Classic Icons: Bettie Page

page-bettie2And of course,a vintage week can’t be without Bettie Page (April 22, 1923 – December 11, 2008) was an American model who became famous in the 1950s for her fetish modeling and pin-up photos. [tweetmeme source="erotixx" only_single=false] She has often been called the "Queen of pinups". Her look, including her jet black hair and trademark bangs, has influenced many artists.

She was also one of the earliest Playmates of the Month for Playboy magazine. "I think that she was a remarkable lady, an iconic figure in pop culture who influenced sexuality, taste in fashion, someone who had a tremendous impact on our society," Playboy founder Hugh Hefner told the Associated Press.

Her later life was marked by depression, violent mood swings and several years in a state mental institution. In the 1960s, she converted to Christianity and served as a Baptist missionary in Angola. After years of obscurity, she experienced a resurgence of popularity in the 1980s and has a significant cult following and no wonder why…

This one is dedicated to Taknoo, enjoy your mayday dude.

Bettie Page – Outstanding fetish and pinup model

She was also one of the earliest Playmates of the Month for Playboy magazine. "I think that she was a remarkable lady, an iconic figure in pop culture who influenced sexuality, taste in fashion, someone who had a tremendous impact on our society," Playboy founder Hugh Hefner told the Associated Press.

Her later life was marked by depression, violent mood swings and several years in a state mental institution. In the 1960s, she converted to Christianity and served as a Baptist missionary in Angola. After years of obscurity, she experienced a resurgence of popularity in the 1980s and has a significant cult following.

In a 1998 interview with Playboy, she commented on her career:

I never thought it was shameful. I felt normal. It’s just that it was much better than pounding a typewriter eight hours a day, which gets monotonous.

"She had a saucy innocence that is both contemporary and provocative, and also nostalgic."
— Hugh M. Hefner

"She’s the perfect combination of sexuality and sensuality. Like Elvis, Montgomery Clift and James Dean, Bettie Page brought something modern to the Fifties."
— Albert Watson

"Gorgeous with an amazing sense of style! Her magic is transcendent. She’s in our minds like Marilyn Monroe – Forever" — Todd Oldham
