Top 10 Sexiest Women of the 1970s


Disco fever was rife, and these were the girls who looked especially good beneath the glitter ball! Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for the top 10 sexiest women per decade: 1970s!

For this list, we've looked at only the sexiest women of the '70s. There are no criteria specifics regarding their profession, we've included all famous females for this one! This is part of a series of videos on the Top 10 Sexiest Women spanning the decades from the '70s to the 2000s. Enjoy!

#10: Cheryl Tiegs

Often thought of as one of America's first supermodels, Cheryl Tiegs was tantalisation incarnate! There aren't too many magazine covers this girl hasn't graced! Glamour, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Sports Illustrated, she's been the face of them all! A scorcher in swimwear, Tiegs turned more than a few heads in 1978 when she modelled a fishnet number through which her nipples were actually visible! She dared to bare more than most, and her sexy credentials are clear cut!

#9: Jaclyn Smith

The only one of the “Charlie's Angels” to remain with the series from start to finish, Jaclyn Smith fought crime in the foxiest way possible! A brunette beauty who it's almost worth getting brought to justice by, she just beats Cheryl Ladd to the title of 'Charlie's Finest'! Smith also gained attention for her title role in the TV movie, "Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy"... She's not quite our 'First Lady', but she's mighty, mighty fine all the same!

#8: Suzanne Somers

Finding fame with her role in "Three's Company", the sexiness of Suzanne Somers was a very sure thing by the end of the '70s! Her long blonde hair and her long, long legs had many an admirer longing for five minutes with her! A public fallout with the producers of "Three's Company" saw her role in the show decline at the turn of the decade, but by then Somers was a certified sex bomb! Playboy shoots swiftly followed, before "Step By Step" in the '90s.

#7: Lynda Carter

She was Miss World USA one year, and she played Wonder Woman for four years... Lynda Carter was one helluva lady, with one helluva sexy CV! A superheroine on screen, no amount of superlatives could do her justice! Long brown hair, a body toned to perfection, figure-hugging hot pants... Whenever anything went wrong in our lives, we prayed that Wonder Woman would come to save the day! Stereotypically, the damsel is in distress... But for Carter, the cutie was in control!

#6: Olivia Newton-John

There's something about the good girl gone bad that's just so brilliantly sexy! And when Sandra D swapped her long skirts for leather pants, pulses soared! Olivia Newtown-John played the Rydell High hottie, but she kept her inner sizzle under-wraps until the fairground finale! With 'Tell me about it, stud', she secured her spot on 'sexiest women countdowns' for all of time! As the audience’s chills multiplied and they lost control, she was the one that he wanted, the one that you wanted, the one everyone wanted!

#5: Faye Dunaway

Another big screen beauty next, as we welcome onto our countdown some Academy Award-winning attractiveness! Faye Dunaway scooped the golden statuette for her role in "Network" and was Oscar nominated twice more for parts in "Bonnie and Clyde" and "Chinatown"! She was more than just a pretty face, but it has to be said that she was an exceptionally pretty face! Dunaway was by far and away one of the loveliest ladies to look at of her time!

#4: Jane Seymour

Some English elegance now, and an actress who one just has to stand back and admire! James Bond fans know Jane Seymour as Solitaire, everyone knows her as seriously good looking! A role as Princess Farah in "Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger" certainly caught the eye of everyone else, and when she played Serina in the "Battlestar Galactica" pilot, which was released theatrically in some countries before making it to American TV, her wonderful womanliness was officially out of this world! By '79, we were all clamoring to see more of Seymour... Eventually our wishes were gloriously granted!

#3: Bo Derek

The poster girl business was booming in the '70s, but few pin-ups were pinned up quite as often as Bo Derek! A dream sequence in the 1979 movie "10" provided a now iconic image of Derek running on the beach that was branded across many a teenage boy's bedroom wall! Decades before "Baywatch," the slo-mo shots of Derek bouncing along the sand were enough to keep anyone awake at night! In terms of sexiness in the '70s, all systems were Bo!

#2: Raquel Welch

Another poster-ed princess, Raquel Welch entered the '70s with everyone well aware of her attractiveness! The American Actress earned her attention in the film "One Million Years B.C."... She said three lines, but donned an outfit one million times more revealing than what the '60s cinema-goer was used to! A poster that would remain in pop-culture with "The Shawshank Redemption", for Welch the '70s were sexy non-stop! At the end of the decade, Playboy dubbed her "Most Desired Woman"... And we can't argue with that!

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions.
- Jacqueline Bisset

- Catherine Bach

- Pam Grier

- Lauren Hutton

- Cybill Shepherd


#1: Farrah Fawcett

The second of the “Charlie's Angels” to make our countdown, Farrah Fawcett out-sexifies everybody else in the '70s! She was one of the crime-fighting cuties in the show's first season, but is perhaps better known for a certain photo shoot, and a certain red swimsuit! The smiling side profile is one of the most well-known images of the era! Those eyes, and that hair... And those legs?! She's our winner, and she's enough to make a grown man weep!
