Quotes: Bettie Page

I never kept up with the fashions. I believed in wearing what I thought looked good on me – Bettie Page

I watched the movie The Notorious Bettie Page last night. I didn’t know much about Bettie Page’s life before watching it, and it was very interesting to learn a bit more about America in the 1950s and attitudes to modelling and vice.  It seems fascinating to me that the pin up queen of the 1950s (or of all time according to some people) was such a religious person, and yet the two things seemed to sit quite comfortably with her.
