Anita Ekberg, 'La Dolce Vita' Actress, Looks Pretty As A Picture (PHOTO)

Best known for her role alongside Marcello Mastroianni in Federico Fellini's 1960 film, "La Dolce Vita," Swedish-born actress Anita Ekberg had style chops. Ekberg modelled in her teen years (even winning the Miss Sweden contest) and went on to a successful career acting in Hollywood, becoming a style icon in the '60s.

But it's her look from 1955, pictured below, that we are fascinated with today. The stunning blonde added a little edge to light pink cropped pants and matching head scarf with a leather-and-knit top. The convertible helps, too -- who wouldn't want to pair their look with that amazing car?
