P-Magazine is a former Belgian magazine aimed primarily at a male audience. The magazine started in December 1997 as the successor to the defunct weekly De Nieuwe Panorama. The last paper issue appeared at the beginning of February 2017. The magazine was a Dutch-language weekly (from 2015 a monthly) that covered cars, film, women and games, as well as politics, sociology, science, music and literature. The magazine was best known for its annual 8-week swimming costume special, for which famous Flemish women posed at exotic locations. It also featured more or less well-known female models or persons on the cover every week.
The complete postcard series included several models and TV personalities who were never seen on the screen. So for this post, we selected 13 postcards with beautiful film stars who were popular in the 20th Century.
No. 47: Nastassja Kinski

The October 1996 issue of American film magazine Movieline originally had a cover with this picture of Teri Hatcher wearing nothing but rope wrapped around her. This proved too controversial and a second cover picture (of Hatcher in a dress) was substituted.
American actress, writer, presenter and singer Teri Hatcher (1964) is most known as Lois Lane on the television series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman (1993–1997), as Paris Carver in the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), and as Susan Mayer on the TV series Desperate Housewives (2004–2012). For the latter, she won a Golden Globe Award, three Screen Actors Guild Awards and a nomination for an Emmy Award.

Roles in My Best Friend's Wedding (1997), There's Something About Mary (1998), and Shrek (2001) – in which she voiced Princess Fiona – solidified her as one of the most bankable Hollywood stars. Her other film credits include hits like Charlie's Angels (2000), Gangs of New York (2003) and In Her Shoes (2005).
