Pinup Girls. There is quite possibly nothing as classic and glamorous even by today's standards.
These playful girls defined beauty in the forties, and are still the epitome of femininity, inspiring style mavens like Megan Fox, Christina Aguilera, and Dita von Teese.
The influence of this iconic style is flashed every time you give your eyeliner a little wing at the outer corner or paint on a bold red lip.
But there is more to harnessing the essence of pin-up than polka dots and perfectly coiffed victory rolls – it’s a state of mind.
A retro beauty is self-confident and sexy without showing too much. She knows all about the art of the flirt and the tease but is careful about who actually gets to witness the reveal.
And yes, she can shake her pin curls and bat her false lashes in a way that still enchants those around her.
