Bettie Page Nudes – Gallery 1

A cult figure, Ms. Page was most famous for the estimated 20,000 4-by-5-inch black-and-white glossy photographs taken by amateur shutterbugs from 1949 to 1957. The photos showed her in high heels and bikinis or negligees, bondage apparel, or nothing at all.

Decades later, those images inspired biographies, comic books, fan clubs, websites, and commercial products – Bettie Page playing cards, dress-up magnet sets, action figures, Zippo lighters, shot glasses – and, in 2005, a film about her life and times, “The Notorious Bettie Page.”

Then there are the idealized portraits of her naughty personas – Nurse Bettie, Jungle Bettie, Voodoo Bettie, Banned in Boston Bettie, Maid Bettie, Crackers in Bed Bettie – memorialized by artists.

“The origins of what captures the imagination and creates a particular celebrity are sometimes difficult to define,” Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner said Thursday night. “Bettie Page was one of Playboy magazine’s early playmates, and she became an iconic figure, influencing notions of beauty and fashion. Then she disappeared. . . . Many years later, Bettie resurfaced, and we became friends.”
