Angie Dickinson was one of the most prolific actresses during the 1950s and ‘60s, and she has also been recognized as number 42 on Playboy’s list of the “100 Sexiest Stars of the Century” in 1999. She fared better with TV Guide, which ranked her number three behind George Clooney and Diana Rigg on their 2002 list of “50 Sexiest Television Stars of All Time.” And she appeared in Esquire in 1966, wearing nothing but a sweater and a pair of white pumps. The image was accidental as she hadn’t brought clothes to the photoshoot as she had expected that there would be clothes at the photoshoot. That image appeared on the cover 27 years later and was recreated by Britney Spears and Victoria’s Secret models.
