We know bikini as a two-piece set which has a bra top and an underwear. Do you think that’s it ? It has huge history linked.
Bikini was first made by a French designer, Jacques Heim who ran a beach shop.
When the premier Miss World contest was held, the winner, Swedish Kiki Håkanssontook the title wearing a bikini and she looked gorgeous.
Its not just a foreign trend, our Bollywood divas of the 70s carried those bikinis and put fire all over the stage. Sharmila Tagore wore a bikini in the movie, An Evening in Paris (1967) sending the country into a tizzy. She became the first Indian actress to have worn the bikini for Filmfare’s cover.
After Sharmila, many other actresses of that time like ZeenatAman, Dimple Kapadia rocked in bikini.
With the passage of time, these bikinis have got more sass and designs. From string styles to halter neck, triangle or plunge, current actresses carry all and leave our mouths opened. There’s hot, there’s hotter, there’s hottest and then there are these bold Bollywood beauties.
