Gina Lollobrigida: Photos of the 50s and 60s beauty icon

Starting her career in the post-war period, Gina Lollobrigida first captured the public’s eye in Italy before garnering international stardom. Her breakthrough came with the film “Fanfan la Tulipe” (1952), a swashbuckling adventure, which was a great success at the global box office.

Throughout the 1950s and 60s, Lollobrigida starred in a series of successful films such as “Beat the Devil” (1953), a film noir adventure directed by John Huston and starring Humphrey Bogart, and “Come September” (1961), which paired her with Rock Hudson and won her a Golden Globe. Her performance in “The World’s Most Beautiful Woman” (1955) earned her critical acclaim and cemented her status as an international sex symbol.

Lollobrigida’s impact was not confined to the silver screen; she was also a talented photographer and sculptor. This multidimensional aspect of her career highlighted her as a true Renaissance woman, skilled both in front of and behind the lens.
