Bernie Dexter is an American Pin-up and cheesecake model. She lives in San Diego, California, and is married to neo-rockabilly musician Levi Dexter. Her ubiquity modelling for many vintage reproduction clothing and accessory companies in the USA, Canada and Europe has made her one of the most well-known of the contemporary vintage-influenced pin-ups. She bears a very close resemblance to legendary 50's pin-up queen Bettie Page, and has a cult following of pin-up and vintage fans.

Early career

When she was 18, she won "Miss Teen San Diego County" and initially pursued a career in acting and modelling. [http://www.retroradar.com/Retro_Profile___Pinup.184.0.html] She trained at cosmetology school, first working for Make-up Art Cosmetics and then working freelance on photoshoots. [ [http://www.corsetheaven.com/corsets/art/Bernie-Dexter.asp Bernie Dexter, Corset Model. Corset Art, pictures and models from Corsetheaven ] ] It was on one of these shoots, in 2002, that Dexter was photographed herself. She entered the photographs in the "Viva Las Vegas" pin-up contest and got such good feedback that she decided to concentrate on being a pin-up model.
