The Notorious Betty Page Dies

Iconic pin-up girl Betty Page has died at the age of 85. The legendary model died Thursday night in Los Angeles after suffering a heart attack on December 2nd.

Betty became a cult figure after posing for nearly 20,000 4-by-5-inch black-and-white glossy photographs taken by amateur photographers between 1949 and 1957. In those photos she appeared in bikinis, bodices, bondage gear or nude. Her overt sexuality helped usher in the sexual revolution of the 1960s.

Hugh Hefner, the founder of Playboy, paid tribute to her saying "Bettie Page was one of Playboy magazine's early Playmates, and she became an iconic figure, influencing notions of beauty and fashion…. Her passing is very sad."

Later in life Page turned to Christianity and led a reclusive life. She spent time in a mental institution and when released was puzzled by her cult status. In a rare recent interview she acknowledged her pin-up days saying “I want to be remembered as the woman who changed people's perspectives concerning nudity in its natural form." She certainly did.

Betty Page will be missed but her legacy and iconic image will always live on.
