Gorgeous Pinups at any Age or Size
Miss Pixie, founder of Miss Pinup Australia, has lived in a time warp so to speak, for the last 30 years. She has reverted back to the 1950's, an era that she believes 'portrayed women at their finest' with magnificent hairstyles, flawless make-up, clothing that was flattering to any body shape or age. Her passion is to women feel classy and elegant. After seeing these photos you will never again wish to be shapeless and skinny.
Her Sydney based business, Boogie Bop Dames instructs women in the art of 1940's/50's hairstyles & make-up as well as good old fashioned deportment and includes vintage glamour/pin-up photography to remind women of all shapes and sizes that they are beautiful.
Miss Pixie is also the instigator of Miss Pin Up Australia. Be very clear - this is not a beauty contest. It is a celebration of Vintage Glamour. Many of the entrants were inexperienced and blossomed through being involved in this event.
If you love vintage clothes and make-up, you will not want to miss this. It is too late to enter this year but you start looking for "THE outfit" and practice make up and hairstyles. Do read the website; there you can meet this year's contestants. The pictures and stories are really heartwarming.
