Sophia Loren started her career at the age of 14 after entering a beauty pageant and from there carved out a successful career in film. Her sense of style remains a constant source of fashion inspiration. I know she’s always been a great style icon for chic, ladylike dressing with just the right amount of sexiness. Loren was all about a strong hourglass silhouette with fitted dresses that would accentuate her slim waist and makeup that would accentuate her strong pout (look out Angelina Jolie!). It’s no wonder her influence on fashion is so enduring.

A vision in white. Look at that waist!
Wearing a playful polka dot print.
Proof that trends always make a comeback! The pleated skirt and white heels wouldn’t look out of place in a boutique today.
