Sophia Loren has never been one to blend into the background. But when an event is all about her, the 80-year-old really make sure to shine the brightest – even when her younger namesake Sofia Vergara is busy trying to steal the limelight.
The veteran actress was impossible to miss as she stepped out on the AFI Festival’s red carpet at the special tribute to Sophia Lauren event on Wednesday in Hollywood.
While she may be an Octogenarian, that is not slowing down the Houseboat actress – or encouraging her to tone down her wardrobe.
The Italian superstar put her famous curves on display in a very low cut black gown. If her cleavage was not enough, Sophia made sure there was not a single person’s attention not on her thanks to the dress’ crystal embellishments, which she matched to a diamond encrusted choker.
Paying tribute to old Hollywood glamour, the star wore her red brown locks in a voluminous style with her hair curled away from her face.
Loving being surrounded in her fans, the veteran actress threw her hands up in the air and blew kisses to onlookers. Joining her on the red carpet was her son director Edoardo Ponti, who held on to his mother’s hand and walked her down the carpet after she has fished waving to fans
Inside the veteran actress was introduced to attendees by what many would think is the modern day version of the actress – Sofia Vergara.
The pair do not just share a name – albeit spelt differently – they are also known as sex kittens and famed for their curves.
The Modern Family star made sure to put hers on display, wearing a tight strapless floral cocktail dress. The 42-year-old brought along boyfriend Joe Manganiello, whom she could not keep her hands off all night
The South American star posted a picture of her and her beau as they headed to the event on her Twitter. Sofia gushed: ‘Very special night! With my love at the AFI festival honouring the one and only Sophia Loren.’ After her duties were done, Sofia could not help but snuggle up to her partner who looked very dapper in a suit.
As part of the evening’s celebration Sophia was presented with her very own official day. Los Angeles Council member Tom LaBonge announced from this day forward November 12 will be known as Sophia Loren Day. The honour was graciously received by the star, who could not stop smiling.
Also Helping Sophia mark her special night, was actress Michelle Monaghan. The 38-year-old star shined in a black dress with brown snakeskin pattern that featured a detached top section and pockets. Making the look pop further, the True Detective star wore bright red lipstick to give the look some colour.
