Vintage Smut

Hello followers! 
So when me, Harriett and Jessica were in Berlin we found a collection of old raunchy magazines in a flea market. I thought I'd share the one with you that I found.


Here's gorgeous Jane Russell on the front cover. I have to say I picked the magazine primarily on the fact that Jane Russell is the feature. She has to be my favourite pin up and I was so sad when she died a few months ago.


Lovely Anne Baxter on the back who featured in 'All About Eve' with my favourite actress Bette Davis.
















I choose to leave out most of the nudey pictures out of the blogpost, not because the photos were distasteful. But purely because most of nude pictures are irreverent to a clothing blog. But I did want to leave in this photograph to demonstrate how much the ideals of beauty have changed.



On another note here's a old painting that I also found at another Berlin flea market. I hope you've enjoyed the post. 

Love Aimee xx

  5. Oh my, fantastic pictures! I LOVE the title "Atomic Chest" (is that only half the title?) on the Jane Russell piece hahaha! And is it just me, or is that naked lady the spitting image of Katy Perry?
