Miss August Unique Vintage Pinup Girl
Name: Nicole Miranda Thompson
From: Lebanon, Indiana. It’s a nice, small town. No matter where life takes me it will always be home!
Ambitions: I would like to be an alternative model, the branch of modeling that mixes old school beauty with tasteful tattoos and piercings. Every single woman has a captivating beauty about her that she should embrace. I hope I can encourage girls that true beauty starts on the inside when you carry yourself with grace, dignity, and compassion. When you’re comfortable in your own skin, the beauty that radiates out is contagious. If that doesn’t work out, I plan on getting my masters in library and media sciences. I love my job as a librarian! I’m all about enjoying life and every single moment and opportunity it brings!
Favorite Vintage Accessory: An outfit isn’t complete unless I have the perfect flower pinned into my hair! High heels and a smile are up there too!
Favorite Pinup Icon: Bettie Page. No doubt about that! Her look is so iconic. All you have to do is see that smile, those bangs, and those curves once and you’ll never forget her. She is the only model from that era who has amassed a cult following behind her, yet she was so humble. I truly admire that Bettie was setting standards and then kept raising the bar. She’s a legend. Maybe I look up to her so much for being another small town girl with a dream!
