While on my much needed vacation in Rome, I enjoyed soaking in all aspects of Italian culture. From breathtaking ruins to exquisite cuisine and champagne, the eternal city was even more fabulous than I could have imagined. My diet may have consisted of pasta and cappuccinos, but fashion was always on the menu. Italian women have a certain flair for sultry elegance and who does this better than Sophia Loren? The bombshell’s acting prowess revolutionized film just as her vivacious wardrobe set the bar for hollywood glamour. Cocktail hour calls for skin-tight LBDs and diamond dazzlers, while yachting around Sicily requires a more carefree uniform of nautical separates and playful prints. Wherever your journeys may take you, always finish off your look with a sexy flick of black eyeliner. Sophia Loren’s unrivaled beauty and everlasting charm have cemented her as an Italian style icon to emulate.
