Recognized For Her Beauty
Her parents decided to move the family to California, and not only after they decided to get a divorce. Raquel was obviously upset by this, but at the same time she was becoming recognized for her natural charm and glow. At the San Diego county fair, she won the title of “Miss Fairest of the Fair”. That wasn’t the only title the 14-year-old was donned with at the fair; she was also named “Miss Photogenic” and “Miss Contour”.
Making An Impression
Placing first at contests seemed to become a trend for the young Raquel Welch. She managed to receive the titles of both “Miss La Jolla” and “Miss Southern California”.
