The Sophia Looke

Sophia Loren Looke

Sophia Loren

"A woman's dress should be like a barbed-wire fence: serving its purpose without obstructing the view. Everything you see I owe to spaghetti. Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful." ~ Sophia Loren

Sophia Loren knew the power of the feminine shape. Known for her ample bosom and tiny waist, she accentuated both by wearing tucked in tops that exposed her shoulders and neck, and almost always a belt in a vibrant colour. Peasant tops with a deep scoop neck or fishermen inspired stripes, the focus was always on the figure. While timeless, she was also larger than life. For her red carpet appearances, Loren would choose dramatic color, metallics and lots of statement jewelry.
