This week we have a bring you the fiery fun Irais Portillo. We love the diversity and individuality that pin up modeling has to offer. Irais brings us to scenes from all over…a flare that reminds me of a scene in an Antonio Banderas movie with a burlesque setting, to the corner chop-shop, to a pin up bomber girl era and back to classic glamour.
Bio: I’ve always been fascinated by the whole 40’s & 50’s culture since I can remember. From the automobiles to the controversial rock n’ roll. I wish I could have lived and experienced it all. Currently the husband and I are working on a 1946 Chevy Fleetline Aerosedan. Yup, I’m not afraid to get a little dirty. I love collecting vintage clothes and enjoy hanging out with other pinups and greasers at our usual hang out spots in midtown. It’s a fun spot to chat anything cars, clothes, shoes, and check out some rockin’ rockabilly shows. The whole block is a time travel. You truly feel like you went back in time, into the 50’s. This lifestyle is really fun and I embrace it to the fullest. I love the culture! Especially the gorgeous women. I love the class and glamour of the women during that era, when women were not afraid to show off their true curves. As a kid, I wished I could have lived during that era, and I still do. Now I sorta can, my way!
