 Bella Valentine                                          Photo by: Chandler Sargent   Hi, my name is Belle La Valentine and I love everything about the vintage lifestyle.  From music to dresses to cars, and of course pin up... I love it all. I have always adored listening to my parents tell me their stories from the 50’s and 60’s and looking at pictures of my Mom who was also into pinup and my Dad’s cool cars. I have a husband and two sons and they also share my passion for collecting vintage items and listening to great music. And my most favorite thing about getting to be a modern day pin up is getting to be a part of this great community of ladies who are so inspiring, I love that it’s not about size, age or race. I’ve made so many amazing friends and they encourage me every day, it’s with this amazing pin up family that I know I can do this.

  Raquel Ravish                             Photo A Freeman                                        Raquel Ravish is a model who takes pride in staying true to the classic pinup look. As a teenager, she found herself drawn to the work of famously talented artists such as Gil Elvgren, Rolf Armstrong, George Petty, Peter Driben, Enoch Bolles, Earl Moran, Zoe Mozart, Alberto Vargas, and so many more! She felt the women in the artwork had an air of eternal class, strong sophistication, and oozing sexiness that could not be found or matched in current society. They had a tasteful balance of naughty and nice and she knew she wanted to embrace these same qualities. She had to learn to become her own version of what she felt was beautiful. Today Raquel can be found in both nationally and internationally published magazines, calendars, and books embodying the everlasting spirit of the ravishing women who inspired her so much as a young girl. She continues to draw inspiration from muses of the past and looks forward to leaving her own impression on the world.

  Lavender Lou LaRue - Potential     Photo by Charlie Rose Photography  Lavender is a born and raised Southern California girl through and through, and can’t see herself living anywhere other than California.   Lavender mixes her love of alternative subcultures, such as goth, metal and industrial with her love of Pinup. She aptly calls herself an alt Pinup and/or goth Pinup. She was published in her first Pinup magazine in 2017, though she has gone to car shows and been a part of Kustom Kulture since 2003.   Being single mother of a beautiful little girl she tries her hardest to be a role model and show her daughter that women are beautiful no matter their ethnicity, weight or other physical attributes.  Lavender loves doing pageants, photo shoots and other events to help people see the diverse and colorful world that is the pinup community. Not only that she likes to think that by putting herself out there, it not only benefits her child and self, but also helps other young women of color see that they are beautiful just the way they are and they too can live the pinup lifestyle because it is and can be for any and everyone.
