I love Bettie Page. She was one of the first pin-up models who also went a bit into a kinky direction with some BDSM influences. She wasn’t as sex-positive or revolutionary in her thinking as I wish she had been. But it was the late 1950s, and there were still a lot of barriers that needed to be broken.
She has been a fashion icon in the goth subculture, and she seems to have been among those that sparked the beginning of the sexual revolution in the 1960s. She was ground-breaking, without wanting to be so. She used to say that she just dressed the way she liked, and that she loved being in the nude.
I find many of her images absolutetly stunning. So I thought I’d do a little tribute to her sort of lingerie, pin up style. I don’t know if I would have made her proud, but I think I captured her vibe quite well!
