Bombshells: Sophia Loren

Sophia is a true bombshell, in the classic sense of the word. She's most known for her curves and those eyes but she also has sense of style that enhanced her god-given features. 

Born Sofia Scicolone in Italy in 1934, she started her career at the age of 14 when she entered a beauty pageant. She didn't win, but it did lead to acting lessons. She got bit parts here and there until the 1950's when she signed a 5 picture contract with Paramount that launched her international career. She then changed her name to Sophia Loren. 

She was the first woman to win a Best Actress Oscar in a foreign language film for the film

Two Women

in 1962. 

Here she is with Clark Gable in

It Started in Naples (1959).

"There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age." - Sophia Loren

Bombshells: Carole Lombard

Carole Lombard is a true style icon. She could pull off casual looks just as well as complete silver screen glamour. A natural beauty, best known for her screwball comedies of the 1930s, she is still an inspiration.

A young Carole (born Jane Alice Peters) in the 1920's. Those eyes were made for black and white films.

Super stylish. I love this outfit. 

Stunning Old Hollywood glamour. You can see why she was the highest paid actress in her time. 

She is known for saying: “I’ve lived by a man’s code designed to fit a man’s world, yet at the same time I never forget that a woman’s first job is to choose the right shade of lipstick.” 

The love's of their lives. I can't imagine a better looking couple! 

Clark Gable- swoon! 

Carole was tragically killed in a plane crash with her Mother in 1942 at the age of 33. Her and Clark were only married for 3 years. So sad. 

Her style inspiration and wonderful films will always live on.
