Bettie Page appeared in the January 1955 issue as Playmate of the Month, nude except for a Santa hat. She did not pose for Playboy per se -- the fledgling magazine bought an existing shot from photographer Bunny Yeager. Bettie's pictures made a number of subsequent appearances in Playboy, and Hugh Hefner has said that Bettie is one of his favorite Playmates of all time. "She had a saucy innocence that is both contemporary and provocative, and also nostalgic," he says. (Paragraph found here)
As stated in my 1st post, Bettie is now a "born again Christian," and in keeping an honest and respectful approach, (no nudity or very little on this blog) out of respect for her -- I have only posted her head shot
: ) Merry Christmas!
