Cheese Cake, Pinups and Starlets so is there a difference?
These ladies have the common thread of using their good looks to further their careers. The difference is at least for our discussion here is how we primarily remember them, and what were their goals.
Starlets posed for pictures to increase their popularity and at the request of the studios to increase attention to the films they were acting in.
Pinups these ladies mad a living posing for magazines or photo studies, the amount of clothes they took off depended upon the morals of the time.
Cheese Cake photo's were a style; bikini shots, lingerie and partial clothing. Often young ladies would start with cheese cake as they started out, just to get seen by the people.
