Bettie Page was an American model who became famous for her pin up modeling and fetish photos. Commonly known as the “queen of pin up,” it is no surprise why so many pin up and retro fashion boutiques seek to create clothing that complements her style and life.
Bettie Page was Miss January 1955 for Playboy Magazine, with Hugh Hefner calling her a “remarkable lady, an iconic figure in pop culture.”
The photographs and style of Bettie Page created the popular pin up styles many of us know today. High-waisted bikinis, bright colors and the hands-on-the-knees seductive pose are all aspects of the pin up lifestyle that were, in part, made popular by her. Her styles ranged from sweet and innocent polka dotted bikinis to fierce and fearless bondage photos. One popular component of her outfits is the pin up playsuit so many of us know and recognize as part of the pin up lifestyle.
