Things are about to get sexy in here!

We're taking a moment to look back at some of the most stunning bombshells in Old Hollywood history. Now, one of our favourite parts about these women was the fact they totally owned their curves, and always appeared confident in their sexuality. And sure, they were technically still lean, but these women weren't ashamed to have a little extra meat on their bones. (Sophia Loren even credited spaghetti for her killer curves.)

Stars like Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and even Josephine Baker, with their hourglass figures, paved the way for contemporaries like Kate Upton, Salma Hayek, and Christina Hendricks, whose voluptuous figures add a little diversity to Hollywood's homogeneous landscape. (But that's not to say thin people aren't also gorgeous...we just like variety.)

And while you probably don't need further proof that these women are gorgeous, we're giving it to you anyways. You're welcome!
