Medellin, Colombia's Dorados Rockabilly Trio wrote a song about the iconic pinup, Bettie Page. Check it out!
Bettie Page continues to be a style icon years after her death. According to The New York Times, women are bringing back this sweet, yet sexy look.
"More siren than sylph, those women derive a sense of chic, and an unexpected emotional comfort, from reinventing themselves as contemporary incarnations of Ms. Page, or as modern-day retro-vixens like Katy Perry or Lana Del Rey, who have elevated the all-American calendar girl to an emblem of hip femininity."

March 27, 2012 -The world premiere of Bettie Page Revels All, directed by Academy Award nominee documentarian Mark Mori, will take place during the Viva Las Vegas Film Festival at Century Orleans 18 Theater April 5 thru 8.
This exclusive film, narrated by the late pinup queen and co-produced by Mark Roesler with the participation of CMG and Bettie Page LLC, is an intimate look at the rise and fall and rise of one of the world's most recognized and controversial sex symbols.
With her razor sharp wit and Tennessee twang Bettie Page emerges from decades of seclusion to reveal her secret past. In this inside story of the world's greatest pinup model, Bettie Page herself recounts how her unabashed sexual expression and sexually provocative fetish poses set the stage for the 1960s sexual revolution and ushered in a new era in fashion.
The film features interviews by Hugh Hefner, Dita Von Teese, Bunny Yeager, Paula Klaw; with appearances by Rebecca Romijn, Tricia Helfer, Tempest Storm, Sam Menning and Joey Arias, including Bettie Page photographers, ex-husband Harry Lear, ex-boyfriends, auto designer Richard Arbib, and U.S. Brig. Gen. Charles West.
"Bettie Page's joyous free spirit, as seen in her photos and as I discovered in my conversations with her, influence two generations of women all over the world, including pop music icons like Katy Perry, Beyonce and Madonna as well as fashion designers, artists and filmmakers. This inspired me to make this film and bring her joie de vivre to a wider audience. I feel honored to bring Bettie's own statement about her life and who she is to the world," says Mark Mori, Film Director, Bettie Page Reveals All.
The film also features unpublished photos and film of Bettie Page including new information and documents from her FBI files obtained through the Freedom of Information Act. In addition, the film uncovers documents from the 1955 Kefauver hearings on pornography and crime, which had been sealed for 50 years.
"In the past three decades of representing the greatest legends of the 20th century, there has never been or will be another woman like Bettie Page. Bettie Page's burgeoning commercial success includes eight Bettie Page stores and lifestyle lines like clothing, lingerie, shoes, swimwear, fragrance and various gift items," says Mark Roesler, CMG CEO and Bettie Page's licensing representative.
