Vicki Dougan, also known as “The Back,” was an American actress and model who gained popularity in the 1950s and 1960s for her distinctive style and glamorous appearance. She was given the nickname “The Back” due to her penchant for wearing low-cut, backless dresses that accentuated her curvaceous figure.
Dougan was born on September 18, 1929, in Brooklyn, New York. She began her career as a model, and her striking beauty and hourglass figure quickly caught the attention of photographers and designers. Her most iconic feature was her back, which she often showcased in her fashion choices.
Dougan’s fame rose to new heights when she appeared on the cover of the men’s magazine “Modern Man” in 1957. The photograph, which captured her from behind, wearing a low-cut black dress, garnered significant attention and catapulted her into the spotlight. The image became iconic and is still remembered today.
Dougan’s distinctive style and glamorous image led to her being dubbed “The Back of Hollywood.” She became a popular figure in Hollywood and was often seen at high-profile events and parties. Despite her fame and visibility, Dougan’s acting career did not achieve the same level of success as her modeling endeavors.
While Vicki Dougan’s career in the entertainment industry declined in the late 1960s, she left a lasting impression with her unique fashion choices and her status as a symbol of glamour and sensuality during that era. Her nickname “The Back” remains associated with her memorable style and image.
