Vintage Nude Models: New Age Part 1

You know where this is going so let's get right into it.

I have always had a fascination with nude models, any era really, just the prior to the 2000s, I always found that a lot of the women I've had a long held interest in just had a certain beauty unique to them entirely.

Pam Grier

If you told me you didn't think she was hot, I'd absolutely believe you're lying.

Anyway, Pamela Suzette Grier is an American actress. She became known in the early 1970s for starring in a string of women in prison and blaxploitation films like The Big Bird Cage, Coffy, Foxy Brown and Sheba Baby.

Gwen Wong

Born into a family of entertainers, April 1967 Playmate Gwen Wong, decided early on that show-business wasn’t for her. However, that didn’t stop the boxum brunette from doning bunny ears and serving drinks to the hottest celebrities in Los Angeles.

Jeannie Bell

A year after appearing as Playmate of the Month, Jean became the first African American woman to grace the magazine’s cover. Modelling was not the first career choice for Miss October however, who was also avidly interesting in professional bowling (her record score was 245).

Who are you favorite models you grew up fantasizing about? Of course, many of these ladies had their prime well before I was even a thought, but it doesn't prevent me from appreciating their beauty in a world run rampant with photoshop and over-editing. I hope you've enjoyed my little blast from the past - I certainly enjoyed writing it.
