October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we're starting to think pink. Breast cancer affects about 1 in 8 women in the United States, which is why early detection and prevention is essential. We've teamed up in support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation and put together an amazing Breast Cancer Awareness Gift Guide. We're donating 20% of the proceeds from the purchase of all of these fabulous retro-inspired pink items to the National Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation.
There are few icons in the Pin Up community that reach a level of supernova stardom quite like the notorious Bettie Page.
From her signature jet-black hair, to her now iconic bangs, Bettie Page will forever retain her title as the Queen of Pin Ups.
Having gained popularity amongst a rather interesting subset of culture in the 1950s, Ms. Page found herself at the forefront of provocative imagery, while maintaining her wholesome "girl-next-door" persona.
Perhaps best known for her shots with Bunny Yeager in Miami, Bettie inspired one pin up after another to hit the beach with both confidence and a hint of sexuality.
The incomparable Bettie Page's career spanned less than 10 years, but her lasting effect is a fabulous one. Once a week, someone on the UV Team contemplates getting "Bettie Page bangs"- and they lovingly pose as though they were on the white sands of the Florida Keys circa 1955. Not to mention, Ms. Page has inspired such retro-inspired lines as the UV-favorite Bettie Page Clothing.
So throw on those stilettos and slide into some stockings as we salute a UV Icon: the one and only, Bettie Page!
