Groovy Colorized Photos That Finally Capture It All

Icons | June 1, 2020

The most divisive photo ever captured... or is it? Look closer 👀

source: Reddit

Everyone knows this iconic image from the Sophia Loren’s side eye at Jayne Mansfield’s cleavage. While the myth behind the photo says that the Italian stunner was upset about Jayne Mansfield upstaging her with a low cut dress, the truth is much less catty.

In 1957 Paramount threw a coming out party for Loren smack dab in the middle of Beverly Hills and Mansfield showed up because… well… she was invited.

Loren says that Mansfield walked right over to her table and struck a pose for the photographers. Loren says that she knew exactly what was happening and that she respected Mansfield for doing what she had to do to get some press.

As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
