Double Breasted

Sophia Loren and Sofia VergaraSupper 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 and veering disapprovingly at her excessive décolletage on display for the world to see. Of all the 50s bombshells, Jayne Mansfield was undoubtedly the most unabashed of them all, posing for Playboy dozens of times and leaving little to the imagination elsewhere. The famous scene has been recreated several times and most recently appeared in Modern Family’s I-Spy” episode in February of 2014. In this version, Sofia Vergara assumes the role of Mansfield while Julie Bowen casts a judgmental glance at her companion’s scant neckline.
