Happy Birthday, Bikini! In Honor of the Invention of the Two-Piece, Here Are the Most Iconic Bikinis in History

Posted on: July 6, 2012


Forget America’s birthday (well, don’t really, but)… Today, we celebrate the birth of one of the most revered and feared items of clothing to ever exist: The bikini. Yes, 66 years ago today (in 1946), the very first bikini was introduced to the world by designer Louis Réard in Paris, and its debut would forever change the course of swimwear and popular culture as we know it.

From Princess Leia’s sexy Star Wars slave ensemble and the highly anticipated annual swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated, it’s hard to picture a world without the two-piece. Can you imagine Phoebe Cates sporting a maillot? No way, Jose. So, in honor of the bikini‘s 66th birthday, we’ve put together 33 of the most iconic bikini moments ever. It’s only fitting–after all, the bikini’s just about half a bathing suit, right?

Happy birthday, bikini!
