A GOLDEN OLDIE.

After reading a post written by my old friend Keith of The Dino Lounge just before the weekend, and as a result of some advice from Jackie of Painted Veil I got me an idea to do a post on one of the golden oldies. She was born long before any of us, she could have been the great, great granny of most of us, yet she still carries herself with such style elegance and dignity.
Sofia Villani Scicolone, better known as Sofia Loren, was born in Rome on the 20th of September 1934.

Looking at this pic of her in hot pants and high heels, flaunting a figure to die for, I can't help but wonder what she would think if she had to look at it now, surely it will bring back a hole heap of great memories.



As a kid, I used to, and even today still I admire her true beauty!

A not so young anymore Sofia, dressed in a red dress and high heeled sandals, looking steaming hot, sexy and stunningly beautiful.



Had that been my car, I would have had a heart attack! A very young Sofia sitting a dent into, and scratching the paint off with her high heeled shoes, of what looks like some rich dude's Aston Martin's hood.



An older Sofia, looking very elegant and still sexy for her age.



Nice pics of her are unfortunately very hard to come by, but here is a last one of her when she obviously was very young still.



I think, and this is purely my opinion, she got more beautiful in her late 30's to early 40's, she was not that good looking when she was very young, but that is open to discussion. Please feel free to disagree with me.... I know some cannot wait to do just that.....

I wish you all a wonderful day!

Hey Maxi, no need to be sorry, she was at her peek long before you were born already ...lol... But I am glad to hear that you agree with me. I have added your url to my bloglist, and copied your badge also. Good luck on picking up the missing pieces, it is tough to loose everything like that.

Wow Sofia!! She is one beautiful woman id say she was pretty as a younger woman but as she aged i have to agree with you she was totally stunning in her 30s and 40s

You did it and I haven't thought of Sophia in years!!

Wow she really was and still is quite the looker!!

Wow what a bombshell she was. There aren't many nowadays that can carry off that very lush look and still be so elegant!!

Thanks for the mention and also for these fantastic photos.

I think she is super hot in the red dress!!

I hope you have a super day Colin!!
Hugs,
Jackie

Lol, my man would be having a heart attack with you! he tells me constantly, "If I owned a car like that I wouldn't even let you drive it!" So I am assuming that would mean no sitting on it either!

AJ, welcome to my site, yes she has aged exceptionally well, and even today at 75 years old she will still give some a good run for their money. she carries herself with dignity and flair.

Jackie, so glad I could surprise you and remind you of this really special old star. I always, from a very young age admired her for her absolute beauty and sex appeal.
Well Jackie, it was your idea and therefor you deserve to be mentioned, thanks for the suggestion, and thanks for the great friendship.
hugs!

hehehe, Marie, you bet no sitting on it! to be honest, when ever I see someone leaning against my car, I complain about it, and I drive a small, cheap little car(vw golf - rabbit as you guys know them) but if I had such a nice car, i reckon will also not allow Yolande to drive it...but dont tell her that...
Thanks for commenting, but what do you think of our star? I know you like the old classic movies, so you must have seen quite a few of hers!
Have a wonderful day!

Mystery Man said...

dude, i'd have been right there in the hospital with you having a heartattack myself had she gotten on my car with the heels....lol...or maybe it would have been just the fact that a woman that hot was on the hood...lol

i have to go back and look, but i featured her in one of my eye candy posts earlier this year.

i don't disagree with you about her looking better in her late 30-40s. i think that was the innacle of her beauty...not that she turned into an old hag or anything.

such a pretty lady! x

Sang said...

i think i quite agree with you.
well, of course she's way above average, but she seems to show a kind of calm beauty in her late 30s. but of course she's totally stunning when she's young, too.
thanx for sharing, enjoyed this post.

sexylegsandbody said...

Mystery Man...hehehe, I think most of us would have felt the same about heels on our car's hoods...
and yes, she is still a very stylish and proud old lady, even at the ripe age of 75!

Joelyne, thanks, she is awesome! Thanks for visiting!

Sang, hi and welcome to my site! I think a lot of today's stars might have learned a lot from her, (if they cared) she stayed married to her hubby, who was quite a lot older than her for years until his death. If I am not mistaken his name was Carlo Ponti, but I might be confused. Bottom line is, she, as far as I know has had a very clean life, always a lady! a true beauty, and a brilliant actress.
I am glad you enjoyed the post, thanks for visiting and leaving your thoughts with us, and please visit again soon. YOu are always welcome.

Dorothy L said...

Well done Collin...

She was a definite beauty :)

Marie 'entrain said...

Sophia Loren is amazing, she has a aged so gracefully. I wish I had half of what she had. She looks just a beautiful now as she did when she was young.

Hi Marie, thanks, I knew you would like her, I am sure you have more than half the qualities she has, maybe just in another form.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us!
