Barbra Streisand is a superstar performer who is known for her many talents, namely singing, acting and dancing, but it’s safe to say she’s not known for being a racy icon of underground fashion.
She might have been able to add that credit to her resume if these photos from a 1970 BDSM themed photo shoot had been released to the public.
Actually, they kinda were released to the public- these shots come from a photo shoot set up during production of the movie The Owl and The Pussycat, in which Streisand plays Doris "a somewhat uneducated actress, model and part-time prostitute."
The photos were used as a prop in the movie, to be seen by Doris' love interest Felix as he walks by an adult movie theater. Imagine walking by a movie theater and seeing a pic of Babs decked out in bondage gear! *gasp*
Tara McGinley at Dangerous Minds took the time to gather up these totally hardcore images, and the online world is a better, yet somehow less wholesome, place for her efforts.
