Bikini - 65.
Sixty-five years ago, on July 5th 1946, the world's first bikini made its debut at a popular poolside fashion show in Paris, France.
When it first arrived, French fashion models refused to wear it. Then Louis Reard, a French car engineer who was introduced the first true version of what we know as the “bikini”, had to enlist a nude dancer, Micheline Bernardini, from the Casino de Paris instead.
So below are some pictures of bikini history:
“Discover a savage world where the only law is lust!” In One Million Years BC, a strange caveman adventure film, Welch is seen wearing a torn, fur-lined brown leather bikini.|
The most famous bikini scene in the history of cinema, from the 1962 James Bond Classic 'Dr. No.' In the scene Andress ermerges from the water wearing an off-white bikini.|
