Update On Previous Bettie Page Post: The “Embodiment Of Beauty” Has Passed Away!

The raven-haired beauty who cause quite an uproar in the 1950’s has passed away! Bettie Page died yesterday. I did an earlier post on this remarkable pin-up sensation who continues to influence women to this day. She really represented corporeal feminism. Here’s more from BBC News:

“Her provocative poses – often in bikinis – made her a cult figure and she was one of the first models to appear in Playboy magazine.

She “captured the imagination of a generation with her free spirit and unabashed sensuality“, her agent said.

Bettie Page was credited with helping to pave the way for the sexual revolution of the 1960s.

The secretary-turned-model was admitted to hospital last month, suffering from pneumonia. She had a heart attack last week and never regained consciousness.”(End of Excerpt) To read the rest,go here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/7778963.stm
