Packing for Paris: ‘La Lollo’ wasn’t one to travel light

When two goddesses come face to face, there can be problems. Not in this instance, however, since the goddesses in question were film star Gina Lollobrigida and the Citroën ‘Déesse’ and who – judging by this photograph – understood each other well.

The photo shows Gina Lollobrigida with a major suitcase problem; or should that be thirteen problems? The picture was taken at a photoshoot for Paris Match magazine, to accompany a story on the revolutionary Citroën DS – and to help demonstrate the wonderful luxury of luggage space. Believe it or not, all the suitcases in the picture would have fitted into the Citroën. Or so we’re told.
