Bikini Girl Jill St. John

Glamoursplash is back after taking a couple of weeks off. Thanks to all of you for your kind words on the passing of my sister Barb. I truly appreciate all of the support. We'll kick off the morning by taking a look at beautiful Jill St. John.

Film and television actress Jill St. John was born Jill Arlyn Oppenheim on August 19, 1940 in Los Angeles, California, United States. Her major film roles occurred during the 1960s and early 1970s.

Virtually all of Jill's film assignments contrived to get her into the skimpiest of swimwear; in the 1971 James Bond film Diamonds are Forever, Jill spent at least three-quarters of the picture in bikinis.

In the 80s and 90s Jill went on to focus on one of her many hobbies cooking. She became the cooking expert on the daytime TV series Good Morning America and as the food columnist of the USA Weekend newspaper supplement. She has also published many well received cookbooks.

She is currently married to long time friend and actor Robert Wagner.

Beautiful figure! Too bad she didn't design aprons in a swimsuit design!

There is a wonderful photo in Rj Wagners' bio of a 1950's dance class at the studio he was working for. In the photo are a young Natalie Wood, Jill St.John, and Stefanie Power. Stefanie says the caption should read-"he married the entire class!"

She was a very beautiful and all natural woman. She had a sex appeal that was hard to miss and I am sure many men would agree.
I always enjoyed watching her and her oh so sultry voice was most definitely the icing on the cake :)
