The original bikini - more daring than one might expect for 1946.

Ah, the full bush bursting out at the sides, as one would expect in the land of Courbet’s L’Origine du Monde. Showing my age, but today’s germophobes and their obsession with landing strips don’t know what they’re missing

I’m glad to have missed that era.

Hot girl, but as soon as I see those tats, I think *Meh*.  I just don't get it.  Why would you take an already beautiful work of art and spray graffiti all over it?

It just absolutely screams "Trailer Trash"!
Totally - I've never seen a tat no matter how elaborate or colourful that enhanced a woman's looks.

I've reached the point where I don't even care for jewelry anymore - looks like the chrome doodads they slathered on 50's cars.

A beautiful woman can't be improved with decoration.

Bears repeating, as Jeff said above SJP, why spray grafitti on a beautiful piece of art..
