Allow me to begin by swooning over Alessandra de Stefano, so damn stylish with her red polka dot foulard and her deep side-parted hair. GURL, you have no idea how much I am heart-eyes over you. Traveling with a Grand Tour and presenting a daily show must be so exhausting, and yet Alessandra is always full of verve, giving us her best self. So it was endearing and downright cute when, for the first quarter of the show, she kept referring to “maglia rosa” mistakenly as “maglia gialla,” the yellow jersey.
