Marilyn Monroe

As far as bikini babes go, you could say Marilyn Monroe is up there. Aside from being one of the most sexy women in the history of, oh, ever, the actress was a fashion icon in her own right.

Monroe rocked retro looks that still inspire us today. And when she took her pinup style to the beach, we're guessing that mermaids everywhere got jealous. So, just as we near the peak of summer, we can’t help but to look to the icon for a little seaside style inspiration.
