Thanks for the memories, Bettie

The Queen of the Pinups has died. She was 85.

LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- Legendary pinup queen Bettie Page died at the age of 85 in a Los Angeles, California, hospital Thursday according to her agent.

"She captured the imagination of a generation of men and women with her free spirit and unabashed sensuality," said agent Mark Roesler in a written statement. "She is the embodiment of beauty."

Page, said to be one of the most photographed people of the past century, became a recluse in recent decades. Yet, her images continued to be used around the world to market Bettie Page action figures, clothing lines and other merchandise.

A TVGuide.com poll recently placed Bettie Page as the "ultimate sex goddess," outscoring others such as Marilyn Monroe.

I've always been a big Bettie Page fan, and pin up fan in general. Thanks for the beautiful images Bettie. ;-D
