The Vanities Girls

Vanity Fair has published The Vanities Girls. Since 1992, the magazine’s Vanities section has opened with a full-page portrait of a promising young star. In September 2006, they tweaked the format to feature an up-and-coming actress in a 50s-style pinup shot. These shapely ingénues are on the cusp of fame or have just hit it big; they have names you need to know and faces you won’t have trouble remembering. Here’s a look at some of the bombshells who’ve struck a playful pose in the retro style. These are somewhat reminiscent of the Varga girls or pin up drawings by Gil Elvgren. Aren't they the sweet? You can view the whole collection here.

I LOVE the Vanities Girls. Vanity Fair always takes such fabulous pictures, and for me, Vanities is the highlight of the issue.

There are tons of really cute bathing suits here. I wonder why they don't make these anymore, or are hard to find.
