Die legendäre Bettie Page verstarb gestern im Alter von 85 Jahren an den Folgen einer Herzattacke. Sie war neben Marylin Monroe wohl die Pinup-Ikone schlechthin und Wegbereiterin der sexuellen Revolution. Danke dafür, Bettie!
"She captured the imagination of a generation of men and women with her free spirit and unabashed sensuality," Roesler said. "She is the embodiment of beauty."
Page, who was also known as Betty, attracted national attention with magazine photographs of her sensuous figure in bikinis and see-through lingerie that were quickly tacked up on walls in military barracks, garages and elsewhere, where they remained for years.
Her photos included a centerfold in the January 1955 issue of then-fledgling Playboy magazine, as well as controversial sadomasochistic poses.
