CANNES WATCH: Age-defying Loren shows off curves

CANNES, France (AP) — Svelte 79-year-old siren Sophia Loren has outshone women half her age at the Cannes film festival in head-to-toe red.

She playfully flirted with photographers Wednesday for the screening of "Human Voice," directed by her son, Edoardo Ponti. The age-defying Loren, who's being honored as a special guest at this year's festival, also wowed crowds with enviable curves at the premiere of "Two Days, One Night." She wore an embellished champagne couture dress by Armani Prive.

Loren's iconic 1964 film "Marriage Italian Style" is being shown at the festival.
