The few American tabloids that do this have only bikini girls, tops firmly in place. This is for two reasons: the MoralGuardians are stronger in the United States than in Europe, and American tabloids are chiefly aimed at middle-aged housewives, who often count themselves among said MoralGuardians. (Canadian tabloids also must limit themselves to bikini-clad women.[[note]]Canadian tabloids also have ''male'' Page Three Stunnas, although a bit further on in the paper.[[/note]]) For these reasons, the publications that do feature skin are almost always [[PublicExposure men's magazines]] like ''Maxim'' and ''Magazine/{{Playboy}}''. Some of the more famous American glamour models (or "pinup girls"), past and present, include Carmen Electra, Pamela Anderson, and Kate Upton, as well as many Victoria's Secret models. During WorldWarII, glamour models played a heavy role in wartime propaganda, with sexy pictures being distributed to [=GIs=] to... [[ADateWithRosiePalms relieve tension]].

* Not any more. The Page 3 website is effectively defunct as of the end of March 2017. The site is still there, but no new photos have been added since March 29th. There has not been an official announcement, but enquirers have apparently been told that there will be no more. Those models who were being featured right up to the end are now described in the paper as "former" Page 3 girls.

A {{British newspaper|s}} trope, basically involving the gratuitous placing of pictures of semi-naked people in a newspaper. Of course, when we say "people" we really mean "[[AlwaysFemale young attractive women]]." (''The Sun'' briefly had a Page Seven Fella in TheEighties, but it didn't last.)

The most famous (or infamous) example is ''The Sun'' and its "Page Three Girls", one of whom poses topless on the third page of each day's issue (unless something big and tragic has happened In which case she is pushed back to Page five. Or to Page Seven, if it's a REALLY big newsworthy catastrophe.). There's some quote from them on an issue of the day -- in which, by extraordinary coincidence, they invariably agree with the ''Sun'''s right-wing editorial stance. Some of the "models" used to be as young as 16 until the law was changed.

* Sugar Walls a.k.a. Sharon [=LaHughes=] from ''Series/GimmeGimmeGimme'' is famous for being a celebrity that poses in her underwear and topless in newspapers (although not named, you can guess after reading this page what some of those newspapers were).

* One appears in ''WaterlooRoad'' as a former pupil of the school.
* ''Whatever It Takes'' is an average {{ITV}} one-off drama about a trainee police officer who gets caught having sex with a footballer and becomes one of these, suffering the full effects of celebrity. She is "replaced" by another one, oddly enough played by an actress who had been in ''WaterlooRoad''.
