Congratulations to our May Pin Up of the Month, Jenny Rieu. A native from Paris, Jenny is a performer and vintage enthusiast. She started out as an Opera singer at the age of 13 and made her TV Debut in 2001 hosting her own show, “The Casting Live." Jenny moved to New York in 2008 to pursue theater studies and graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts of New York in 2010. A month later, she moved to L.A and was cast in her first play, “The Seven Deadly Sins.” She also created and starred in her own Cabaret show, "The Lady in Red". It is through her Cabaret Show that her passion for vintage clothing really came to life. From there she did her first pinup photo shoot (sailor-themed) and the rest is history. Jenny has been a cover model for Pinup Alternative Magazine and Black Pinups Magazine.
In addition to acting and modeling, Jenny is the lead singer of a band that she recently formed with her husband called, "Jenny and the Razors". She is the author of the song “Patisserie” for the award-winning documentary “Let Them Eat Cake.”
