Our Babe of the Month: Miss Natalie Noir

Meet our first Babe of the Month for 2018 the lovely Miss Natalie Noir. This modern day Marilyn discovered her passion for pinup modeling just two years ago. She recently graced the cover of the December issue of Pinup Kulture Magazine as well. 

She’s also featured as Miss October in my new 2018 Pinup Calendar. With her bubbly personality and magic smile Natalie continues to win the hearts of new fans everywhere. Check out her bio:


Hello, I am known as Natalie Noir, but you can call me Natalie






I was born & raised in Orange County, born in Irvine, California & grew up in Costa Mesa, California to be exact!

Current residence:

In the heart of Santa Ana, California near Downtown.


Pinup Model & Sales Associate

Dream job:

I absolutely love modeling, but I’m also an aspiring cosmetologist!


I have a dream to go to cosmetology school & have my own private salon with my good friend one day!

First pinup shoot:

My first pinup shoot technically was a test shoot with my boyfriend, because a shoot fell apart last minute. My first official pinup shoot I would have to say, in studio or location, was at Wonderland Studios with Rene Lopez for a group shoot in 2015!


I have been published many times over the years, the most recent being the December Holiday Issue of Pinup Kulture Magazine’s where I am featured as their Cover Model. I am also Miss October for Mitzi & Co’s 2018 Hot Rod Pinup Calendar, I am featured in Car Kulture Deluxe, Ol Skool Rodz Issue #85, Pinups & Hotrods Magazine & much more!

Favorite car show:

I’d have to say Mooneyes & I have yet to experience Viva yet, I am excited to go for the first time this year!

Tell us about your pinup contest experience:

I started doing contests because a friend told me it was a great way to work on social anxiety & public speaking, so I wanted to improve that. I have been blessed to win every single contest just by walking away with such great friendships. It is truly a sisterhood… Myself & many others are doing what we can to make this an inclusive experience, no matter your shape, size or color, you are welcome & deserve a spot. Pinup is all about Diversity & its time we TELL THE WORLD!

Last contest:

6th Annual Throw Down Car Show at The Phoenix Club in September 2016

First contest:

Bombs Car Show in June 2016 in the City of Industry

What helps you when you get nervous on stage:

Looking around & seeing I’m not alone up there, looking in the crowd & seeing a familiar face like my mother or my love, & looking back on each contest I’ve done & how far I have come.

Favorite foods:

How in the world could I ever choose one?!? I LOVE food almost more than anything else in this world! I love Italian, Japanese, Mexican, I could go ON & ON! If you want to know anything about me…I’ve got an appetite! Ask anyone that knows me well!

Favorite drink:

I absolutely love “Jamaica” which is a Mexican beverage made from brewed hibicus flowers. I really love tea as well. If I’m going for a rare adult beverage, I keep it classy with a “Poinsettia”, a glass of champagne with a splash of cranberry juice!

Describe your perfect day:

A sunny afternoon with a breeze, walking through nature onto a private beach with a picnic all set up to share with my love.

Describe your personal style:

I do love dressing vintage inspired, however some days I tend to be a bit more casual. I love high waisted pants & pencil skirts, cute tops & dresses! I can throw on some sneakers with a tee & jeans, or wear a floor length gown & heels! I love having the creativity with wardrobe.

What do you do for fun:

Well, modeling is definitely on this list because if I didn’t love it & enjoy doing it… I wouldn’t! I love spending time with my loved ones & my fur babies, & also going to art walks or open mics in my community. Last but not least, I love being involved in pinup contests!

Describe your perfect date:

An evening out enjoying a burlesque show wearing a glamorous gown after a romantic dinner, going back to a hotel & just spending the rest of the night with my love, ordering whatever we wanted for our midnight snack! Or to be simple… Like I mentioned above, as my perfect day was described!

Favorite hot rod or classic car:

My first favorite would be my great grandmother’s 1956 Chevy Bel Air…but I just love being around all the classics. Lincoln Zephyr’s & Chevy Pickups are also some of my favorites!
