The world has lost a true icon! Bettie Page went off to heaven today at the age of 85. Her agent, Mark Roesler, said that she passed away this evening at a hospital in Los Angeles after suffering a heart attack over a week ago which left her in a coma.

Mark wrote this message on Bettie’s website:

With deep personal sadness I must announce that my dear friend and client Bettie Page passed away at 6:41pm PST this evening in a Los Angles hospital. She died peacefully but had never regained consciousness after suffering a heart attack nine days ago.

She captured the imagination of a generation of men and women with her free spirit and unabashed sensuality. She is the embodiment of beauty.

Rest in peace, Bettie Page. The world is a little less beautiful and glamorous without you!

    It’s a sad day. And to think that my coworkers, who are all over 50, didn’t know who she was!

    Pin Up in heaven.

    She looks great for being a 40 year old pic or so. I would believe that picture was taken today in black and white.

    But the part about unbashed sexuality I don’t like.

    I hate seeing females slut them selves up.

    @casemods:
    Ahem. Bettie was never slutty in any way. There’s a difference you see, between women like Bettie who was just very confident, sensual and not afraid to show it. It’s considered classy.
    What you have in mind are the women of today, like Paris Hilton, who don’t believe in anything in particular but just like the attention and are vain.
    Huge difference.

    @dieAntagonista: Agreed. Thank you for clearing that up. But I still hate seeing girls show off anything. I’m a “one-and-only” type of guy I guess. Don’t like my lady showing off for anyone but me! (in the bedroom)

    @casemods: Hah, alright I can’t say anything against that. I do understand where you’re coming from.

    She managed to be totally sexy, yet kept that line between her sexuality and sluttiness or being a “tart”. She never appeared “easy” or promiscuous.

    Oh and RIP Bettie you gorgeous girl.
