    THE BIKINI BOOK
    Kelly Killoren Bensimon
    Thames & Hudson

    It may be strappy or sporty, sexy or slinky – but the bikini is always about beauty.
    This lavish volume lays bare the recent history of the bikini, from its first appearance on French beaches in 1946 to the vanishingly small strings of today.

    Here are:
    Hollywood's pinups of the 1950s
    James Bond girls rising from the sea
    Raquel Welch
    Annette Funicello
    Brigitte Bardot topless in St Tropez
    The itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny styles of the 1960s
    The monokini, tankini, bandini and V-kini

    Kelly Killoren Bensimon is the editor of Elle Accessories and writes widely on fashion and beauty.
