Happy Birthday, Gina Lollobrigida!

Today is the birthday of gorgeous Italian actress and photojournalist Gina Lollobrigida (1927). ‘La Lollo’ was the first European sex symbol of the post war years and she paved the way into Hollywood for her younger colleagues Sophia Loren and Claudia Cardinale.

Even Lollo got to step out of her shoes when she gets her feet on a couch.. ;")

Doesn't she look lovely?

Thanks for sharing!

I remember my high school math instructor taught us the metric system by converting Gina's measurements from inches to centimeters. It kept us hormonal boys interested!
