Bettie Page has died and the world has lost a true icon!

December 12, 2008

(ChattahBox) —  Bettie Page, the iconic 1950s pinup model has died and went off to heaven today at the age of 85. Her controversial photographs in skimpy attire or none at all helped set the stage for the 1960s sexual revolution. Her agent, Mark Roesler, said that she passed away this evening at a hospital in Los Angeles after suffering a heart attack over a week ago which left her in a coma.  Mark wrote this message on Bettie’s website:

With deep personal sadness I must announce that my dear friend and client Bettie Page passed away at 6:41pm PST this evening in a Los Angles hospital. She died peacefully but had never regained consciousness after suffering a heart attack nine days ago.

She captured the imagination of a generation of men and women with her free spirit and unabashed sensuality. She is the embodiment of beauty.

Rest in peace, Bettie Page, the world is a little less beautiful and glamorous without you!
