Despite our emphasis on retro style dresses and indie clothing, we couldn’t help but notice this recent blog from Dailymail.co.UK a few weeks back.
The piece discusses the bathing suit choice of model-turned-actress Jamie King, who opted to wear a vintage style black one piece swimsuit while hanging on Miami Beach. After all, it’s unusual to find a young, gorgeous actress chilling on a beach in anything more than a hair-thin bikini. So to see King in something you’d expect Marilyn Monroe to have worn caught us a bit off guard.
That being said, King inarguably wore it well. The woman is absolutely beautiful, and the retro style of this bathing suit does nothing to change that.
For those who don’t remember, King garnered her fame from her roles in Pearl Harbor and Sin City, though she was successful model for years before her acting career began.
Since 2007, King has been married to director Kyle Newman, who she apparently loves even more than we love her vintage style bathing suit:“I don’t know why, but some part of me was instantly connected to him, and I loved him so much. It was intense. I never thought that would happen to me.”
