Pictured here is a stunning Jaclyn Smith all dolled up as Kelly Garrett in the television series Charlie's Angels back in 1977. This is probably her best-known role, the show ran from 1976 until 1981 and she was the only original female lead to stay on the series for its full run. She even came back to make a cameo appearance in the 2003 film Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.

Smith had numerous film roles and miniseries over the years. She was nominated for the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Miniseries or TV Film for the title role in the TV film Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy (1981). She developed and launched her own brands of clothing and perfumes.

Back in the 1970s, Miss World America Lynda Carter scored the role of the great Wonder Woman herself. She was the first mainstream female superhero and she quickly became a household name. From there, her fame skyrocketed to pop icon status. She proved to the public at a time where women were still largely considered ‘delicate’ in nature, that a woman could be tough and that tough could be sexy. She rocked her own obvious sex appeal combined with her character’s incredible strength and abilities at the same time. Even after her Wonder Woman days were over, she hardly retired her superhero cape. Lynda continued her battle for justice off-screen as an advocate for LGBT rights and eventually, she also joined efforts in finding the cure for cancer.
