This collection of over 250 contemporary retro-style cheesecake, glamour, and hot rod pinup photographs by Northern California artist Marilee Caruso takes women from all backgrounds and transforms them into the classy yet stimulating bombshells of our parents' and grandparents' day. Inspired by icons such as Marilyn Monroe, Bettie Page, or Sophia Loren, each portrait provides a nostalgic glance into the mood, style, and sex appeal of the 1930s, '40s, '50s, and '60s era pin-up girl. From black and white Hollywood starlets to greasy hot rod honeys, this bevy of gorgeous gals has been revamped with vintage hair and makeup, wardrobe, and posing. Shot with high-quality digital technology of the 21st century, each image is reminiscent of the drawings of Gil Elvgrin and Alberto Vargas.
