We've always known Raquel Welch was one of the biggest sex symbols of her time, but the amount of material we come across on her is still shocking. Only Marilyn Monroe pops up more during our digging. Rather than the blonde bombshell of the late ’50s as typified by Monroe, Mansfield, Van Doren and others, Welch came in the mid-’60s and was exotic, dark, and smolderingly sexual. The combination made for a global appeal, as the magazine covers above attest. And below, as a bonus, we thought we'd show you a few interior images from the French publication Dolce Vita. Look for more Welch later this summer.
