Thursday: Post 4 of 6 – Kulturschlag

Betty Brosmer displaying the curves that made her the most famous pin-up model in the 1950’s. She clearly did not have a problem showing knickers lines. Maybe that’s sexy to some people. Is it?
Betty was huge in her day, a pin-up superstar! She was in thousands of magazine spreads, her face appeared on full-page ads in many leading magazines of her day and she won over 50 beauty contests before the age of 20 as well as appearing on hundreds of calendars and numerous music album covers and on billboards in Times Square and billboards across the USA.
Betty was the first model to receive residuals every time her picture was published and  was one of the first models to own the rights to many of her negatives and photos as well as being  the highest paid model of that time period. Betty was the first true Super Model.
Betty Trivia: Every time you see a green tree hanging in car, think of Betty.  It was her effervescent smile on display cards that started that trend and made these tree air fresheners famous throughout the world.
