From the days she aspired to
become Reginetta del Mare in 1949, under
the name Scicolone, until today as Loren,
a timeless icon of beauty, Sophia
appeared on more than 3000 magazine covers,
which are listed
alphabetically in this section, with images in a chronological sequence
for each year. This section is updated on a regular basis.
first magazine cover featuring
Sophia dates from September 10, 1950 as she was randomly picked among
at the Miss Italia contest to
appear on the Italian weekly Illustrato magazine.
The Palme d'or of all magazines
goes without a doubt to German magazine Bunte
with 65 Sophia covers starting in 1956.
No wonder Sophia won the
award in Germany as Most Popular Foreign
Actress 8 times out of 10 in the sixties.
Some entries featured may be magazine back covers, in which case they
are always full-page pictures.
