1. Phoebe Cates in Fast Times At Ridgemont High (1982)
No list centered on bikini moments, dream sequences, or watery sexiness would be complete without the granddaddy of them all, '80s goddess Phoebe Cates’ slow-motion, poolside dropping of her red bathing suit top in Fast Times At Ridgemont High’s iconic daydream sequence.
Truthfully, the rest of Cates’ career choices paled in comparison (save for the terrific horror-comedy Gremlins, of course), but who needs awards or multiple film classics when your wet, aired-out breasts are the stuff of legend? Certainly not Phoebe Cates.
