9 Most Memorable Swimsuits in TV and Film History, From Jean Harlow to Halle Berry (Photos)
On this day in 1946, the bikini made its debut. To celebrate #NationalBikiniDay, let’s take a look back at some of the most iconic swimsuits–both one- and two-piece–in film and television, from the 1930s to the present.

1930s: Jean Harlow

In the 1930s, before her death at age 26, film actress Jean Harlow was a Hollywood sex symbol. According to Redbook, she was also one of the earliest stars to be photographed in a swimsuit.

1940s: Betty Grable

Betty Grable was celebrated in the 1930s and 40s for her “million dollar legs.” Though this yellow bikini is not as famous as Grable’s famous one-piece and high heels attire, it’s iconic in its own right.

1950s: Esther Williams

1960s: Ursula Andress (first Bond girl)

This Swiss actress catapulted to fame as the first “Bond girl” in the 1962 film, “Dr. No.” The scene where Andress rises out of the

There's a Simple Reason Why Kate Middleton Wears Jenny Packham for Each Royal Baby Debut

No, you're not experiencing déjà vu — Kate Middleton really does wear the same designer each time she steps out of the Lindo Wing of London's St. Mary's Hospital with a new baby. When she introduced newborn Prince George to the world in 2013, she wore a blue Jenny Packham dress with white polka dots, likely a tribute to the dress her late mother-in-law Princess Diana wore when she introduced Prince William in 1982. When Kate debuted Princess Charlotte in 2015, she donned a white Jenny Packham dress printed with yellow flowers. And when she showed off her latest child on Monday, April 23, she rocked a red Jenny Packham dress with a white lace Peter Pan collar in another probable nod to Diana. So why does the Duchess keep returning to the same designer for all her hospital dresses? (Photo Credit: Getty Images) It's all about form and function, apparently. There's no denying these

Why James Bond Shouldn’t Be A Woman, According to Former Bond Girl

Former Bond girl Rosamund Pike from Die Another Day kind of has a point why the next Bond shouldn’t be a woman. Of course if there’s a woman out there that’s the offspring of Bond, it could happen, there might be a little more groundwork that could be laid for such an emergence. But one thing is certain, simply switching James Bond to a female spy would be something that might have more dire implications than many people might realize. It’s not so much that it couldn’t be done, it’s more like it shouldn’t since to be quite honest the

'Lost in Space' Star Toby Stephens Explains His Own Space-Time Continuum

Toby Stephens' dad, Sir Richard Stephens, was considered one of the greatest British actors of his generation, heir apparent to Laurence Olivier. His mom, Maggie Smith, is an even more revered fixture of stage and screen. So, naturally, their son would grow up to star in Lost in Space.

To be fair, Stephens served plenty of time in period dramas and highbrow BBC productions (everything from Twelfth Night to Onegin to Cousin Bette). But in 2002, he landed the plumb role of Bond villain Gustav Graves in Die Another Day and the next thing he knew he was being cast...

Rosamund Pike Doesn’t Think There Should Be a Female James Bond

Rosamund Pike, co-star of the upcoming spy thriller Beirut, doesn’t like the concept of a female James Bond. In a recent interview, the former Bond Girl expressed her thoughts on Ian Fleming’s iconic creation, and what should happen after Daniel Craig’s final performance as the international man of mystery.

In 2002, Pike made her feature film debut in Lee Tamahori’s Die Another Day, the 20th installment in the James Bond movie franchise.

Danny Boyle Plans to Direct Bond 25 This Year, but ‘It All Depends’ on John Hodge’s Script Being Approved

Danny Boyle Plans to Direct Bond 25 This Year, but ‘It All Depends’ on John Hodge’s Script Being Approved
Danny Boyle emerged as the top pick to direct Bond 25 late last month, and the director confirms in a new interview with Metro that he has every intention of directing Daniel Craig in the next 007 movie. However, the final decision is not Boyle’s to make. The director and his “Trainspotting” screenwriter John Hodge cracked a story idea for Bond 25 that franchise producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli enjoyed, but Boyle won’t be made director until Hodge delivers a final script that gets approved.

“We are working on a [“Bond 25”] script right now,” Boyle confirmed to Metro. “And it all depends on that really. I am working on a Richard Curtis script at the moment. We hope to start shooting that in six or seven weeks. Then ‘Bond’ would be right at the end of the year. But we are working on them both right now.”

Sam Mendes and company: Ranking the 007 directors

With recent rumors swirling that Danny Boyle could be coming on board to direct the newest James Bond film, what better time is there to look at the directorial history of the franchise? The prospect of Boyle in the world of Bond is enticing, if slightly unexpected and not a match that makes sense on paper. Still, much of the 007 history in terms of directors has been avoiding the A-listers. Maybe in this new era, there’s a different sort of focus? If nothing else, it’s something very interesting to contemplate. The last choice was a big name, so perhaps this is the new normal for the world’s most popular secret agent. To catch you up, the 25th Bond outing has been looking for a new director after Sam Mendes helmed the last two. The initial final three shortlist was Yann Demange, David Mackenzie, and Denis Villeneuve. There

Netflix’s Lost In Space Debuts A Slick New Poster And Trailer

“Danger, Will Robinson” and “That does not compute” will forever be associated with the 1960’s sci-fi TV show “Lost in Space,” created and produced by Irwin Allen. With their home away from home aboard the Jupiter 2, the Robinson family left Earth on October 16, 1997 on a five-and-a-half-year journey to a planet orbiting the nearest star. In the show, the family was made up of Professor John Robinson, his biochemist wife, Maureen, their children, Judy, Penny, and Will. Also on board was U.S. Space Corps Major and pilot Donald West, who is trained to fly and land the ship. But Dr. Smith, a spy, sabotages the Jupiter 2, reprograms the Robot, but is inadvertently stuck on board and the ship is thrown of course. Thus the premise of the show.

“Lost in Space” ran for three seasons from 1965 to 1968 on CBS, just about the same time “Star Trek” was on the air over on NBC.
