Today my daughter, a professional photographer, told me she is frequently asked to do ‘pin-up’ photos. It brought to mind all the famous pin-ups of my era. I’m sure you won’t mind recalling them with me.
The very term ‘pin-up’ brings to mind the Vargas girls of magazine and calendar fame. Such long legs. So feminine. In the very recognizable Vargas style of the 30’and 40’s.
And the Petty girls, ditto:
And the real girls: Pin-ups that went to war with our GI’s. Most famous from World War II are Betty Grable and Rita Hayworth:
Then in the 50’s came the world-renowned, Marilyn Monroe. I was so lucky to be a teenager during her heyday. She made the full-bodied woman the standard!
And two other beauties that deserve some space, they were very popular pin-ups:
Fast forward a bit to the 80’s, and my teenage son had this lovely on his wall.
Then in the 90’s, Demi Moore was the poster girl pin up.
Today’s most beautiful: Halle Berry
And the best for last: My sister-in-law, Betty Boop.
