We're loving all of the swimwear options that are out there right now; at Miami Swim Week, we've seen tons of different prints, colors, and silhouettes, and with each season brings a fresh crop of new looks to try. However, one bathing suit trend that never seems to go out of style is '50s glam. Just look at the effortless allure of bathing beauties like Rita Hayworth, Esther Williams, and Marilyn Monroe. Not only did they have killer curves and perfectly coiffed hair, but they were undeniably sexy while still leaving a little to the imagination. Modern-day stunners like Eniko Mihalik and Marloes Horst worked the trend for Bergdorf Goodman and Seafolly campaigns, respectively — proving that flirty ruffles, sweet gingham, and sailor stripes can still be hot combos. If barely there bikinis aren't your thing, or you just want to try a more retro look on the beach this season, click through to see all of our '50s-chic swimwear picks.
>> We had a few clues as to who made the cut for Terry Richardson's 2010 Pirelli calendar when he shot it last month in Bahia, Brazil, but now Italian Vanity Fair has the details on the full cast, which includes Daisy Lowe, Georgina Stojiljkovic, Eniko Mihalik, Catherine McNeil, Lily Cole, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Miranda Kerr, Ana Beatriz Barros, Gracie Carvalho, Marloes Horst, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
Terry produced thousands of images from the shoot with the girls holding sloths, fruit, roosters, and holding hands while running through waves in little else than a bikini bottom. The goal this year was to use "no makeup, no reflectors — only the flash of the camera — no branded clothes or jewelry, no girls altered surgically," said Andrea Imperiali, manager of Pirelli on the set. Fifty images will make the final cut when the calendar is debuted Nov. 19 in London, but until then the gallery below — which is NSFW — and a video of the shoot will have to do.
