How Martini Threw a Party That Made Britney's Work Bitch a Reality

This weekend marks the 150th anniversary of Martini - essentially the world's favorite vermouth. The brand's Italian style and passion was brought to life in Lake Como, at what can only be described as the most lavish and beautifully art directed party of Milan Fashion Week. With heritage in fashion, motor sports, cinema and art - the brand took over the palatial Villa Erba and, without knowing, nodding to the lyrics of the song du jour, Work Bitch by Britney Spears in the most literal sense ever against backdrop of the Italian lakes. Here's how it went down.

You want a hot body?

Cue special guest Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
