This famous picture of what seems like a slightly envious Sophia Loren is taken from “Vintage Sexy Celebrities” a blog that feature, you’ve guessed it sexy pictures of vintage celebrities.

The owners description of his blog: “Erotica has in many forms been around for centuries. Once a art form, now lost. Erotic photography is an art form in that accentuates the beauty and eroticism of the body. This is the story of erotica from vintage 1860′s to classic retro of the 1960′s-1970′s. Classic pinup models,vintage postcards,and just good free fun.” – Join in the fun here
One of my favourite sites over the last 6 – 7 years are “RetroCrush”
It is not a blog, but a real website, which is becoming rarer and rarer these days.
“RetroCrush” feature interviews, articles on retro and vintage oriented stuff, a forum that I admitt could have been more active (why don’t you join in and help getting it back to it’s former glory) and last but not least a fabelous gallery of retrobabes. And that’s where you’ll find images of the beautiful Jamie Lee Curtis
Two new online galleries uploaded, 40 colour images in each. Classic men’s magazine models showing what fills out their sweaters if they had worn any.
Warning: Some nudity must be expected, but all done in the best possible taste of course.
Got a limit on thousand images on the new galley site, so there’s still a lot to go on so here are to more:
And since I suspect that it will become quite a lot of these galleries in time to come, I have made a page in the “Image Galleries” section where I’ll keep a list of all online galleries: It is here
My French is more than a little rusty so you’ll have to transelate this on your own, but here is the intro to “Pinupmania” – Découvrez les grands illustrateurs de Pin Up, mais aussi Betty Page, Dita von Teese et bien d’autres. Rien que pour le plaisir des yeux. Si vous en voulez encore, faites un détour par mon autre site aux mille Pin Up
In the back pages of various men’s magazines during the 1950′s and 60′s you would see countless ads for 8 mm loops or photo sets that would come to you door in plain brown envelopes. These were the sets that were more daring and leaned more toward S&M and fetish shots. One of the best known photographer and distributor of these kinds of photos was Irving Klaw.
Tamer than his out-and-out bondage photos, this persona had just enough female domination to satisfy those who were tired of the run-of-the-mill blonde bombshell. Redhead Jackie Miller, with her impressive 5′ 11” 40-26-38 figure, fit Klaw’s fetish role perfectly. She could give you a charming smile one minute, and the next hit you with a coquettish pout.
Before her work with Klaw, Miller was a showgirl in the Miami area and did modeling for the one-and-only Bunny Yeager. With Yeager you get models posed on sunlit beaches, with Klaw you get them on couches inside New York studios. Like Bettie Page, Miller was able to transition easily between these two worlds for a while, but as her career progressed, Miller wound up posing for more of the Klaw-esque indoor fetish shots. In all probability, Miller was another victim of pin-up model typecasting. Just like an actor who plays their role too well, Miller just looked too good in impossible heels and corsets.
