FASHION // STYLE ICON: Sophia Loren












It’s the birthday of Hollywood’s grand Italian dame, Sophia Loren. She’s turning 79, and we can only pray we’ll look nearly that fine when we’re that age. She’s won over 50 awards during her career, including seven Golden Globes, a Grammy and the first-ever Oscar for a non-English speaking performance. Plus, she credits it all to spaghetti, y’all.

Here are a few top notch quotes from the actress:

On being sexy: “I think the quality of sexiness comes from within. It is something that is in you or it isn’t, and it really doesn’t have much to do with breasts or thighs or the pout of your lips.”

On vacation: “I always try to have a vacation.”

On winning the game: “Getting ahead in a difficult profession requires avid faith in yourself. That is why some people with mediocre talent, but with great inner drive, go so much further than people with vastly superior talent.”

On spaghetti: “Spaghetti can be eaten most successfully if you inhale it like a vacuum cleaner.”

Happy birthday, Ms. Loren!
