Pinup on the Plains

Posted: Updated:


A special art exhibit opened up at the Plains Art Museum Friday night, but only for a few hours. The photographs on the walls were not your average landscapes. They're all pictures of local women getting "all done up" for Pinup On The Plains.

It's no coincidence that everyone there happened to be a woman. It's a ladies-only event, and all those beautiful girls were celebrating being female.


"It's kind of just showing women, how they can just transform themselves, with just even hair and makeup," says Cally Fredrickson, one of the night's makeup artists.

Local photographer Yvonne Denault created this event to showcase her pinup photography of your average women looking good. With the help of talented makeup artists like Cally.

"You might look like an average person, but as soon as you get behind the camera, you can just be made up to look like a celebrity," Cally says.

Their mission is to help every woman see her true potential and beauty by something as simple as a photograph. The pictures are really all about self esteem.

"I've had so many women who are so nervous when they are getting in the chair, and by the time they come back for their second shoot they say it's not only for their husband, but it made them feel so empowered and beautiful."

Making this night much more than just a girls night out.
