(Re)introducing one of my favorite pin-ups of the 1960s – the one and only Michelle Angelo!
Michelle Angelo is one of the more recognizable pinup models of her era, partially because of the sheer quantity of photos she posed for, but also for her pretty ‘everyday girl’ looks and unique ‘characteristics’ – namely a pair of gorgeous, bouyant breasts topped off by two unusually large round nipples. Having an otherwise fantastic body did not hurt either.
She was born in Kingman, Texas in 1945. In 1966, a 21-year-old Michelle Angelo embarked on her dancing and modeling career in Los Angeles, often doing one or two photoshoots per day and performing at nightspots such as the famous Whisky-A-Go-Go. She appeared well over 500 magazine sets and countless nudie peepshow reels, going by both her Michelle Angelo name and the pseudonyms Janet Angel and Angie Duncan.
She also found time to act in several sexploitation movies of the time, including Street of a Thousand Pleasures, Marked For Love, Nymphs Anonymous, etc. Many of the photos and films she was featured in could be called “hippiesploitation”, cashing in on the West Coast counterculture of the late 60s – think acid-trip-meets-go-go-dancing-girl-next-door. Most famous of these is the Playboy shot of Michelle clad only in psychedelic body paint, from the March 1968 issue.
Just two short years after her start she retired from the modeling scene (though still appeared in a few films). She remained under the radar for decades but in recent years has popped up again attending pinup conventions and the like, by all accounts an extremely down-to-earth and gracious lady. And my lord, what tits…
More Michelle Angelo (including some great film reels featuring her!) can be found at Delta of Venus Vintage Erotica…

Ahh, Michelle Angelo, nearly nude if not for the panties and stockings.
Classic 1960s pinup, somewhere between girl-next-door and voluptuous vixen and possessing some of the most memorable natural breasts the world has known, one of my favorites (and I think that sentiment is shared by many). I’ll probably be doing a more detailed write-up and gallery of her in the future, but for now enjoy this shot courtesy of the vintage erotica archives at Delta of Venus.
