Eight Overrated Ladies of the Eighties (#5)

5) Isabella Rossellini- If you thought I was going to get through this list without trashing an Italian, you don't know me very well. A head-on look at Isabella indicates that she is a pretty attractive broad. If you really want to pick nits, you could say her face is disproportionately wide.
Rossellini's major flaw only becomes apparent when you see her profile. The woman has an unsightly hook nose. A buzzard's beak like that should be tearing through wildebeest carcasses, not (dis)gracing the covers of Vogue and Cosmo.
Somehow, some people made the claim that she was one of the most beautiful women in the world. She appeared on the cover of every other magazine in the 80s. I recall an episode of Friends in which Ross and Chandler discussed whether she belonged on their Top 10 lists. Really? What am I missing here?
I'm not going to lie; Rossellini's scenes in Blue Velvet are super-hot. But I'm a sucker for a chick getting railed at knifepoint by a nitrous-huffing sociopath. It doesn't really matter who she is.

Tremont, can you contrive a list whereby you say something negative about Vinny Delpino?
