Bravo 27 Oct 1977 (Nastassja Kinski)

771027 Bravo cover

Nastassja Kinski features, again, on the cover of Bravo on 27 October 1977. The cover story promised the truth about Kinski, following headliners in the press about the 16-year-olds exploits in Hollywood. Turns out that Nasti was still down to earth, and that Roman Polanski never laid a hand on her (presumably because Kinski was too old for him).

Other stories: An ill boy asks why he must die (later it was reported that he received a flood of letters), Runaways and Smokie are both coming on tour in Germany and Uriah Heep just toured there, and The Rubettes are trying out a country sound.

Nastassja Kinski features on the Bravo cover of 24 August 1978. Not for the first time, as we saw a few weeks ago. Once Nasti had turned 16, Bravo was quite happy to show topless pics of her. The spread below was quite typical of the magazine’s Kinski coverage.

Other stories: T. Rex career in review. Elvis films on TV. Is Ian Mitchell going to break up Rosetta Stone? Pillow-talk on the new craze: CB radio. Black Sabbath in concert. Make-up tips for the disco. Johnny Rotten interview.

And Dr Korff again reminded boys that having a small penis is OK. Was that his August theme every year?

77-05-26 Bravo Cover

Nastassja Kinski features on the Bravo cover page of 26 May 1977. Inside was a double-page spread of black & white photos of Kinski, still a teenager, including a full-frontal nude photo from a movie.

On other pages, the excellent sex-ed guy Dr Korff discussed “friendship with sex”, and Bravo began a new “Starschnitt”; over several weeks you’d collect pieces of what would become a life-size poster of the featured subject, in this case Smokie.
