Bettie Page Burlesque Gifs

The iconic Bettie Page is also known as the ‘Queen of Pin-ups’. She was an influential pin up model and even posed nude. Yet, she never appeared in explicit sexual scenes. What a tease!

Luckily for us, Bettie Page was no stranger to the world of burlesque dancing. One of our favourite duets EVER saw her team up with burlesque legend, Tempest Storm for an assisted strip in Teaserama.

Her unforgettable Bettie Page hairstyle is the epitome of having a gimmick. You can still see her influence in both the pin up and burlesque industries. Whether it’s Dita Von Teese’s shoe collection, Loulou D’vil’s tattoo or Bernie Dexter‘s …everything, Bettie Page has left her mark as an idol. And we can see why.

Bettie Page style

Queen of Pin-ups, the notorious Bettie Page, is a prime example of why, as they say, you’ve got to have a gimmick. Her iconic Bettie Page bangs alone are reason enough to idolise this woman’s style.

Talking about how her hairstyle came about, she said;

“For years I had my hair parted down the middle in a ponytail, tucked down around the sides… Well, I went and cut the bangs, and I’ve been wearing them ever since. They say it’s my trademark.”

As one of the first women to be Playmate of the Month in the January 1955 Playboy issue and an influential pin up model, Bettie Page posed nude but never appeared in explicit sexual scenes.

She was also no stranger to burlesque. See Bettie Page assist burlesque legend, Tempest Storm, in Teaserama for a reverse strip, as her sultry maid:

Bettie Page – Style Icon

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

The style Bettie embodied has become iconic – and now a regular staple of pop culture with everyone from Madonna, Beyonce and Katy Perry having paid tribute to the iconic bangs and bullet bras. However, Bettie admitted…

I don’t know what they mean by an icon. I never thought of myself as being that. It seems strange to me. I was just modeling, thinking of as many different poses as possible.”

Bettie Page and Cheesecake

Bettie Page has also become influential for cheesecake photos. British cheesecake burlesque dancer, Anna Fur Laxis said, “I don’t think it would surprise anyone who knows me if I say that my biggest cheesecake inspiration comes from Bettie Page.

I don’t think I’ll ever get bored of looking at photographs and videos of her, she had an incredible energy which comes across even in still photographs and everything she did was infused with a playful edge – even her darkest bondage shots.”
