BARBARA NICHOLS

Barbara Nichols is one of the more underrated (and sadly largely forgotten) pinup queens of the '50s and '60s. Her tough attitude and steely sexiness made her one of the more fiercely gorgeous bombshells of the time. While Marilyn Monroe was the perfect superstar and Jayne Mansfield came off as a bubbly ditz, Barbara Nichols was the cigarette smoking bar owner that'd just as soon crack a pool cue over your head as kiss you. She passed away way too early in 1976, but her photos live on forever.
