The 5: Sex Symbols Who Captivated a Decade

 Here are our picks:

***

Bridget Bardot dominated the 60s. She was a model, a dancer, an actress, a muse and perhaps most important of all, she was French, which at that time, meant exciting and new.  Smouldering, smart, and incredibly sexy, she captivated everyone with a pulse.

 

   

***

Farrah Fawcett owned the 70s.   Boys who didn’t have her poster somewhere in their rooms, basements, or hidden under their beds were few and far between.  She was part girl next door, and part bikini goddess.  Every woman wanted her haircut.  Every man wanted everything else.

 Bo Derek was the woman of the 80s.  After the movie 10 came out, she was every man’s fantasy, and that image was furthered by a series of Playboy shoots.  She was confident, strong, and just a bit mysterious.  Her wet look cornrows– the exact opposite of the Farrah hairstyle– was an entirely new look– both exciting and exotic.

    

***

Cindy Crawford was the ‘it girl’  of the 90s.  It was the decade of the supermodel, and she was the undisputable top of that pyramid.   She was on the cover of hundreds and hundreds of magazines, and known for her trademark mole.  Michael Kohrs was quoted as saying that Cindy changed the perception of the ‘sexy American girl’ from classic blue eyed blonde to a more sultry brunette with brains, charm, and professionalism to spare.

    

***

Britney Spears stole the show in the 00’s.  She was 19 years old when the decade began and first grabbed attention for her squeaky clean but oh-so-flirty schoolgirl look.  A few years later she shocked and excited men across the country was wearing a lot less than we were used to seeing on popstars, especially one so young.  Do we even have to mention the way she danced?  We watched her grow up…and out…right before our eyes.
