Deal with the devil? Best plastic surgeon ever? Top-secret directions to the Fountain of Youth?
Look, we don’t know how Sophia Loren looks so freaking amazing at 78 years of age (!!!), but she does, and there’s nothing the rest of us can do about it except cry sad, jealous tears.
The iconic Italian actress showed off her age-defying looks at the launch of the 2013 Pirelli Calendar in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in a beaded champagne gown that highlighted her hourglass-after-all-these-years figure.
The sparkly dress had a low-cut neckline and a knee-high slit down the center, although we couldn’t get a good look at Miz Loren’s fabbity-fab legs.
Of course, we're sure they still look as great as ever!
Dangly drop earrings and a diamond choker completed the look.
