Everyone loves a good sequel, and I can think of nothing more worthy of a second entry than a gallery of vintage Christmas pinups. In case you missed the first edition, check it out before proceeding. Be of good cheer!
It occurs to me that I've done pinup galleries for Valentine's Day and Halloween, but haven't spread any beautiful Yuletide joy. So here then are 12 lovely ladies from Hollywood to help us usher in the Christmas season!
RIP Anita Ekberg (September 29, 1931 - January 11, 2015)
I don't know the date on this Marilyn Monroe color photograph, but I'm going with late 1940s. Regardless, it's a stunner. The reason I say late '40s is that Marilyn appears to be a little older than when she shot this series of fishing photos in 1946, but she's doesn't look to be in full 1950s glamour mode yet. As I've stated before, this is my favorite era for her. She just looks so happy and full of life.
If you enjoyed my gallery of vintage Hollywood actress Halloween pin-ups, then I'm sure you'll love this Valentine's Day collection too. Be still my beating heart!
Because who doesn't enjoy looking at classic Halloween pin-up photos and beautiful women? The majority of these are from the 1940s and '50s, but some are from earlier. Happy hubba hubba Halloween! (more…)
