Bo Derek, 10
Bo Derek set the unattainable standard for one pieces (and women!) everywhere. Following the film, this style (sans camel toe) flew off shelves. Unfortunately, the perfect body wasn't included. Thanks a lot, Bo. We're not all 10s.

The cast of Baywatch
In the early '90s, this classic red swimsuit made everyone want to run in slow motion and into bed with the babes of Baywatch (left to right: Nicole Eggert, David Hasselhoff, Alexandra Paul, David Charvet, Pamela Anderson).

Apparently Kazakhstan isn't big on manscaping! Sacha Baron Cohen's trendsetting look later inspired a slightly less hairy John Mayer to give it a go while on a cruise in 2008. Very nice!

Marilyn Monroe, How To Marry a Millionaire
Not everyone can pull off a strapless one-piece, but not everyone is Marilyn Monroe. Designed by William Travilla, the suit doesn't quite look waterproof. But hey, it's Hollywood magic.

Kerry Washington, Scandal
During the episode ''A Woman Scorned,'' Olivia Pope (Washington) swims laps in this monochromatic suit from Jets by Jessica Allen. Kudos to costumer Lyn Paolo for getting Liv out of those pantsuits.

Goldie Hawn, Overboard
The only thing better than the front of this bathing suit is the back. The sheer nude material gives the impression of a nearly nude Goldie Hawn. Zebra hasn't stood the test of time, but how could this image not be implanted in your brain? Sisqo was allegedly inspired to write the ''Thong Song'' after watching the 1987 film.*
*That is not true, not true at all.

Jennifer Lopez, ''Live It Up''
Jennifer Lopez lived the good life in this orange swimsuit as she shot scenes in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., for ''Live It Up,'' her 2013 collaboration with Pitbull. The matching lips, the suit, the legs? !Muy caliente!

Jenny Mccarthy and Jim Carrey
Consider it one size fits all. Back in 2008, Carrey stepped out of his Malibu beach house and onto the sand wearing the same skimpy black swimsuit his then-girlfriend McCarthy had worn earlier that day. Sadly, the couple that (cross)dresses together doesn't always stay together.

Deborah Kerr, From Here to Eternity
''I don't think anyone knew I could act until I put on a bathing suit,'' Deborah Kerr once told Collier's magazine. Surely her Academy Award nomination put an end to that. She may not have taken home the award, but this halter swimsuit helped her win the heart of Sgt. Milton Warden (Burt Lancaster) in the 1953 Best Picture winner.

Maggie Q, Nikita
Even a rogue assassin needs a day off. Maggie Q's Nikita broke out this red-hot number (which is technically a one piece!) for the revamped franchise's pilot episode.

Elizabeth Taylor, Suddenly, Last Summer
The 1959 film might have been a mystery flick, but Elizabeth Taylor's white swimsuit didn't leave much to the imagination. After a dip the in the water, there was no question what was behind that transparent suit.

Nicki Minaj, ''Starships''
Where's the beach? For her 2012 music video, the rapper took to the grassy fields of Oahu, Hawaii, where she gave fans a glimpse at her bikini bod in a barely there pink, white, and black suit paired with one of her trademark wacky wigs.

This 1942 photo of Grable may not have single-handedly ended World War II, but it sure gave soldiers something to fight for.

Sarah Jessica Parker, Sex and the City
Sure, the show was known for its shoes, but costume designer Patricia Field didn't skimp out on stylish swimsuits when the cast hit Los Angeles during the ''Sex & Another City'' episode in 2000. Sarah Jessica Parker wore a strapless neon green Norma Kamali suit for the occasion.

Esther Williams, Easy To Love
She passed away in June 2013, but the memory of ''America's Mermaid'' swims on in films like this 1953 gem. No one could pull off a one-piece and matching headpiece quite like Williams.

Leonardo DiCaprio, The Great Gatsby
Love the style of Gatsby's 1920's suit. Pity what happens next. Perhaps it was something he wore?
