Pin-Up V. Rockabilly Week

Pin-Up!



Rockabilly!




We can go back and forth all day on what to properly describe these photographs:



But, let me save you some time.

We all know what Pin-Ups are. Pin-Ups are Covergirls. Plain and simple.

The 1950's ladies were better known by their names, such as
Bettie Page, Brigitte Bardot, Jayne Mansfield, Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor.

Since then, while our beauty standards have changed over the decades,
we have still managed to have our own list of Pin-Ups.

During the 1960's, Sharon Tate, Twiggy, Raquel Welch, Ursula Andress and Ann Margret
were popular Pin-Up Ladies.



During the 1970's, Suzanne Somers, Jaclyn Smith, Liza Minnelli, Farrah Fawcett, and Catherine Bach.



During the 1980's, Heather Locklear, Kim Basinger, Joan Jett and Pat Benatar.



During the 1990's and today,
Pamela Anderson, Nicole Kidman, Jenny McCarthy, Anna Nicole Smith and Dita Von Teese.



Can you see why these lovely ladies became America's Covergirls?

Now, back to what we were talking about...

Rockabilly is a music style.
It is often associated with the burlesque scene - the re-creation of the "Pin-Up".

It is a mixture of rock and roll, country with some blues thrown in.
For example, have you ever seen Cry Baby starring Johnny Depp?

If you have not, you need to!

While both of these fashion/makeup/style trends are similar,
you finally see the difference.

This week we are going to show you both and all in between when it comes to makeup, hair and fashion!

Fashionably Yours,

Meredith
