Happy birthday, Raquel Welch

Today we celebrate 72 years of the woman sent to Earth to show female belly dancers how to dress.
More evidence after the jump.

Renn Faire/Comic Con casual
(as "The Priestess of the Whip" in  The Magic Christian [1969])
Original flavour tribal-style
(One Million Years BC [1966])

Offstage leisure wear - Raquel at 68
Oh, you think she's not a dancer? She's a dancer, as this excerpt from one of her 1970s TV specials proves:

Also, I will always love her for this. The bit where Miss Piggy touches her boob and Raquel pulls the "Whaa ...?" face? Gold, I tell you!

A whole lot more of Raquel lovin' -- photos and glorious video clips -- from Voices of East Anglia.
