Remembering Bettie Page


Bettie Page, the world’s most famous pinup girl, died today at the age of 85.

Famous for her controversial sexy photos in the 1950s, Page retired from modeling in her Thirties and became a born-again Christian. But she never felt ashamed of her nudity. “I never thought it was shameful. I felt normal…God approves of nudity. Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, they were naked as jaybirds.”

Page’s photos are still some of the most popular and collectible pinups today.

Betty Page is all the rage. Pin Up girls have bodies, full-figured bodies with actual breasts and curvy hips. They paint their lips a luscious red and sculpt their hair into timeless waves.

How can you get the look that will make men pant?

I found this fun Web site when I was researching pencil skirts. It’s called Pin Up Girl Clothing.

They have the most adorable rockabilly-inspired clothes and the cutest shoes imaginable. You know you want a naughty tattoo-print tee shirt or a vintagey retro-looking bikini.

You can shop online or if you live in Southern California, you can visit their retail store in Pasadena.

Release your inner bombshell.
