She's been referred to as an international sex symbol for her iconic bikini-clad appearance in One Million Years B.C.

And Raquel Welch was looking as fabulous as always as she headed out and about in Los Angeles a day after her 78th birthday last week.

The Hollywood legend looked super chic in head to toe white as she shopped with a female friend.

Raquel teamed a fedora hat with a loose white dress and flip flops for the outing, keeping cool in shades.

Later, she swapped her flats for a pair of towering heels, teamed with chic wide legged trousers.  

The stunning actress has always insisted that she has not had surgical help to maintain the glamour of her Sixties heyday.

Instead, Raquel, who became a sex symbol in the 1967 film One Million Years BC, champions looking after herself in the ‘same way you maintain your home’.

Her regimen is believed to include eating a low-carb diet, along with an hour-and-a-half of yoga each day and bizarre beauty regime which includes Bag Balm - a product which is said to banish wrinkles and is used by farmers to soothe their cows’ skin if it becomes sore.

Meanwhile, despite her stunning good looks and sparkling charisma, Raquel currently remains single.

When asked in 2015 why she thinks her four marriages didn't work out, she told Piers Morgan that she's rather content alone.

She explained: 'Because I'm too set in my ways. I like what I do, I actually enjoy being me and I make a very good living at it and I'm happy. I don't have to have a man,'

Welch separated from her fourth husband restaurateur Richard Palmer in 2003, after four years of marriage.

She was previously married to actor and producer André Weinfeld from 1980 until 1990, and before him there was Patrick Curtis, a producer, to whom she was married in 1967 until 1972.

Her first husband, who she got her name from, was James Welch: they were married for five years, from 1959 until 1964.

She has two children from this marriage, Damon, 57, and Latanne, 55.
