This post has nothing to do with neckties however you may like it, especially if you like cult classic films.  And more important, this blog is for men and this film features a very sexy Jane Fonda and other very sexy women - Jeffrey Hunter

Barbarella is a cult 1968 science fiction film based on the French Barbarella comics created by Jean-Claude Forest. The film was directed by Roger Vadim and stars Jane Fonda, who was Vadim's wife at the time. The film also cast John Phillip Law, Milo O'Shea.

In the far future, a highly sexual woman, Barbarella played by Jane Fonda is tasked with finding and stopping the evil Durand-Durand. Along the way she encounters various unusual people and life forms, including robotic warriors. 
The unforgettable opening of the film features Fonda undressing in zero gravity.  In the future in the year 40,000 Barbarella is tasked with a mission by the President of Earth to find Durand Durand.  He is the creator of the Positronic Ray, a weapon that could be used to destroy Earth.  She must travel in her space ship to the far reaches of space to planet Tau Ceti to find him and destroy the weapon.  She crashes her ship upon arriving on the planet and from then on, the very sexy Barbarella is helped by handsome men anxious to have intimate quality time with her.  Her adventure is action packed and along the way she is outfitted with some very sexy costumes.

A side note of interest - the 80's and 90's rock group Durand Durand not only got their name from their fondness of the film that they used several set themes that were similar to Barbarella sets on their music videos.
