Iconic: Swimsuit Moments

There are some swimsuit moments you can never forget (and deep down have always wanted to recreate.)  From Farrah Fawcett’s red one-piece in the 70s, to Tyra Banks posing on the cover of Sports Illustrated in the 90s, and Beyonce showing us what she’s got in Goldmember, these women have had all of us clicking through the internet & flipping through Vogue trying to find the perfect bathing suit that would give us our own iconic moment.   Lucky for you we have compiled some picks from the store and created an easy guide so you can achieve a swimwear look just like your favorite stars.

This is for all you Marilyn lovers out there.  Who could forget when this blonde bombshell overtook Jones Beach in 1949 photo shoot.   These iconic photos of Ms. Monroe in her white skirted one-piece.  During the reign of the hourglass figure, Marilyn Monroe reigned supreme and one of the oldest clothing manufacturers in California was right there producing the suit everyone yearned for.  This 1960s Catalina one-piece is perfect for any girl looking for that perfectly smooth curvy silhouette!

Who could forget the ‘one-chick hit squad’ Pam Grier looking fantastic in her macrame two-piece in the 1973 movie ‘Coffy’.  Macrame was definitely the fabric of choice in the 70s, but on the runway crochet pieces are coming back stronger than ever this season.  Mix up your usual swimsuit choice in our Yellow Macrame Bikini.  This vibrant yellow piece is perfect for coolin’ poolside with a book just like your favorite vigilante & bad girl Coffy!

Probably one of the most iconic swimwear moments, Farrah Fawcett’s red suit showed us that even one-pieces can be outright sexy.  When the poster was released in 1976, Fawcett quickly became a household name selling 12 million copies in one year, and to this day the image represents 1970s pop culture.  You can find the exact red one-piece that Fawcett wore today at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, but you can get your very own sexy red suit here at C.Madeleine’s!  Our 1980s Norma Kamali red one-piece is the perfect suit to give you that “not afraid to be sexy & free” look Fawcett was known for.

In the unforgettable 1980s romantic comedy, ‘The Sure Thing’ Nicolette Sheridan quickly rose to sex symbol status when she sported this sexy white bikini.  With the all white trend being such a hit this season, why not try an all-white swim look too?  Our 1980s Gottex Gold Painted white bikini gives the little extra detail that we all look for in the perfect bikini.  The bra top bikini will give you a sexy shape and have you feeling like a sex symbol yourself!

In 1996 Tyra Banks made history as the first African American to pose on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue – alongside model Valeria Mazza.  Tyra was afraid to show off her assets in that sexy string bikini.  If you want to try some leopard print this summer but still want to cover up a bit, try our Spiegal Skirted Bikini.  The leopard print two-piece will give you that same South African Adventure look at Ms. Banks, without having you feel like you’re showing too much (AKA the best of both worlds)!


Everybody loves a little Beyoncé, lucky for us we got a whole lot of this bootylicious babe during her role as Foxxy Cleopatra in ‘Austin Powers: Goldmember’.   The metallic swimsuit is an example of the period’s obsession with the Space Age.  Our 1980s Gottex Silver Metallic Bikini will have you feeling like a ‘whole lotta woman’ – in a good way, of course.
