Betty Grable Style

Betty Grable Style

Betty Grable - with her iconic long, pin up legs and darling smile - is easily one of my favorite Golden Hollywood stars to channel. Betty was more than awesome legs and swoon worthy hair though - she set a record of 12 consecutive years in the top 10 of box office stars. How to Marry a Millionaire - with Marilyn Monroe and Lauren Bacall - is my favorite film of hers! 

She radiated a spunk and sweetness and loved her style. With my shoot with Mark Johnson, I wanted to bring her exuberance to my photos and blog. Her style is legendary and here's some tips and tricks to exude that Grable pin up look.

Betty's pin up victory curls and cute "poodle" hair is still a great, vintage look! Here's some fantastic hair tutorials to get you looking like Ms. Grable:

Overall style

To channel Betty, I put on my favorite vintage inspired bathing suit, kitten heels and made sure to show off my gams in a cute, pin up way! I don't even compare to the late great Gable - but having her confidence and channeling her kittenish smile was important to getting the Betty look down.
