Eventcepts director Connie Paglianiti said Ms Loren, who shot to international fame after winning an Academy Award for Best Actress in 1962, was the perfect guest of honour for the event.

Ms Paglianiti, who invited Ms Loren to Melbourne for the gala, said Ms Loren was not only one of the most beautiful women in the world, but an adoring mother and grandmother with a lifelong love of children.

“We are so honoured to have her here as our special guest,” she said.
