notorious bettie paige
I hadn't heard of 1950s pin up Bettie Paige prior to seeing this image on the cover of a film magazine last year, but flipping through March's W, I came across a picture of a model in similar gear, and she reminded me of Ms. Paige. I love it when women style themselves in a way that defies the expectations of their era, which is definitely what she did.
