Modern pin-up models: What has changed?

Hello everyone!today I wanted to show you some pictures of modern-pin up girls and do discuss what has changed since 50-60`s. It is really interesting to know how the retro style has developed and how is it interpreted nowadays!
Let`s Begin!
First of all, the most interesting feature of modern pin-up models is that they are all tattooed. They have sleeves, the whole back and legs tattooed, and it is quite surprising how different tattoes can be combined with the classic pin-up style. It looks different, but facinating.


The next point is the pircing. Pin-up girls now have a lot of piercings, septums, madonna`s and monroe`s, and sometimes it looks great.

Then the hair. Now a lot of girls dye and bleach them and use the most incredilbe colours. Red is the most popular among them, but you can also see pink, lilac, blue etc. A few models use  thir natural haircolour.
Makeup became much brighter and heavier. Fake eyelashes are videly spread.

Dresses are different too. A lot of girls wear corsets, they are extremely popular. And really high highheels.

Summing up, we can say that the modern pin-up girl is more radical, I mean that her look became much more grotesque and more sexy. What do you think?

  1. I think your absolutely correct. Being a photographer, I automatically think tattoos and piercings when I think pin up. Back I the day, these models were the girls who pushed the envelope of society. It's not so much what they look like, as what they represent.
