Thats the picture being presented by photographer Lori Mann, who says more women than ever are asking for sessions where they dress up in the classic Bettie Page look: black lingerie, stilettos, whips and retro-cool vintage hair-dos, replete with her signature black bangs.
She says that, Page is the pinup its cool to worship now. Shes got that classic innocence but with rockabilly style.
Still, Mann says many younger fans of the look dont even know the icon who is influencing their photo shoots.
Mann says she expects another sharp spike in requests for the Page look once the upcoming movie The Notorious Bettie Page gets wider release.
