Three years ago Sophia Loren who was by then almost 72 years old posed stark, well almost stark, on a angel feather white bed for the 2007 edition of the Pirelli calendar.
Other girls in that edition of the Pirelli calendar for different months? Spanish actress Penelope Cruz was one, and plenty of other much younger assorted celebrities.
Pirelli thinks old is gold but sultry siren of the yesteryears still managed to carry herself with aplomb. When asked how she felt afterwards, Ms Loren said she was thrilled by the experience. We are sure.
