Derek’s second-skin suit with a fringed update (courtesy of Ale by Alessandra) scores, you guessed it, a perfect 10 ($164).

Angelina Jolie’s Black Bikini in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001)

All this Araks baby needs is a French braid and a badass attitude (top, $200; bottom, $125).

Farrah Fawcett’s Blue Surfing Suit in Sunburn (1979)

Caught us! While Fawcett’s red bikini from her iconic poster is one of her most memorable looks, we love this short-sleeved suit’s cut and ocean-dipped hue (possibly even more) (designed by Lisa Marie Fernandez, $395).

Elizabeth Taylor’s White One-Piece in Suddenly, Last Summer (1959)

This white Lisa Curran one-piece, accented by a subtly sexy keyhole, is a classic—just like the lady who wore the original ($245).

Sally Field’s Yellow Bikini in Gidget (1965)

Sally Field - Gidget bikini
Teen queen! Sally Field brought the sunshine in her yellow bikini as Gidget.

Small-screen pick! Does anything inspire an instant smile quite like the teen beach queen’s ruffled Pilyq two-piece (top, $72; bottom, $72)?

Phoebe Cates’ Cherry String Bikini in Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)

Phoebe Cates - Fast Times at Ridgemont High bikini
Phoebe Cates flaunted all of her assets in this teeny bikini in Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

Two words, never more true: red hot (by Despi; top, $91; bottom, $89).

Audrey Hepburn’s Striped Bikini in Two for the Road (1967)

A far cry from Holly Golightly’s LBD, Hepburn embraced the rainbow in this delicious, striped suit (by Nanette Lepore; top, $76; bottom, $64).

Ursula Andress’ Buckled Bikini in Dr. No (1962)

Ursula Andress - James Bond bikini
In Dr. No, Ursula Andress tempted James Bond in this buckled two-piece.

Because who doesn’t want to look like a Bond girl (by Shan; top, $220; bottom, $130)?

Rita Hayworth’s Bow-Adorned Number in Gilda (1946)

Rita Hayworth - Gilda black dress
Rita Hayworth looked ever the lady in her bow-topped dress, which inspired this swimsuit by Jets by Jessika Allen.

No, Hayworth didn’t don a swimsuit in this movie; in fact, she was actually working her post-baby body in this dress, and the bow helped to hide her extra curves. But in the end, it was all about that bow—a detail that’s just as lovely on this semi-sheer Jets by Jessika Allen one-piece ($259).
