While I fancy the '70s, there's another kind of modern vintage that's become trendy of late. If you're familiar with images anywhere between the 1930s and 1960s featuring pictures of sexy and attractive women usually seen in advertisements, then you can imagine the beauty of these lovely ladies. There's been a recent resurfacing of pin-up girl images. Even more so is stylizing women of today's ilk to resemble vintage pin-up girls. This blog post is all about pin-up beauty.

If You are a Pin-Up Girl Yourself...

Hi! :) Hope you enjoyed my blog post on pin-up girls and pin-up girl style!

--- Pin-Up Girls at a Glance ---

If one recent celebrity has made pin-up cool, it's no one other than Katy Perry:

Katy Perry pin-up
^ from: - Katy Perry can be thought of as a modern pin-up girl with her 1960s-type fashion influences. Here, she wears very high-waist shorts and a cropped top.

Katy Perry represents all that makes the vintage pin-up girl sexy and attractive with luscious legs, her high-waist style, and that vintage pin-up girl charm. Those who overly complain of too many young starlets who show off their navel and breasts, her style is different (and it's not to say that I have no problem with any midriff-baring or scantily clad femmes). Relevant to this topic, her style is purely vintage pin-up girl as she works it very well. From the above picture, she shows midriff, but in a vintage way with high-waist pants. I did my own blog entry on the high-waist. Please visit my Fashion and Style posts to find it.

IN CASE YOU'RE INTERESTED: I blogged about Katy Perry here on John's Blog Space. Please take a look at "Katy Perry" on John's Blog Space to read my post on Katy Perry.

--- How to Get Started With Pin-Up Girl Style ---

Forget the latest styling trends. If you can work some vintage style from fashion to posing as a vintage pin-up girl, then you can let your vintage beauty shine. A web site I recommend you visiting to unleash your pin-up babe is Learn to draw some inspiration from the model pictures. I'm also thinking that having a lovely enough silhouette to properly rock pin-up chic makes the pin-up look come alive even more.

I mentioned Heidi Van Horne earlier. Here's a quick picture of her:

She's the first pin-up girl I've ever met. This video below (read the disclaimer to this video first) is a video example of a pin-up girl. But not just any pin-up girl... it's Heidi Van Horne! :)

Here is a picture of myself with Heidi Van Horne (all credit goes to the Houston Chronicle):

I'm not crazy about pin-up girl chic, but it's very cool to check out if you're looking to go vintage.
