Louis Reard with Bikini

Original caption: Paris, France: Twenty seven years ago Louis Reard draped two tiny strips of cloth across a Paris showgirl and thus invented the bikini. He's seen here in his boutique on the Avenue de l'Opera in Paris with one of his current styles. "The string and nude styles will fail of themselves," predicts designer Reard, who also makes custom swimwear.
