Figleaves.com has a great piece celebrating the bikini's 60th anniversary. Of course, you can't discuss the subject without highlighting the famous military-inspired bikini worn by Ursula Andress in the Bond film Dr. No. Andress herself even credits her success to this bikini.
Forty years after Dr. No, Halle Berry paid homage to Andress in Die Another Day and designers continue to offer Bond-inspired suits every year.
