Note from Gaius Luminos — Designer, Founder and Owner of Chichi of London:
During World War II pin up pictures of scantily clad movie stars were extremely popular among US servicemen. Whether it was a painted calendar, advertisement, or the photo pin ups that the G.I.s pinned on their locker doors, and which later adorned the noses of their bomber planes in WW2.
Pin up art continued to grow in popularity, and sophistication through the 1950s. Movies were made about pin up artists and models, and most actresses of the time were considered pin ups first then actresses. Marilyn Monroe was Earl Morans’ favorite model before and after she became a movie star. Numerous celebrities posed for pin up and glamour artists.
Playboy was instrumental in changing the world of glamour photography as the first magazine that both focused on nude models and targeted the mainstream consumer. In December 1953, Hugh Hefner published the first edition of Playboy with Marilyn Monroe on the cover and nude photos of Monroe inside.
After Playboy broke through, many magazines followed and this was instrumental in opening the market for the introduction of glamour photography into modern society.
