Rockabilly—Goth—Vintage—Burlesque--Pinup.

It’s a path we’ve heard outlined many times over in The Fedora Lounge forums. The 21st century explosion of mid-20th century pinup style can easily be seen via several social media platforms, most notably Instagram.

The sheer effort in creating hairstyles, makeup and perfectly put together vintage outfits is remarkable. The most successful have gathered tens of thousands of avid followers, and numerous vintage dealers have caught on, modeling inventory for eager buyers. One often sees a “this fabulous dress” for sale quickly followed by a “sold!” tag within the hour.

Pinup is serious business.


Here are five popular Instagram pinup models you can follow today. (We have no personal connection to any of them. All photos are the property of the respective accounts listed)
