>Instead of deciding if you’re a Carrie, Samantha, and all that stupid bullshit, why don’t you see if you’re a Sophia Loren or a Catherine Deneuve, an Anna Karena or a Jean Seberg, a Julie Christie or a Jane Fonda, an Aretha Franklin or a Diana Ross. The New York Times compares the iconic qualities of Ms. Deneuve and Ms. Loren:

“Lorenland is a proletarian world of workers and peasants, defined by spontaneity and sensuality, a world of broad comedy and even broader melodrama. The petit principality of Deneuve is the Monaco of movies: a primarily urban environment of designer boutiques and chic restaurants, in which emotions are muffled and sex discreet (and frequently unhappy).

Where Ms. Loren is a pagan goddess, all bosom and hips, with almond eyes and pillowy lips, Ms. Deneuve is a perfectly proportioned Renaissance angel, thin-lipped, wide-eyed and enveloped in a nimbus of golden hair. Ms. Loren has the imposing physical presence of a monumental statue; Ms. Deneuve the exquisite, pocket-size beauty of a cameo brooch. Ms. Loren invites us to live more intensely in our world; Ms. Deneuve exists in another space entirely, one surrounded by velvet ropes, and she’s not sure she wants to share it at all.”
