Beatrice Grannò is a triple threat in her native Rome: a popular TV actress, movie star and singer. Now the 29-year-old is about to break into the US market in a big way, after landing a primo gig on the second season of HBO hit “The White Lotus,” which filmed across Italy. The latest edition follows the escapades of (mostly) wealthy Americans — including familiar faces Jennifer Coolidge, Michael Imperioli and Aubrey Plaza — on vacation in Sicily. Grannò plays local Mia, who’s not staying at the resort but always seems to wind up there. The actress reveled in the chance to share Italian culture, architecture and food with her Hollywood co-stars, telling Alexa that the crew often ended up at BamBar, known in Taormina for its incredible granita (a frozen-fruit specialty). Here are a few of Grannò’s other tips for embracing la dolce vita without a passport. 
“I love how this necklace is almost a collar; it evokes the ethereal quality of a fairy.”
“Gucci’s attitude always attracted me. Their clothes speak for you. I like the silhouette and design of this dress — it’s very romantic.”
“I have a lot of fun changing my makeup look depending on where I’m going and how I’m feeling. A pink color like this one can make any outfit pop.”
“Cross-body bags are the easiest to wear, especially when I’m on my way to and from set or traveling. This bag can be worn with anything!”
“I wore this jacket for a photo shoot, and it definitely gave me a whole new level of confidence.”  
“‘D’oro’ means golden, and Bouquet d’Oro is a perfumed brightening powder. I’ve always been obsessed with glitter because sometimes it hides a bad day. I especially love this because it’s for skin and hair, and it smells so beautiful.”
“You can never have too many sunglasses! I love this brand because their eyewear is handmade in Italy, and they come in so many different styles that can reflect your personality.”
“These red shoes are modern but with a sensation of retro. I’ll never get tired of this brand; every time I wear them, I feel unique and free.”
“I will never forget one of the first nights filming ‘The White Lotus’ at the Four Seasons in Taormina. Este Haim organized a karaoke party at the hotel, and we all sang. It felt like we had known each other for a long time.”
“This is my favorite red wine. It’s Sicilian. It makes me happy because it has notes of red fruit and flowers. Sometimes I keep the bottle once it’s empty because I love the drawing on the label.”
