bettie page dies at the age of 85 from heart attack

Bettie Page Died

Vintage 1950's pin-up model Bettie Page died Thursday night due to a heart attack she suffered earlier this month. She was 85.

Bettie Page, the brunet pinup queen with a shoulder-length pageboy hairdo and kitschy bangs whose saucy photos helped usher in the sexual revolution of the 1960s, has died. She was 85.

Page, whose later life was marked by depression, violent mood swings and several years in a state mental institution, died Thursday night at Kindred Hospital in Los Angeles, where she had been on life support since suffering a heart attack Dec. 2, according to her agent, Mark Roesler.

The start of many trends and a sex appeal beyond her time will be truly missed.
