Argentinian Classic Bombshell: 35 Fabulous Photos of Isabel Sarli in the 1950s and ’60s

Born 1935 in Concordia, Entre Ríos, Argentinian actress and model Isabel Sarli began her career as a model and beauty queen, becoming Miss Argentina and reaching the semi-finals of Miss Universe 1955. She was discovered by Armando Bó in 1956 and made her acting debut the following year with Thunder Among the Leaves, in which a controversial nude scene featuring Sarli made it the first film to feature full frontal nudity in Argentine cinema.

Sarli, nicknamed Coca, was known for starring in several sexploitation films by Armando Bó, especially in the 1960s and 1970s. She was the muse and protagonist of his films, and became the quintessential sex symbol of her country and a popular figure worldwide.

After Bó’s death in 1981, Sarli virtually retired from acting until the 1990s, when she appeared in a handful of film roles and TV cameos before her death in 2019. Since the year 2000 and onwards, her films have been revalued for their camp and kitsch content and are recognized as cult classics, while Sarli has established herself as a pop icon.

Take a look at these fabulous photos to see the beauty of young Isabel Sarli in the 1950s and 1960s.
