Rita Hayworth
Claim to fame: Rita Hayworth was a professional dancer at only fourteen. She danced in clubs and bars which got her noticed by studio executives. A complete make-over, including plastic surgery transformed her. She was known for her breath taking beauty. Thanks to her pinup photos she quickly became a favourite of soldiers during World War II. When her most famous movie, ‘Gilda’, came out in 1946, the movie poster was censored due to a slight hint of her cleavage.
