Bernie Dexter is an American model. She lives in San Diego, California, and is married to neo-rockabilly musician Levi Dexter.
When she was 18, she won Miss Teen San Diego County and initially pursued a career in acting and modelling. She trained at cosmetology school, first working for Make-up Art Cosmetics and then working freelance on photoshoots. 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.
In an article on 7 March 2008, German tabloid Bild dubbed Dexter the queen of pin-ups (die Königin des Pin-ups) and asked if she is the new Dita Von Teese. This came about from her work with the online, German-based webshop Ars Vivendi.
