“Bettie Page: Heaven Bound” is a new tribute exhibit that celebrates the iconic burlesque legend who passed away last year.

As a promotion of the exhibit, celebrities such as Margaret Cho and Perez Hilton were captured by photographer Austin Young while they channeled their inner Bettie.

Implications - The glorious tribute to Bettie Page also features the art of pin-up legends such as Bunny Yeager, Austin Young, Colin Christian and Steve Diet Goedde. The featured images are bright, vivid and very playful. Some of the images are vintage flashbacks that will take you back in time. The exhibit is curated by Lenora Claire and runs May 2nd through May 29 at the World of Wonder Gallery in Hollywood.
