Single Girl: Bettie Page

In 1950, during a walk along the Coney Island shore, Bettie ran into an ex-NYPD officer, Jerry Tibbs. Tibbs offered Bettie a card for his services, which were pin-up model fetish photography. Bettie had always dreamed of being an actress, and while this wasn’t quite what she had in mind, she accepted.

Tibbs took pictures of Bettie and put together her first pinup portfolio. Little did Bettie know how much her life was about to change.

In a matter of months, Bettie’s modeling career had taken off.

Tibbs was the one behind Bettie’s iconic bangs as well!

"[Jerry Tibbs was] the one who got me wearing bangs. For years I had my hair parted down the middle in a ponytail, tucked down around the sides. But he said to me, 'Bettie, you've got a very high forehead. I think you'd look good if you cut some bangs to cover it.' Well, I went and cut the bangs, and I've been wearing them ever since. They say it's my trademark."

When her photographs were published in Robert Harrison’s magazines, Bettie became a pinup star beyond comparison. In 1955, Bettie won the title “Miss Pinup Girl of the World.”

In January 1955, she was the centerfold in Playboy’s January issue. She was even named the “Girl with the Perfect Figure,” with her photographs appearing in everything from record albums to playing cards.

Bettie Page was dubbed the Queen of Pin Up and often seen as having the “perfect figure.” She was unafraid to show her full body and wasn't afraid of being sexualized. She was the queen of pin-up and helped to create a movement for women to express themselves through their sexuality.

While other women in the 1950s were playing coy and hiding their bodies, Bettie was celebrating hers. Bettie showed that it was okay to be different, and that it was okay to be sexy.

Bettie helped to change the way women were viewed in society, and paved the way for future generations of women to be comfortable in their own skin.
