The event which took place in Beverly Hills on Friday paved the way for one of America's most iconic sex symbols to show off her perfect figure. The Golden Globe winner flaunted her famous hour-glass physique wearing a spot-on pencil-cut dress and gladiator heels. The former Playboy cover girl - born Jo Raquel Tejada - looked as though she hadn't aged at all since her 1960's hey-day. It's no wonder the real-life pin-up rocked a lace-front bouncy bob since she's the proprietor of HairU Wear's Raquel Welch wig collection.

The evergreen mother-of-two's bikini body made her a household name in films like One Million Years B.C., Myra Breckinridge, and Bedazzled. Raquel, who fronts Foster Grant eyewear, will next appear alongside Gina Gershon in Lifetime's original movie, House of Versace. Welch plays Donatella's Aunt Lucia in the fashion biopic - premiering October 5 - based on Deborah Ball's 2010 book. She's been divorced four times and is mother to 53-year-old son Damon and 51-year-old daughter Tahnee with her first husband James Welch.

Raquel found a fan in Glee star Jane Lynch, who posed with the living legend at Scarpetta. Also at the Variety party were Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss in a coral body-con dress and Kiernan Shipka in a full-skirted frock. Their co-star Jessica Pare displayed her long lean figure in a strapless black gown.

The AMC series received 11 Emmy nominations, including nods for Moss, Christina Hendricks, Jon Hamm, and more. Lynch, who's up for supporting actress this Sunday, joined her Glee co-star Jenna Ushkowitz wearing a golden tube dress.
