Here are just a few images of some girls from the 1960's who have decked themselves out in gold. You cannot deny however that Shirley Eaton as Miss Jill Masterson from "Goldfinger" (1964) is the goddess of gold. In the film she is painted completely in gold by orders of "the man with the Midas Touch", Auric Goldfinger, and dies from apparent skin suffocation. Soon an urban myth spread that Eaton had actually died during the filming as a result of this, but it has been proven that skin suffocation cannot occur. However that is not to say that death cannot occur from having one's body completely painted. Death can occur as a result of the body not being able to regulate its temperature. In spite of this, there is no doubt that the image of Eaton painted in gold is one from the 1960's that will be remembered always.
I myself would have loved to have dressed myself all in gold for the post but unfortunately I opened my wardrobe and realized that I do not own any gold items of clothing.
Note to self: I must change this!
