Rest in Peace: Bettie Page

It would be remiss here at Lady Melbourne to not pay tribute to Bettie Page, who died yesterday in California aged 85.
Bettie's legendary look will live on forever for those of us who find inspiration from her raven hair, beautiful curves, pin up photos and of course her photographic work.

The NY Times has a great obituary that talks about her life and work in detail.

We love you Bettie Page!

Indeed rest in peace.
I shocked to log onto tFS and see a tribute to Bettie!
We can all agree on one thing, we'll all remember those wavy black locks of hers.
