La Vedette de America: Iris Chacon
Long before J-Lo's derriere (or Beyonce's or Kim Kardashian, for that matter) was the thing of many a man's dreams and sent women running to surgeons in search of a larger bumper...La Vedette de America (America's showgirl) hypnotized viewers with her moves and...wears. Iris is a beloved icon of Puerto Rico who pushed the envelope of female sexuality and entertained the masses on her weekly variety show for over a decade. She also appeared in films and numerous telenovelas (soap operas) and toured the world as a showgirl/entertainer headliner.
