Raquel Welch stunned fans with a youthful appearance at a pre-Emmys bash over the weekend.

The 73-year-old actress is well known as a sex symbol, especially following her role in 1966's "One Million Years B.C. in which she donned a doe-skin bikini.

On Friday, Welch showed no signs of aging at the Variety & Women In Film Pre-Emmys party in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Wearing a skin-tight leopard print dress, Welch harkened back to her 1960's hey-days as she posed for cameras, according to the Daily Mail.

The Golden Globe-winner paired the pencil dress with strappy high heels and gold hoop earrings, earning praise from avid fans on Twitter.

"No words for how amazing she looks," wrote Twitter user Fay Fredericks.

Jessica added, "I hope to be as fit as Raquel Welch when I'm in my 70s #amazing."

"Raquel Welch looks absolutely marvelous and not just for a 73 year old," wrote Elissa.

Furthermore, many Twitter users defended Welch against plastic surgery accusations.

"Here's another one, questioning if @Raquel_Welch had work done," wrote Sally. "WHO CARES?? She's fab at ANY age & ANY reason!

Meanwhile, Welch joins several other actresses who have aged gracefully in Hollywood. However, many starlets have opened up about the pressure to look younger, including Michelle Pfeiffer.

"Having to watch yourself age on a giant movie screen is simply not normal," the 55-year-old actress told Ladies Home Journal. "It can wreak havoc on your psyche. My dermatologist said to me once, 'You know that 10X magnifying mirror you have in your bathroom? Throw it away.' It was the best advice anybody ever gave me. Of course, now my eyes are weaker and I can't see to put my makeup on without that mirror!"

Nevertheless, Pfeiffer revealed that after a certain age, actresses no longer have to pretend to be younger.

"Once you get over a certain hump there actually is less pressure," the "Family" star added. "You don't have to look young anymore. I've moved over to that other side."

In addition to Pfeiffer, Melanie Griffith has also lamented Hollywood's obsession with youth.

"In a lot of ways, [Hollywood] is a very superficial place," the actress told Fox News. "It's all about youth and beauty, for women anyway."
