Margherita Missoni (born February 21, 1983)[citation needed] is known as heiress to her family's Missoni fashion house, which was founded by her grandparents, as well as her appearances in Missoni fashion campaigns as a model,[1] and as an aspiring actress.[2] Missoni currently lives in New York City following her re-location from Italy to pursue acting.


Margherita Missoni was born in Italy[3] and grew up in the Italian countryside, spending weekends in Milan.[4] She studied philosophy at Columbia University.

However, after she moved to New York, she struggled emotionally when her academic credits could not transfer to the United States educational system. Following this obstacle, Missoni chose to explore her first love, theatre.[3]

She says her relationship with her family is close, particularly her connection with her sister and her mother.[3]

On June 23, 2012, she married the race car driver, Eugenio Amos (b. 1985) in Brunello, Italy. Their son Otto Hermann Amos was born on September 6, 2013.


Before she was featured in Missoni campaigns, she was a company ambassador, a duty entailing promotion at fashion related events. In her own words, Missoni described becoming the face of a Missoni campaign as "a natural evolution".[1]

Currently,[when?] Missoni is studying acting in New York with hopes of success in the entertainment industry.[3][4] In 2006, she appeared in Jean Genet’s The Maids, based on a true story of two maids who kill their mistress.[2]

He received the America Award of the Italy-USA Foundation in 2014.
