Beautiful Stars Of The 70s Then And Now

source: reddit

The '70s was a magical decade for beauty and glamor, and the female stars who emerged have an allure we'll never recapture. We saw women taking charge as never before, and it was, frankly, quite sexy. Linda Ronstadt and Stevie Nicks showed us that a woman can rule the biggest stages in rock music, while dynamic cover girls like Beverly Johnson, Cheryl Tiegs and Cybill Shepherd proved there was more to modeling than holding still and looking pretty. We also thrilled to the sight of the first female action heroes -- Pam Grier on the big screen and Lynda Carter on the tube.

There are many paths that lead to adulation and stardom, but in the '70s there was none more effective than the hot poster. A young starlet with a hot poster could count on getting some serious buzz and better paying jobs. It worked for Lynda Carter, Farrah Fawcett, Cheryl Tiegs, Catherine Bach, Heather Thomas, Heather Locklear -- and it worked like crazy for Loni Anderson.
