Way way back in the late 1890s, glamour models started having their photographs taken and as a result men the world over would pin these saucy images to their walls, lockers, vehicles you name it – often out of sight. That practice, lead to those girls to be refered to as “pin-ups”.
Pin-ups girls & indeed their performances, sense of style and art have been making a resurgence in pop culture recently. With that in mind here’s 20 classic and stylish Playboy pin-up girls for you to enjoy.
We’ve also showcased a few feature stories dedicated to these ladies who are the perfect combination of class & cheekiness! For example, did you know they use pin-ups girls to sell mobile phones in Russia? Have you checked out J. Scott Campbell’s brilliant series of Disney-esque pin-ups? We also tracked down these stunning 2D oil paintings and who could forget the modern day queen of burlesque and pin-up Dita Von Teese. But best of all? We even managed to get Robert Downey Jnr in on the pin-up action!
