That look Sofia gave to Jayne at Romanoff’s

Supper club to the stars of Hollywood’s Golden Age, Romanoff’s Restaurant was the setting of an unforgettable image featuring Italian bombshell Sophia Loren sizing up her American counterpart Jayne Mansfield with a look of disapproval and (perhaps) with a hint of envy for the generous cleavage displayed by Mansfield with confidence and nonchalance. The iconic image has been recreated several times to humorously stress out women’s coquettish and judgmental nature.
