In Raquel’s interview with Oprah, she talks about once being ‘every man’s fantasy’. After all, several million copies were sold of that famous picture of Raquel wearing the doe-skin bikini (from the 1960s movie One Million Years B.C). She lamented, however, that she felt highly objectified back then – as though she were to be “seen and not heard”. Raquel said that she had to throw away her serious, artistic side. Oprah also inquires about the time Raquel spent with many of Hollywood’s biggest stars of the day – Dean Martin, Burt Reynolds and Elvis, to name a few.
We were even invited to reminisce over a brief clip from 1984 when Raquel first appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show! Oprah read many excerpts from Raquel’s new book appropriately titled Raquel: Beyond the Cleavage. One of the main topics in Raquel’s book is aging. She says that a woman must decide when she is older whether she is going to "get in the game or check out", whether to "play it or bow out". Raquel also advises, “Just as you maintain your home, your car, your garden…you should maintain your greatest asset – your body.”
We were very pleased to see Raquel wearing Spotlight beautifully (in the color RL30/27, shown at left). Spotlight is one of Raquel and parent company Hair U Wear’s top-selling wigs. It’s a favorite among Wigs.com customers too. Raquel also wears a style called Always in the cover photo of her book. To view Spotlight by Raquel Welch, click here.
