The actress was probably the sex symbol of the 1970’s, certainly in America. As well as her appearance in Playboy she also starred in the original movie version of Bedazzled and sparked many a teenage boy’s fantasy with her appearance in the famous fur bikini in One Million Years B.C.
Raquel was dressed up in a fitted leopard print dress that showed everyone she is still in fantastic shape.
It was announced a few weeks ago that she will be making a return to movie acting with an appearance in the new film House of Versace where she will play the fashion designer’s Aunt Lucia. The movie will also star Gina Gershon.
Raquel and a number of other stars were in Beverly Hills for the Variety and Women In Film Pre-Emmy party. The event was held at top Italian restaurant Scarpetta which is the award-winning restaurant of tv chef Scott Conant.
Apart from Raquel other stars making an appearance at the event included Glee stars Jane Lynch and Jenna Ushkowitz, Gossip Girl’s Jessica Szohr, Lisa Rinna from Days Of Our Lives, Sarah Hyland and her on-screen mother Julie Bowen from Modern Family and Jessica Pare and Elisabeth Moss from Mad Men.
The Emmys will be broadcast live on CBS tomorrow (22 September) from 8pm Eastern (5pm Pacific). The live show will feature a performance from Sir Elton John and much like the Oscars has as many famous faces presenting the awards as receiving them. Tomorrow night’s presenters include Jim Parsons from The Big Bang Theory, Julianna Margulies from The Good Wife, Jon Hamm from Mad Men, as well as Heidi Klum, Mark Harmon, Jimmy Fallon, Bob Newhart and Dylan McDermott.
