Just what is Pinup?
Simply speaking a pinup is a picture, usually of a female, that appeals to 'popular culture' and which is 'pinned up' somewhere, like a wall or locker door. The word 'pinup' entered popular language during World War II which is when commercial pinup posters started being produced but men have been sticking up pictures of sexy women since the late 1800s. It was particularly popular amongst British Forces during World War I, when the craze was for collecting and pinning up publicity postcards of actresses, singers and models of the day.
Today, pinup tends largely, to fall into two cateogories, there is 'modern' pinup which covers todays 'lad mags' and page 3 and the like, which tends to be more overtly sexual than 'retro' pinup which usually recreates a vintage style, 'cheescake' and which tends to portray a slightly innocent, but fun and sexy style, perhaps showing a flash of stocking top or underwear, rather than being too blatant. True 'Vintage' pinup covering the sale of original vintage prints and posters is also very popular at the moment with the strong interest in all things vintage.
So what is a Pin Up Model?
Simple, a girl who can look stunning and sexy in a photograph, and our models are all experienced pin up models, they know how to adopt a pin up pose, which is very different from conventional fashion. Many of them love vintage and pin up fashion and 'live' with the 'look' every day. Our girls don't fit into any simple single category, we have all shapes and sizes, we have professional catwalk models, burlesque performers, dancers, singers and dedicated pin up models. All though have that certain something and all have a sense of fun.
