Gallery: Marisa Miller Does Pin-Up Shoot For Veterans

There’s nothing like a good, old-fashioned pin-up girl, and Marisa Miller channels the spirit of 1940s hotties with panache (and ample cleavage) in a recent photo shoot for the USO.

Miller is an ambassador for the organization and told FOX News that, “My grandfather and uncle are veterans, and I am always humbled to see their sacrifice and others’ sacrifice for our daily freedoms…it is so important when I have the opportunity to give back.”

    There is something horrifically wrong with that fourth picture! Around her middle, I can’t describe it, but gah!

    • Sylph

      I agree. It’s terrifying. I hope it’s a horrible photoshop job.

      That waistline in the fourth shot HAS to be photoshopped thinner right?

    • Kj

      I think they stretched her waist or something. I was looking at that too, like, “where do her organs go?! Gah.

      What makes this different from actual vintage pinups, though, is that the vintage ones weren’t, you know, stick thin. Just saying.

    I’m surprised that the Gloss isn’t covering this from a perspective of outrage! To quote Shelby Knox, the 20something feminist activist, “Vintage sexism is still sexism.” (She said this in reference to the NBC show “The Playboy Club,” but it works in this case, too). These photos aren’t funny or ironic or even pleasantly campy–they’re sexist.

      Don’t get your panties in a bunch there miss. When those men went to war in those horrible conditions pin up girl calendars were a nice little distraction. These are hot photos, she’s a hot woman, and I’m sure she’s happy doing this.

    I was thinking about how her body type differed from original pin ups too. The pin-up figure was the body ideal for women then, wasn’t it? What men would, most reliably, enjoy looking at. And while I’m not suggesting that all modern men want to look at is stick thin women, or that they would enjoy pictures with curvier women less – arguably, the slim modelesque frame is currently the ideal beauty status-quo and thus, what men are most used to enjoying to look at. I still reckon that a set photos with curvy pin ups would have been brilliant, and beautiful to look at. I personally wish I could carry it off, but alas, I am lacking in the boobs and hips to make it so.
