Claudia Cardinale

Here is one of the most beautiful film starlets from 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Claudia Cardinale still looks fantastic – at the age of 74.  She won the ‘Most Beautiful Italian Girl in Tunisia’ competition in 1957 (I did not know that such a competition existed). This award brought her to the Venice Film Festival and was the start of a brilliant career.

 She has played in about 100 films and several television series, and was one of the great female icons in 50’s and 60’s. In recent years she has he been Goodwill Ambassador for UNESCO (since 1999) for women’s rights. She has also engaged in other political and environmental issues.

 Claudia Cardinale has never won an Oscar, but has several other awards including the honorary Golden Bear award at the 2002 Berlin Film Festival.
