She can be either or both depending on her mood.
Here's another nice shot of b-movie actress Nadia Cassini, who we last saw back in 2010. Cassini, who in our view is one of the better products from low budget cinema, was born in the U.S., but worked mostly in Europe, appearing in such films as Pulp, Il dio Serpente, and Starcrash, the latter of which we'll definitely write about soon, since it's one of our favorite bad movies ever. But don't blame Cassini—she was absolutely fine in it. And she's absolutely fine here too. This image first appeared in the magazine Oui in 1972.

Form and fashion through French eyes.
Below are five more pieces from the genius Alain Gourdan, aka Aslan, whose women had exaggerated curves and a pretty sharp fashion sense. In addition to bookcovers, Aslan did a long running series of pin-ups for the French nudie magazine Oui that allowed him to dispense with clothing altogether. We’ve collected quite a few of those and will get some posted later. In the meantime, see other Aslan bookcovers here and here.
