Sophia Loren really had/has an outstanding figure, don't you agree? And although Houseboat is a romantic/family film, Edith Head pulled all the stops and created incredibly figure flattering dresses for Loren to wear. One of these amazing dresses is this black number just below. I added a video of the scene that she was in when she wore this stunning dress just so you could get a better glimpse of it-enjoy!
Can we all say "Bellissima!!"
Below are some photos of her ensemble as well. It included a black wiggle dress, black wide brimmed hat, black high heel shoes, plain black purse, and a simple one strand pearl choker with matching earrings. Luggage is optional! LOL
I found some incredible 1950's black dresses and hats on Etsy. Now although I couldn't find exact matches, I was able to find some that gave a simple feel to what Cinzia wore. Let's not forget a pair of black heels, purse, a pearl choker and earring set would be ideal to complete this "Houseboat" inspired ensemble.
Aren't each of these pieces just beautiful! Black is such an elegant color. Perhaps one day you will feel inspired to dress like Sophia Loren did when she played Cinzia on "Houseboat". I mean one cannot go wrong with a little black dress...wink!
