Raquel Welch

Jo Raquel Tejada, also known as Raquel Welch, is an American singer and actress who became known for her appearance in the 1966 movie Fantastic Voyage. Her film stills from One Million Years B.C. in a doe-skin bikini became a hit poster, turning Welch into a global sex symbol. Welch appeared on the December 1979 issue of Playboy magazine but never shot in full nudity. Hugh Hefner, the Playboy magazine founder, later said "Raquel Welch, one of the last of the classic sex symbols, came from the era when you could be considered the sexiest woman in the world without taking your clothes off. She declined to do complete nudity, and I yielded gracefully. The pictures prove her point."
