The Ten Cutest Pin-Up Girls at Pinned Miami
Far from the reaches of the urban music chaos, there triumphed another festival last weekend, one new to the city: Pinned Miami. Buxom broads and soldier boys jived their way over to the three-day event to remember the good 'ole days when Coke was just a nickel and curly-cord land-lines were still very much alive and kickin'. The festival, paying homage to the style of rockabilly, pin up, vintage, burlesque, and tattoos, also brought forth a clamor of local vintage boutiques, make-up and hair parlors, and of course, some handsome chariots fit for any respectable T-Bird.

As peachy as all the old-school memorabilia was to gaze and marvel over, there were other aspects of the festival that provoked major involuntary droolage: the pin-up babes. Tatted rockabilly babes; pin-curled babes; pedal-pushin' babes; and high waisted everything babes. From all different shapes and sizes, the ladies put their best Mary Jane forward and came dolled up in some pretty spectacular polka-dotted sheath and swing dresses abound.
Due to the hardcore dedication of these dames getting into character, it was hard to whittle our list of best dressed down to just ten. Ladies, we salute you!
Marilyn Monroe stereotypes of being curvaceous and busty usually come to mind when thinking about the quintessential pin-up gal. But the truth is, pin-up gals come in all shapes and sizes. Take the rock-hard Miss Dahlia Rouge who flaunted a six-pack (well, three of which we can actually see), and hailed all the way from Tampa. Now, if only she had a red polka-dot handkerchief tied up around her perfect victory roll and flexed those guns of hers, while uttering the words "You can do it," she would have been the event's very own propaganda.
9. "Flirt with Disaster"
Don't be deceived by the sweet likes of that strawberry milkshake she's sippin' on. This curled-up cutie has a wild side to her and a certain proclivity for body art. "I only have seven," snickers Ana Maria Kiss about her tats. "This one says 'Flirt With Disaster'," she points down to her foot. But we predict by next year, the seemingly innocent dolly in the haltered swing dress, will have much more to add to her tally: "I would say I get two to three a year."
