Bikini, the itsy-bitsy beachwear, celebrates one more birthday today. At 66, it has shed none of its drool quotient or its sex appeal. God only knows what French automotive engineer, Louis Reard, was smoking when he hit upon the idea of the bikini. It does not matter. He certainly came up with something wonderful that refuses to fade with age. Here is look at celebrities in the swimwear.
