The vote tallies were neck-and-neck (and neck) between three of our lovely contestants for our August 2006 pinup contest, as we closed out the summer in true bombshell fashion. (Always leave them wanting more, dahlings.) The battle between Danni, Janet and Mia continued down to the very end, calling for a near tie-breaker. The vote from the Fedora Lounge went to Mia, while the staff of RetroRadar was partial to Danni. But in the polls, the majority ruled, and the delicious Miss Janet took the crown. Congratulations to this hot tamale from the sunny Florida shores, whose alluring curves are sure to bring any sailor to attention! (Missed this month’s action?

Although she originally started as a glamour model, 24-year-old Mia found it boring and unfulfilling–until she stumbled across some photos of a modern-day model emulating the popular pinup styles of the past. “I realized my body was something that, in that era, would have been appreciated–like Bettie Page and Marilyn Monroe,” says Mia, adding, “I love cheesecake!” A recent transplant to LA from the Big Apple, Mia has guest starred on shows such as The Sopranos and As the World Turns. We look forward to seeing more of this little vixen on the small screen!
Proof that the Aussies have far more to offer than shrimp on the barbie, the lovely Miss Lola delivers curves in all the right places. (Okay, she’s originally from New Zealand, but for many of us, “Down Under” just means the other half of the planet.) “I’m obsessed with cheesecake photography–the cheesier the better,” says Lola of her passion for retro pop culture. She adds, “Other loves of mine include music, cowboys, leopard print everything, polka dot dresses, bangs, bellys, british bulldogs, travelling, and neo-pinups.” In her spare time, Lola likes to hang out with her pooch, Sharpie, her fat british blue cat, Buick, and her beautiful boyfriend, Guy Le Guy. Hmmm, maybe we can ween her off that last one…
This 24-year-old fun-loving artistic girl is a bartender by day, and aspiring pinup model by night. (Or maybe it’s the other way around…) “I was just charmed by the innocent sexiness of the ’40s and ’50s pinups,” says Danni. “They were some of the most beautiful women that I’d ever seen, without really showing anthing.” In addition to posing for the camera, this California cutie loves to draw, sing, dance, and make costumes. Adds the delicious Danni, “I also love to model ice cream, and anything shiny.” Anyone care for a scoop, fellas?
This 27-year-old aspiring performer and pinup model counts two classic blonde bombshells among her idols: “May West for her insatiable appetite for men and Marilyn Monroe for her classic, sex-kitten beauty with a touch of innocence,” explains Kimberly. “I try to portray a combination of both women and add my own personality in my pictures and on stage,” she says. When not posing for the camera or shimmying her way through a steamy dance routine, Kimberly enjoys horror flicks and consuming men. We love a woman with a healthy appetite!
Originally from New Jersey, this 23-year-old bombshell was actually raised in South Florida. Janet is not only new to pinup modeling, but is also working on starting a rockabilly band. “Growing up with a mother that was completely in love with anything from the 1940s and ’50s has taught me to walk in mommy’s footsteps,” says Janet. “She taught me how to sew, which got me to get into fashion design. I guess I’m kinda a momma’s girl, but don’t let that fool you. I’m a tough broad if need be.” Watch out, fellas, this little dame’s a firecracker!
