FEMME FATALE - SOPHIA LOREN


"She walks with her fine head erect, and there is the suggestion of a swagger - giving the impression of utter confidence, suggesting that she is the mistress of every situation. It is merely a facade to hide her innate shyness."
Vittorio de Sica


The black coq feather hat and stole by Forquet of Rome


"Sophia is, as the Americans say, all woman.  Her femininity is explosive, and she is the very embodiment of health,in mind and body.  She has a passionate love of life, and yearns to live it to the full."
Vittorio de Sica


ecco
SOPHIA
LOREN
            A great Beauty, a fiery actress, a sort of natural marvel like Halley's Comet - and like it, trailing sparks.....
