The women who made the seventies beautiful

The beauty icons of the 70s | Never Underdressed

Bit of a motley bunch, if you ask me.

Only Bo Derek stands out as a solitary, unquestionable qualifier. A more typical Debbie Harry pic would include her. The rest are not quite as I remember them. Maybe I'm just getting old.

Any better suggestions?

Yukky O-no? Passable with a large potato sack covering her from head to toe.
Not many there that I remember, not being a tv watching 'merican.
Bit like the 60s I suppose; if you can remember it you weren't there.

Tina Turner
Cher - post Sonny

You need to go back a generation at least for classically attractive ladies in my opinion.

Actresses Sex Symbols of the 40s, 50s list

I'm pretty sure the FSL will approve of these ladies.

Yer,without doubt the most beautiful woman in the second half of the last century was Sofia Loren,saying that that photo of her on that site is not very good.
Of course other will probably disagree with me choice

I don't know on what planet Yoko Ono and Patti Smith would be considered beautiful, but from a purely female perspective, there are only a couple in there who should be on the list. Take their make up off and you probably wouldn't give them a second look on the street. I expect the tit & bum brigade will be along shortly with their picks

Julie Christie would be on any list from the 60s, 70s and 80s.

Joanna Lumley used to drop into a little pub on the north side of Hampstead/ border with Islington in the '70s and she was stunning. Gets my vote.

Cheers

Sophia Loren is one of the few of those '70's beauties who has kept her good looks in her old age.
Some of them look pretty awful nowadays - but I guess a few of us have deteriorated a bit, too.

Candice Bergen, Jerry Hall, Debbie Harry, all look pretty ravaged today.
Joan Collins is a walking tribute to plastic surgery - but she is 81, after all.
Some of those women I didn't ever think were particularly "beautiful", anyway.
Went to a Suzi Quatro concert a couple of years ago - she can still belt out a few good rock songs - but I always considered her looks to be somewhat masculine.

Bo Derek's tits were too big to be real in the movie "10". Certainly far too over-sized for my own tastes. Bo Derek was probably the detonator which "set-off" the urges of millions of women worldwide to enlarge their breasts using "artificial implants". Aided and abetted willingly by their inadequate spouses etc.

Agreed Airship,


There are few things as unattractive as a pair of fake plastic hooters.


Anyway, back to the subject at hand. The blonde in Abba could cause a bit of rheumatism in the trouser department when I was a teenager. Kate Bush was top drawer totty too.

The laydees on the Tennant's Lager cans were nice as I recall, but then I was only a kid in the 70s. Always thought that's why my dad drank it.


Mr Draper - If I remember correctly it was Jenny Hanley.
