Informative Caption tells us that “Italian film star Sophia Loren poses for photographers before attending the New York premiere of the movie, Dr. Zhivago, December 22nd. Miss Loren is in New York with her husband, Carlo Ponti, producer of the movie.” And I’m telling you that the end of 2020 really needs the energy of being perched on a fancy chair in a hotel room — emotionally, obviously, not literally — sporting massive jewels (that, ideally, could happen literally), wearing a perfectly fit gown,  waving around a cigarette (except you shouldn’t smoke, so I guess that’s also an emotional cigarette) and holding your free hand as if you expect someone to plonk a drink into it immediately. We’ve got just over a week to make this happen, so let’s get to work.
