Sophia Loren Jayne Mansfield

If there’s something more dangerous than anything else in this world, it’s the attempt by one sex symbol to outdo another. The result can be a fight of epic proportions. And though such a fight never existed between Sophia Loren and Jayne Mansfield, they probably came pretty close in 1957.

While posing for a picture with Loren and Mansfield leaned over, her bosom nearly spilled out of her dress. A tiny bit of one nipple can be seen in the picture.
