She first captivated her nation with her 'bottle-shaped figure' in the 1950s.

Then Isabel Sarli went on to national fame in the '60s and '70s as the first Argentinian actress to perform fully-frontal nudity on camera.

And now Sarli, 77, is still turning heads - but today it is after becoming the nation's ambassador for pop culture.

President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner said the national sex symbol would be 'a true representative of national culture' as its new ambassador.

She added: 'It is as much for her acting skills in films as for being considered a popular icon of her day and an emblematic figure of Argentine cinema.'

BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA – Elena Reynaga, a thin, olive-skinned woman, says she chose to become a sex worker at age 19. Today, Reynaga is 60 and retired.

“My body can’t anymore,” she says with a smile. “I was retired.”

But as the founder and former secretary-general of Asociación de Mujeres Meretrices de Argentina Nación, an unofficial union of sex workers, she continues to fight for her former colleagues to legally and safely perform their work.

The association is currently finalizing the details of a bill that would legalize sex work, give sex workers rights and eliminate sexual exploitation. At a recent meeting on the bill, Reynaga shared her story with politicians, labor union representatives and fellow association members.

“I still remember the first time that I was taken prisoner,” says Reynaga, her eyes full of tears. “How I cried! It was in the year 1976. It left me scarred.”
