In the fetish world, it can be argued that few people had more influence then Bettie Page. It’s ironic that until close to her death, she didn’t see it that way and actually had no idea. Luckily for us, and the topic of this blog, she did pose a couple of times in French Maid outfits!
But her style is such that she’s been imitated many, many times. A great Pinup Photographer, Miss Missy, has done a homage to Bettie Page, as have, literally hundreds of other photographers and models.
But the most famous pictures of Bettie Page as a French Maid, never actually happened. Famous pinup artist Olivia De Berardinis‘ biggest muse is the famous Bettie Page. Olivia has made several Bettie Page French Maid pictures in her career. One of my favorites of course, is this wonderful little picture.
I can almost say that these two pictures are what started my interest in French Maids in general.
