have plans to pursue fashion after graduation? “I really like fashion,” said Regine. “I was born in it, but I’m not sure. Right now, I’m just focusing on studying and figuring out what I want to do in the future. Which could be fashion. I don’t know!”
