Loren rose to fame as a comedic actress whose curvaceous figure made her a sex symbol embodying the ideal of Italian femininity. However Loren’s acting abilities and timeless elegance soon sealed her position as an Italian icon, unmatched by any other. In 1960, Loren became the first Italian woman to win an Oscar for her performance in La Ciocciara, directed by Vittorio De Sica.
Here she is lounging with her husband Carlo Ponti.
