You probably thought that was Sophia Loren.
You're wrong but it's okay because all most everyone that thinks of Old Hollywood glam think of Elizabeth Taylor, Marylin Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, or Sophia Loren. All are beautiful with curves and style that exude sexuality but Gina Lollobrigida is not often put into this category which is why she is one of my all-time Style Inspirations.
Lollobrigida is my style inspiration for whenever I get too stuck into my head trying to decide what to wear. I like to take it old school. There's something about that time that is just classic and so always in. Lollobrigida is just one that rocks that time like no other.
Lollobrigida is an Italian actress who was prominent in the 50's/60's. She starred in a few movies with huge actors such as Frank Sinatra, Rock Hudson, Sandra Dee, and Bobby Darin.
I discovered Lollobrigida when I was an insomniac during undergrad lol. She starred, in one of my now favorite movies, Come September with Rock Hudson and Bobby Darin. If you haven't seen it before, it's a great movie and I highly recommend it. After that movie, I was quickly obsessed with the outfits and style
Here she is wearing the same Christian Dior gown as Elizabeth Taylor. If this happened in today's world, the two wearing the same outfit would not be smiling at each other in a picture. That's for sure.
|Classiness at it's finest.|
And here she is meeting Queen Elizabeth II.
&More pictures of her beautiful-ness
&&Rocking Midi skirts like it was her job.
Perfect face. Perfect eyebrows. Perfect hourglass shape. Perfect outfits.
If she doesn't make you want to just wing out your eyeliner, slap on some lipstick, pumps and midi dress WITH a corset, I don't know what will. haha
Hope this inspires you as much as she inspires me.
