Starlet Rossy Mendoza, the so-called “shortest waist” in the 70s, dies – El Sol de México

Rossy Mendoza, icon of Mexican starlets in the 70s, died at 80 years of age.

María del Rosario Mendoza, her real name, was hospitalized with palliative care due to the lupus she suffered from.

According to ForoTV, the star died as a result of cardiorespiratory arrest.

“The shortest waist” was the phrase that was presented to the star who was born on June 6, 1943 in Ixtlán del Río, Nayarit, although years later she moved with her family to Sonora.

Her beauty and sensuality opened the doors to the artistic world when at that time vedettes such as Lyn May, Wanda Seux and Olga Breeskin occupied the marquees of the main theaters in Mexico City, such as the Blanquita.

Because of his statuesque silhouette they also called him “The Body” and it is even said that he inspired Pérez Prado, the “king of mambo”, to compose a song in his honor.

Rossy Mendoza was already a star in the capital’s nighttime entertainment centers when he made his film debut with Capulina contra los Vampiros in 1971.
