Dear Gossips,

On the weekend when I was prepping Monday’s column, I came across a couple shots of Sophia Loren arriving in Taiwan on Sunday. Wasn’t sure how I would be able to use them. Entertainment Weekly just gave me a reason. (Thanks Victoria!)

In May when I posted photos of Sophia at Cannes (click here for a refresher), I wrote that “I never mention Sophia on this blog without referencing her infamous cut-eye on Jayne Mansfield”. It is the probably the most famous, most spectacular cut-eye of all time. And, in a new interview to celebrate her upcoming AFI achievement and the release of her memoir, Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow: My Life, EW actually asks her about it!

Even Sophia thinks what went down was “amazing” – that’s her word, not mine.  Read Full Intro

Sophia Loren. At the Palais today for a photo call. And she must have liked the light because she took off her sunglasses. Today she wore red. The other night on the carpet it was sparkly and silvery gold. Kinda like a finger snap. Step off, young ladies. This is mine. It’s always been mine. Full Story

That was the nickname I gave Elisabetta Canalis. Who? She was the one before Stacy Keibler, you remember? What would Canalis say today now that she and Keibler are in the same category? Keibler came out with more though, non? Anyway, Italian Queen-ing Canalis was meant for jokes. Where Sophia Loren is concerned however, I mean it pure, for serious. Full Story

Marion Cotillard in Rome today at the premiere of Nine in an Angelina Jolie-esque matron back ensemble that at first glance is kinda frumpy and then she turned to the side and, well, not to get all perv but it’s hard for the eye not to follow her hamstring right up to what looks like an impossibly perfect curve of the asscheek, oh la. Full Story

They’re all in New York. Yes, even Miss Sophia in head to toe red. And Dame Judi Dench looking sharp in stripes. All of them in New York for the Nine junket, all of them gamely doing press in support of the film including one-on-one interviews for a long list of television outlets, print round tables, breakfast events…and more. Full Story

From the grand dame herself. This is Sophia Loren today giving us great bitchface arriving in Venice where there’s a street being named after her tomorrow. Needless to say, she doesn’t like the lighting. Sophia is very, very particular about her lighting. It must be soft, but not too soft. Full Story

Granny Freeze Nicole Kidman was freshly frozen for the Oscars and presented alongside The Women to Kate Winslet. I do love how they held hands and welcomed her to the community. And though I rag on her often, Gran is one of the few who can almost always pull off feathers. Her dress was magnificent. Especially from the back. Full Story

Oscar ratings look to be up between 6 – 10% this year over last, considered a modest success. Twihards are probably taking credit for this. Anyway, I have a flight out of LA this afternoon. And I have to check out soon. Full Story

Remember Angelina Jolie’s bitchface at the Critics’ Choice Awards when Anne Hathaway started dithering on stage? Angie is a novice compared to the legendary Sophia Loren. Here in Rome today with Daniel Day-Lewis on the set of Nine – the longest shoot ever!?!? – treating us to a clinic on how to give face. Full Story
