For Verushka! – rushed from all sides, and the glasses moved again and again.

Once seen, Verushka was impossible to forget: very thin, long, like a liana, with infinitely thin arms and legs, flexible … Unusual face framed by straight, light hair. Large, well-defined lips, thin nose and eyes – blue, motionless, and unable to laugh. The culprit of the celebration was Vera Lendorf, in a simple black dress and felt hat, as flexible, slim and elegant as in the photos, although she was almost 70. She sat at the end of a long table and, as usual, smoked one cigarette after another. It’s amazing, but her face has not changed much since those legendary times, in certain angles she could be given no more than 40!

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.
