1970's Chicks: Penthouse

August 1972

In my book, the most interesting women's attire to come out of the '70s.
Update: The three Penthouse covers were in violation of the Blogger Content Policy for adult content. Rather than mark this blog as "adult" I have removed the images.

Are you kidding?! Hilarious! The best thing about these are the tan marks! Oh my lord, people, get rid of tan marks! If the model is silly enough not to get rid of them, put the make-up artist to more use!

Alice- Guccione invested heavily in tan lines.

Ben- What?

Anon- Sorry, NSFW warning applied.

"women's attire" very funny :P I love the grainy feel of these pics!

Love the camera's view but yeesh(!), I'm so glad the '70s are behind us. Seriously, feather boas? In any other country except America - who refuses to give it up, and indeed is nostalgic for it still - it would be a culturally and economically "lost decade."

In fact, did other countries even go through the '70s?

Now you're talkin'! Very nice Tintin. I have a soft spot for the 1970s, so this is right up my alley so to speak. One of the beauties of this site is that we can be talking repp ties and tassel loafers one minute, and the next minute commenting on the charms of cover girls. The contrast is highly provocative, in a good way. Just like tan lines!

You know you are killing me with these posts. The UNC one more than this. But still...

Just don't spoil the fun by attaching those four pics to four of your lady posters.

(I prefer to imagine them as they seem to imagine themselves.)

Alice, tan lines are a fetish in themselves

Tintin: I am a minimalist. Not just in clothing. A woman's naked body is best when the skin is beautifully and naturally toned. Tan marks are the mark (pun definitely intended) of an amateur. I don't care how big an empire he created. (Yes, I have strong opinions and sometimes I give in to a rant.)

Alice Olive - growing up in the 70s and 80s and summering in the South of France tanlines were essential - to show how deep and fabulous your tan was and how cute and tiny your bikini...but then again we did sunbathe topless.
