Sophia Loren's Changing Looks
The up-and-comer tried her luck in a beauty contest and met her future husband Carlo Ponti (he was the judge, she was first runner up). Soon after, she got roles in three films.
Of her time as an Italian starlet, Loren has said: "I used to change my hair color almost every day...one day I would be a redhead, the next a blonde and finally a brunette."
While starring in El Cid with Charlton Heston, Loren sported a bouffant that brought out her ebullient side: "In the course of my film career I have had many different hairstyles and I found that each one highlighted various aspects of my looks and my personality."
In the '70s, the Firepower actress let her curls flow: "I always prefer a simple hairstyle, however formal the occasion."
"I wear glasses and I consider them a fashion accessory," the Pret-a-Porter star has said. The far-sighted beauty has designed her own line of spectacles for more than 20 years.
At 72, Loren was photographed in lingerie for the legendary Pirelli pinup calendar. "I enjoyed myself posing as if I was a little girl again," she told an Italian newspaper.
"It was a joy for me to be in [Nine], a type of film that I've never done before," the actress told People of the musical. It was really like a festa. And her costars confirmed that her legendary beauty remained in evidence. Said Fergie: "She looks stunning."
