  • Sophia Loren:
    a masterclass in red-carpet glamor

    THE BEAUTY

    TIP-OFF:

    Erno Laszlo
    Phormula 3-9

    This super-balm was created in 1927 by Erno Laszlo to heal the Princess of Hungary's acne. Laszlo then moved to Hollywood, treating everyone from Katharine Hepburn to Marilyn Monroe – for whom he re-formulated the balm. The latest concoction, Phormula 3-9, created after Laszlo's death from his hand-written notes, is an antidote to dry skin and post-surgery scarring. No A-list beauty cabinet is complete without it.

    THE ICON:

    Sophia Loren

    Who: The Italian screen siren
    whose movie-star credentials make
    her a red-carpet veteran.

    Her look: With the most famous hourglass figure in the business,
    her gowns are body-hugging, plunging
    and complemented with
    lashings of diamonds.

    The runway tribute: Jason Wu's
    SS13 corseted dresses embrace
    feminine curves.

    How to work it now: Flatter your
    figure in form-fitting bustiers,
    finished off with unapologetic
    amounts of jewelry.

    SOPHIA’S STYLE
