7. & 6. Josephine Baker and Gypsy Rose Lee (tie)
Striptastic Moment: We can't get away with a discussion of famous stripping moments in pop culture without mentioning two ladies who started it all. Josephine Baker (left) was the epitome of exotic sexiness in Paris during the Roaring '20s, performing for many years in the famous Folies Bergère review. Gypsy Rose Lee held down the burlesque fort in the U.S. during the '30s and '40s and was known for her humorous act and emphasis on the "tease" of striptease. Either way, Dita, Xtina and the rest of the nekkid ladies on this list owe a lot to these two old-school divas.
