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!
Since she was a little girl, 29-year-old Lady Di has loved the historic past, including the Medieval, Victorian, and mid-20th Century time periods. Says Diana, “As a younger girl, I traveled to many historic smaller towns here in Ontario, where I visited many antique and vintage shops. I was always amazed with the stories that came along with the historic pieces and adored viewing various old pin-up postcards and memorabilia.” She also enjoys classic films featuring such iconic bombshells as Rita Hayworth and Marilyn Monroe. “I was enamored watching these vixens and from that moment on, I knew I’d always strive to be a classy dame.” She feeds her passion for the past with stockings, high heels, corsets, elegant jewelry, and red lipstick. This sizzling pinup import is all girl through and through!
