Raquel Welch was an American-born actress and model. She was born on September 5, 1940 in Chicago, Illinois, United States. Her birth name is Jo Raquel Tejada. She is sometimes credited as Jo Raquel Welch.

Raquel Welch was a featured Playboy model in December 1979. Raquel Welch's measurements are 37-24-36. She had natural breasts, brown eyes, and brown hair.

Welch's ascent to stardom was catalyzed by her performance in "Fantastic Voyage" in 1966, leading to an exclusive contract with 20th Century Fox. She carved a unique niche in the film industry by taking on roles of resilient women, challenging the conventional archetype of a sex symbol, and emerged as a cinematic icon during the 1960s and 1970s.

Her exceptional talent didn't go unnoticed; in 1974, Welch clinched a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture Actress in a Musical or Comedy for her role in "The Three Musketeers". Her compelling performance in "Right to Die" also earned her a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in a Television Film in 1987. Further solidifying her status as a screen siren, Empire magazine listed her among the "100 Sexiest Stars in Film History" in 1995. Playboy magazine also recognized her enduring appeal, placing her third on their compilation of the "100 Sexiest Stars of the Twentieth Century". Welch's timeless allure was celebrated in January 2007 when she was chosen as the latest muse for MAC Cosmetics' Beauty Icon series.

Her daughter Tahnee Welch also posed for Playboy in November 1995.
