Italian beauty icon Gina Lollobrigida
Born 4 July 1927, Gina Lollobrigida has celebrated her 90th birthday! At one time, for participation in the film, she received the highest fees in the film, and more than four hundred magazines a year reproduced her portrait on the covers. Among them, the American “Time”, which of the European celebrities gave this honor only to Pope Pius XII. She starred in more than 100 films, and tried herself as a screenwriter and director, journalist, photographer, sculptor and many other things.
Meanwhile, Lollobrigida entitled her biography: “My wonderful adventure.” It is really wonderful, her biography. And not only hers. Many movie stars of the world underwent such a sudden transformation of Cinderella into a princess. Not a talent, not a calling, but a chance, a happy coincidence of circumstances decided their fate.
Lollobrigida’s luck was accompanied by talent. A lucky fate fell to Lollobrigida. But it is unlikely that the actress has forgotten the years of misery and grief that preceded it.
During the war, Gina learned how to weave straw sandals and remade soldier’s shirts in blouses. In 1945, the family moved to Rome, on one of the crooked streets of the outskirts, crossed with clotheslines, which we are so familiar with the films of Rossellini and DeSantis.

Beautiful Argentine actress Lolita Torres
More than one generation of Soviet spectators sang songs from the movie “The Age of Love”.
Lolita Torres in those days was, was literally the national heroine of the Soviet Union. Such films as “Love at first sight”, “The Bridegroom for Laura” and “The Age of Love” people watched and reviewed several times. She herself was amazed at her popularity, but the journalists explained to her such a success. In particular, the country, which suffered so much hardship and suffering, in the post-war period, really needed holiday spectacles. A cheerful, beautiful, with an amazing figure and dimples on her cheeks, Lolita Torres, like no other, pleased Soviet spectators. People of the older generation remember the above three films by heart.
Released in 1954 on Soviet screens Argentine film “The Age of Love” gathered 31 million viewers, and songs from it sounded throughout the country. The main role in it played a young singer Lolita Torres, the most famous Latin American star of the sixties.

Beautiful film actresses we lost in 2017
First of all, this post is a tribute to the most beautiful actresses who passed away in 2017. Although most of these actresses died in old age, I prefer to show their beauty in their youth. Because it was during this period of their active and young life that the audience saw them, admired them, loved and followed them.
Undoubtedly, Yvonne Monlaurne belongs to the most beautiful actresses of the 20th century, standing on a par with such beauty icons as Merilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Sophia Loren.
Born 15 December 1939 in France, she was the daughter of a Russian noble man, white officer and count. And her mother, a ballet dancer, instilled in her daughter love not only for ballet, but for art in general. The girl studied classical dance, and worked as a model.
She made her debut in the films: “Thirteen at the table / Treize à table” (directed by Andre Junnebel) and “Honore de Marcel” (both – 1956). Having played in more than 33 films, yet, she is mostly remembered as an actress of horror and spy films in the 50s – 60s (for example, Circus of Horrors, 1960). And her most notable role – 1960 film
“The Brides of Dracula”.
Descendant of Muhammad Beautiful Princess Iman bint Abdullah
It is likely that a little more time will pass, and Princess Iman Bint Abdullah, the eldest daughter of King Abdullah II and Queen Rania, will be the most talked about person on our planet. Meanwhile, about the princess of Jordan, Iman is not much spoken in the press. Unlike her famous mother, Queen Rania, the girl does not have social networks, does not give interviews and rarely appears in public. However, each of her appearance, approximately once every two years or three, becomes a sensation. And there are several reasons for this …
Princess Iman is 21 years old, and she is the second child and the oldest daughter in the family of King Abdullah II and Queen Rania. She has a 23-year-old brother Hussein, 17-year-old sister Salma and 12-year-old brother Hashim. Noteworthy, the origin of Princess Iman, like all her relatives is very impressive: they are descendants of the Prophet Muhammad.
Last love of Vladimir Mayakovsky Tatiana Yakovleva
One of the most touching stories of Mayakovsky’s life happened to him in Paris when he fell in love with Tatiana Yakovleva. Between them there could be nothing in common. A Russian emigre, chiseled and refined, brought up on Pushkin and Tyutchev, did not take a word from the chopped, hard, ragged poems of a fashionable Soviet poet, an “icebreaker” from the Land of Soviets.
She did not take any of his words at all, even in real life. Fierce, frantic, going ahead, living on his last breath, he frightened her with his unrestrained passion. She was not touched neither by his dog devotion, nor his fame. Her heart remained indifferent. And Mayakovsky left for Moscow alone.
From this instantly flared and not held love, with him remained a secret grief, and with us – a magical poem “Letter to Tatyana Yakovleva” with the words: “I’ll take you one or two with Paris!”
Dramatic fate of Hollywood actress Ingrid Bergman
The fate of beautiful Swedish American actress Ingrid Bergman, boycotted in America and Europe, was really dramatic. And this August 29 (2017) marks 102 years from the date of birth and 35 years since the death of the Hollywood star of the period of its “golden age” Ingrid Bergman. So, why boycotted? In fact, at the peak of her popularity, being the highest paid Hollywood actress, happy mother and beloved wife, she left everything. Particularly, for the sake of the man who caused the boycott of films with Ingrid Bergman in America and Europe. Besides, in her homeland, in Sweden, she was even called a “spot on the flag of the country”. However, she did not regret anything.
Born on August 29, 1915 in Stockholm, Ingrid Bergman got her name after the Swedish princess. Unfortunately, she lost her parents early: her mother died when the girl was 3 years old, and her father passed away as a result of the disease when she was 12. The orphaned girl began to live with her aunt, but she also died prematurely. So, in adolescence, the girl remained completely alone.
