The Thong Is Dead!

In 1995, the thong had its coming-out party when Victoria's Secret put on its first-ever public runway show. After the whole world saw that Heidi and Tyra were flossing, demand for the thong skyrocketed.

Two highly publicized events helped grant the thong its iconic status. First, President Bill Clinton was busted for fooling around with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, and one of the juiciest tidbits Monica confessed was that she had seduced him by flashing her thong.

Soon after, Britney Spears solidified her
status as pop's steamiest act by performing in a rhinestone thong under sheer pants at the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards.

Boy shorts are the new rage. And I think they look great.
