Bikini in History
Contest Directions: From ridicule to ubiquity, the bikini has come a long way over the past 66 years. On July 5, 1946, French fashion designer Louis Réard hired an exotic dancer to sport his two-piece creation after the runway models he approached refused to wear it. But despite provoking controversy - centering around everything from morality to skin cancer to liposuction - it is clear that the teenie weenie suit is here to stay.
To celebrate the birthday of the bikini, put bikinis into famous art works - use bikinis in paintings or dress statues in bikinis.
