Sophia Loren - Style Icon

There's a lot of talk about sex symbols, screen sirens and women of our time but no one in my opinion compares to Sophia Loren. Born Sofia Villani Scicolone in 1934, the actress is a the true definition of a Roman Goddess. In an age where thin is in, it's refreshing to turn back time to get a glimpse of some real curves and a woman who doesn't have to resort to silicone to get them. What's more la bella Sophia can burn up the screen with her almond eyes and self-confidence alone. More than that, what other sestogenerian has appeared on the Pirelli calendar? True beauty...it's an attitude, a belief and a life.

Aw, I completely agree.
Even though she might not fit today's crazy beauty and skinny standards, she is truly an icon, and fashion icon, as much as Audrey Hepburn (with whom she also shares talent as an actress, incredible charisma, softness and feminity and inspiration from her beliefs and values in life.)
Great blog by the way, have a look at mine sometime!
