Quote:
From a Tennessee orphanage to the Playboy mansion, from honor student to bondage model, Bettie Page embodies a lifetime of contradictions—and was the naughty poster girl for a repressed era in American culture. With signature ebony bangs fringing the palest of slate-blue eyes, her bikini-clad likeness graced everything from magazine covers to album jackets. But it was her whip-accessorized fetish photographs for Irving Klaw's early fifties catalogs and films that would become her trademark. They would also land her at the center of Senator Estes Kefauver's very public campaign against "pornography" in 1955.

Though her nearly 10-year modeling career was, by most standards, quite long, her disappearance in 1957—she became an Evangelical Christian—was abrupt and complete. But despite her absence, her style has inspired many imitators. Burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese invites obvious comparisons, and now the fair-haired Gretchen Mol has gone dark to play the provocative pin-up queen in The Notorious Bettie Page, Mary Harron's new biopic that opens today.


Whip it good! Page, as many remember her, in a fetish photo circa 1953. / Bathing beauty, circa 1954.


Red-hot Bettie Page, who was nicknamed "The Girl with the Perfect Figure," circa 1954. / Candy striper: Page sits for a studio portrait in the fifties.


Kicking up some fun, 1950s. / You Tarzan, me Bettie. On a shoot in Boca Raton with photographer (and ex-model) Bunny Yeager.


The fringe element: Page, with her signature bangs, circa 1954. Bettie taught herself to sew while in her teens, and often designed and created her own costumes and bathing suits, including this one.

I've seen enough Bettie Page images to last me a lifetime....I used to work at Frasers Autographs where they literally had thousands of signed Bettie Page photos.....and I had to file them all in code order!
It was a great way of accessing loads of archive images though........

I love really fine, delicate features....
I'm not so looking forward to the new biopic....sounds like a bit of a flop....
