PHOTOS: The Most Famous Bikinis Of All Time
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Hope you're not sick of birthdays, what with America's big bash yesterday. Today the bikini turns 66, having been ushered into the world by French designer Louis Réardon on July 5, 1946. So to the bikini we say: happy birthday, old friend! Or foe really -- because has there ever been a garment we so love to hate and hate to love? We wrestle with its dark powers in poorly-lit dressing rooms and let it haunt us it as we sweat on the elliptical. And yet the bikini has had some glorious moments that we can't help but adore, from Halle Berry's killer orange suit in "Die Another Day" to Carrie Fisher's geek-chic ensemble in "Return of the Jedi." Teen boys will never forget Phoebe Cates emerging from the swimming pool in "Fast Times At Ridgemont High," nor will little girls ever let go of Ariel in "The Little Mermaid." So in honor of the swimsuit's big day, here's a look back at the most memorable bikini moments ever. Vote on your faves.. and let us know in the comments if ...

Alicia Silverstone Reunites With Her ‘Clueless’ Director for Vampires in the City Tale ‘Vamps’
Film School Rejects - almost 5 years
Amy Heckerling has been developing the habit of making movies about once a generation that perfectly encapsulates the zeitgeist of current youth culture. In the early ’80s, it was her film Fast Times at Ridgemont High that gave high school kids all over the world the idea to have pizzas delivered to their classrooms and made that one Cars song be forever linked with Phoebe Cates taking off her top. In the mid-’90s she brought us Clueless, which introduced the world to how cute Paul Rudd is when he sheepishly grins and finally asked a lost generation to pull up their pants and stop looking like trashballs. So now that it’s 2012 and Heckerling has written and directed a new film, you have to ask yourself if it’s going to be another one of those generation defining moments in movies, or if it’s just going to end up being another Look Who’s Talking? Her new project is called Vamps, and seeing as it’s a little late to cash in on the vampire crazy, its chances of becoming a big thing are ...

  • 1984
    Age 20
    In 1984, she starred in the TV mini-series Lace, based on a novel which Shirley Conran had written.
    More Details Hide Details She played the role of Lili "to get away from a sameness in her movie portrayals." During her audition, she so impressed the writer that he wanted to hire her there and then. Cates struggled with the portrayal of a bitter movie star because, despite her character's vicious persona, she intended for the audience to sympathize with her. She did not read Conran's novel, on which the movie was based, because she did not want to have a "fixed image." Her line in the film, "Which one of you bitches is my mother?", was named the greatest line in television history by TV Guide in 1993.
  • TEENAGE
  • 1983
    Age 19
    In 1983, during her audition for a role (that eventually went to Meg Tilly) in The Big Chill, Cates met actor Kevin Kline for the first time, and became romantically involved with him despite a 16-year age gap.

  • 1982

    Later in 1982, Cates starred in Fast Times at Ridgemont High, which features what Rolling Stone described as "the most memorable bikini-drop in cinema history."
    More Details Hide Details She was quoted as saying that she had the most fun in filming that movie. The following year, she was in the sex comedy Private School, which co-starred Matthew Modine and Betsy Russell, and for which she sang on two songs of the film's soundtrack, "Just One Touch" and "How Do I Let You Know". Cates's later film roles were more modest and largely oriented toward younger audiences, such as the two Gremlins films and the 1991 film Drop Dead Fred. Her face graced the covers of teen magazines such as Seventeen, Tiger Beat, Teen Beat, and others.
    In a 1982 interview, she recalled having trouble with the change of career, because as a model, she had to be conscious of the camera, whereas in front of the movie camera, she could not.
    More Details Hide Details Cates later regretted being in the movie and said, "What I learned was never to do a movie like that again." According to her co-star Willie Aames, "She will have nothing to do with the film. She's really upset about it. She won't do any promotion with me."
