The 1960s saw Hugh Hefner opening up his Playboy Clubs across the world. Those hostess showgirls wedged in to satin corsets and sprinkled with bunny ears and bow ties are still seen as one of America’s lasting sex symbols.
Our Playboy blog post, Bunny Girls: British Pathé Go Inside The Playboy Paradise (Never To Return), is the most-read article we have published since setting up the British Pathé blog in 2010 by a substantial margin. We can’t imagine why! When we reblogged the article just a few days ago (see here), more of you visited the page than we imagined. So we thought that given the interest out there, instead of simply republishing one of our golden oldies, that we’d treat you to something new.
Therefore, we proudly present our new VINTAGE BUNNY GIRLS GALLERY. In the gallery you will see shots that we didn’t include in the original blog article (which you can still find via the blog’s home page) as well as links to the films from which they’re taken.
So if you’re bored at work, or simply interested in fashion and cultural history, click THIS LINK to view the gallery.
Or if you aren’t a fan of the gallery format, you can go straight to the films featured within it. Just click on the titles below:
Inside the Playboy Paradise (1966)
Playboy Club Fashion Show (1968)
So watch the films above or visit our gallery in which Pathé take a look back at the girls with cotton tails.
