Happy Birthday, Bikini!!
On July 5, 1946 a French designer named Louis Reard (yup, the creepy old dude to the left there) dug deep into the mind of all men and pulled out the one thing that would save humanity the institution of marriage a day at the beach Sports Illustrated magazine: The Bikini!
::: Thanks Louis!! And smooches from the hubster!! :::
That bitch took OFF all across the globe, except, of course, for prissy, priggish, puritanical America where the hotness was resisted until the youthful revolution and ultimate liberation of the 1960s.
And, well, do I really need to do a ‘what’s happened to it since?’
Nah, I didn’t think so 😉
Happy Birthday, girl — you look pretty good for 63!
