June Pinup of the Month – Zoe Scarlett

Zoe Scarlett, Pinup, hot rod pin up
I first bumped into Ms. Zoe Scarlett while looking for a great hot rod pinup picture to use for the very first MyRideisMe.com flier ever made. Graphic artist and Photographer Dirk Behlau kindly let the tiny web start-up use his image. That black hot rod with stunning blond featured Zoe Scarlett who is now the June Pinup of the Month.

* How’d you become a pinup? Is pinup big in Switzerland?

I took my first pin-up pictures in my boyfriend’s garage on a very cold day in January. I wanted to surprise him with some cute pictures when he returned from his holiday. I never thought that this would be my future career! At the same time, Switzerland’s most famous newspaper, BLICK, advertised a contest called ‘the cutest neighbor’.

I spontaneously decided to take part in the contest and sent in the pictures I’d made for my boyfriend. Two days later, there was a huge picture of me on the cover of Switzerland’s BLICK! Well, that was the beginning of my pin-up modeling career!

* What’s your favorite pinup picture ever?

The first shooting with Dirk Behlau in Hockenheim, where I was wearing a with dress and I was in front of a red 32 pick up was great, I also appreciated my first beach shooting with Ama Lea in L.A. I also liked working with animals for my calendar. It was fascinating to work with a leopard, spider snakes, camels and others.

* Are you into cars and the pinup “culture” or is it just a job?

My passion for the 1950′s lifestyle and classic cars began at a very young age. As a child, I was taken to flea markets, car shows and races with my family. I spent a lot of my spare time at my Dad’s Speed Shop. My mom is a passionate 50′s furniture and accessory collector and my older brother lives in Florida and works as a mechanic for a Racing Team. So I was kind of born in to it.

* What’s a funny thing about you that nobody’d ever guess???

I use to be a mechanic in a drag race team for about 2 years. We traveled around Europe whit a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air the team was called Roofers Toy ;)

* What are you working on now?

As a pinup model I represent premium brands. As a example for the world-brand  “Cynar” (Campari Gruppo), I started an exclusive burlesque-show called the Cynarina. With an erotic, glamorous and stirring mixture of vaudeville, show and musical I put a spell on my audience. In an oversized “Cynar-glass” I perform the art of burlesque in perfection.
