"We Are The New Vintage"
Hi Ladies! I'm new here and I want to ask a question I had in my mind since I discovered pin up. I looked some discussions and I didn't find something explaining this, and If this isn't in the right place I'm sorry :(
My question is: Can a black girl be a pin up? A lot of people told me this cannot be possible because every pin up girl has white skin, and the make up they wear is special for that skin.
(And sorry for my bad english)
*ADMIN NOTE: Ladies cool it and keep it civil, educate don't hate. We didn't build this worldwide colorless community for anyone to think they CAN'T be a pinup. It exists to show that ANYONE can and that the style is represented worldwide without boundaries.

OMG YES! Pin-up is a time capsuled look. Just because the advertising of that time only showed "white" women, didn't mean that all colors of the rainbow didn't also look like that. Below is a link to one of my new favorite pin-ups, Miss Angelique Noire!
And a very warm welcome to PL!
OMG who told you that???

Oh sweetie! Being a Pin up is more than the color of your skin or what you look like. There are many of us, myself included, that are "white" or have lighter skin. And yes, it is true that in the OLD days, the pin ups were white. But this is a new era! It's for anyone! You should embrace your skin and your affection for being a pin up! I think it's great when I see girls of all shapes and sizes and colors being a pin up doll!
Do you! Don't get discouraged just because the majority has lighter skin. You have a family of pin ups to back you back!
Woah Woah Woah .....first of all a Black Girl can be ANYTHING she wants I wear pinup style makeup EVERYDAY and not to toot my own horn but I think I look damn good in it. Don't ever let ANYONE tell you, you can't do anything whether you're black, white, orange, green. Whoever told you that is for one CLEARLY RACIST ..and extremely ignorant I'm surprised you actually listened to that person.
Have you looked a photos of Billie Holiday and other great african american singers/actress of the period they had great pin-up style! You go girl, pin up is a celebration of the female form, be the most pin-up version of you that you can be! ;) Hugs from me!
