Raquel


When I was a kid, Raquel Welch was the absolute epitome of feminine beauty and sexuality. Her Amazonian figure, glorious hair, piercing eyes and breathy voice just oozed sex...even though we kids had no earthly idea in those more innocent years what that even meant! A competent actress, a so-so singer/dancer and a fair comedienne, she steadfastly refused to appear nude or even partially nude--even in the PLAYBOY shoot she eventually consented to in the eighties! But that's just it...she never needed to be nude to work her magic. To this day she remains physically a stunning example of real-life pin-up art. Here's a portfolio of shots from the sixties and early seventies (and a couple from even more recently). Enjoy! We certainly did at the time!
