Most Infamous Moment: In 1963, Mansfield became one of the first actresses to appear nude onscreen in Promises, Promises.

Mansfield invented the nip-slip. She wasn't one to shy away from the camera and even invited photographers into her custom-built house to take pictures of her in her heart-shaped pool. Mansfield even famously got married in a see-through dress. She was the major sex symbol in the late 50's early 60's until her untimely death at age 34 in a car accident, which her kids, including actress Mariska Hargitay, was also involved in.
