It’s difficult to believe that the iconic American actress Raquel Welch is 73-years-old. It is especially amazing if you saw the way she looked at Friday night’s Variety & Woman In Film Party in Beverly Hills.
So, naturally, the question arises: Is this all the work of nature, or is there some man made input? Can anyone look like that at that age without assistance?
For sure she stood out in the crowd, sporting a sexy and fitting leopard-print dress. At 73, she outshone starlets half her age at the Pre-Emmy bash in Beverly Hills on Friday.
This former Playboy cover girl – born Jo Raquel Tejada– looked as though she hadn’t aged at all since her 1960’s hey-day. If only we could all say the same about ourselves!
Outside of her acting activities, she’s the proprietor of HairU Wear’s Raquel Welch wig collection. She made herself a household name in films like One Million Years B.C., Myra Breckinridge, and Bedazzled.
Raquel, who is the image of Foster Grant eyewear, is due to appear next alongside Gina Gershon in Lifetime’s original movie, House of Versace. Welch will play Donatella Versace’s Aunt Lucia in the fashion biopic. The movie is due to be released on October 5 and is based on Deborah Ball’s 2010 book.
Raquel has been divorced four times and is mother to 53-year-old son Damon and 51-year-old daughter Tahnee from her first husband James Welch.
Also at the Variety party from Mad Men were Elisabeth Moss in a coral body-con dress, Kiernan Shipka in a full-skirted frock, and Jessica Pare in a strapless black gown.
But it was Raquel Welch who stole the show, with the question on everyone’s lips: How does she look like that?
