Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow: My Lifeby Sophia Loren ($20, from Atria Books)

From an Academy Award win to a high-profile courtship with Cary Grant, Sophia Loren's life sounds every bit the Hollywood movie. In her first memoir, the Italian actress reflects on her golden years living the high life, as well as the hardship she experienced before success as a girl growing up with a single mother in Naples, Italy. Her language is elegant and arresting, much like the beauty she is famous for. Amidst written memories are also mementos such as never-before-seen personal letters, sketches and photographs. It's difficult not to gawk at Loren's inimitable glamour—she's a style icon after all. While explaining the inextricable bond between cinema and fashion, she waxes poetic about designer and friend Giorgio Armani. She writes, "What keeps Giorgio the dream of offering men and women the discovery of their own beauty." Discover your inner Sophia Loren with a piece of Armani yourself, in a brilliant red shade as timeless as the screen legend herself.
