“I wanted to do something special for the women who serve our country by loving and supporting a military husband,” said Gina Elise, founder of “Pin-Ups for Vets” and the sponsor of the “You Tube” contest which resulted in the four makeover winners. “This was a way to give back to our military wives.”
Jennifer, an Air Force wife, Lislie, a Navy wife and Army veteran herself, Michelle, a Marine’s wife, and Liz, an Army wife, all submitted audition videos about why they wanted to be a pin-up for a day. They each won the full Hollywood treatment of a glamorous photo shoot as classic World War II pin-up girls in photos done specifically with their husbands in mind. The vintage jewelry gifts from Sweet Romance included earrings to match each of the dramatic necklaces: the Red Rose Cameo, Smoke Crystal Octagons, Pearl Vine, and Vamp Wedding necklaces.
