Minx: Raquel Welch

The Most Desired Minx.

Fact: nothing can make you weak in the knees quite like a minx in a bikini (please refer to Joanna, Lucy, Amber, and Miranda if you’re willing to argue that theory). But we’ve managed to find one thing trumps a minx in a bikini, and that’s a minx in a fur bikini. The icon we’re referring to is none other than the multitalented Raquel Welch, of course. First noted in her breakout role in “Fantastic Voyage,” Raquel wasn’t truly catapulted to stardom until her role in “One Million Years B.C.” where she was seen sporting her now-infamous doe skin bikini.

Okay, so Raquel only had three lines in the entire film, but her curves in “mankind’s first bikini” crowned her the leading star in pretty much everybody’s book. And one magazine. Those curves in that bikini that landed her recognition by “Playboy” and ultimately, the title of “Most Desired Woman Of The 1970’s.” Not a small feat when you think about the fact that Farrah Fawcett and Daisy Duke were running around back then. But Raquel is more than just a sex symbol. She’s won a Golden Globe for her role in “The Three Musketeers,” received honors as a Broadway star and nightclub performer, and is even a published author—if you count “The Raquel Welch Total Beauty Fitness Program” book. At 73, Raquel still carries those same curves she had decades ago when she first started her career. Wonder if that bikini is still around too…
