SWIMSUIT GETS STARRING ROLE
That hot little black bikini Anne Heche wears in “Six Days, Seven Nights” is a Robin Piccone.
“I didn’t know until everyone started calling me,” said Richard Battaglia, senior sales manager and husband of designer Robin Piccone. Of course, they’re thrilled. The suit gets major exposure in both the movie and on its posters.
The sexy two-piece features a triangle underwire halter top and a hipster bottom both with buckle details. It retails for $98.
And at least one store is playing up the movie angle. Three mannequins in the window of Canyon Beachwear’s Beverly Center shop sport the bikini and loose overshirts — just like the posters — and Anne Heche-style wigs.
Swimsuit sales have been soft this year, but Battaglia said, “This suit is making some noise. It’s been a sellout.”
