Be A Bond Girl With This Swim Collection
Your favorite swimsuit shop is letting you channel some iconic movie moments in beachwear this summer. Everything But Water's 30th Anniversary collection will allow you to stage your very own Baywatch beach run — with the red bathing suit to match. To celebrate their big 3-0, the brand is releasing a limited edition collection featuring 30 swimsuits modeled after the most memorable beachside looks in Hollywood history. But I still don't recommend reenacting From Here to Eternity's sex on the beach scene, even if you look the part.
There are some pretty iconic swimsuits out there, and I'm not just talking about that itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini. You've also got Deborah Kerr's black skirted swimsuit that barely got past the 1953 censors, Princess Leia's gold bikini, Elizabeth Taylor's beautiful white maillot in Suddenly Last Summer, and Halle Berry's Die Another Day orange strappy two-piece. The possibilities for dressing like an old-school screen siren this summer are endless.
The Everything But Water swimsuit collection boasts a pretty impressive roster of swimsuit designers, such Mara Hoffman, Araks, Seafolly, Zimmermann, and Trina Turk, according to Refinery29. And with the untouchably iconic inspiration of old school celebs like Brigitte Bardot, Marilyn Monroe, and the Bond Girls of yesteryear, this collection is basically Annette Funicello's Muscle Beach Party meets old Hollywood glamour.
While I desperately want all the pieces from the collection for my own chance at looking like Grace Kelly (and a personal invite to hang with Moondoggie on the California beaches), check out my top picks from the line below. Here's hoping that slipping on her colorful bikini à la Two for the Road, will somehow transform me into Audrey Hepburn.
