The J Crew swimsuit has a history of being used in pop culture as well as in fashion.
But its popularity is fading as the brand’s fashion partners are focusing on more mainstream styles.
Milano recently gave a revealing interview about her new look, which includes her hair dyed a blonde color and the new dress she’ll be wearing in the film, The Revenant.
The Revenant was released in limited release in the United States on December 25.
It stars Milano as an American war veteran who returns to her homeland to rescue a young boy who has fallen in love with her in the wilds of California.
The film was released just days before Milano gave an interview with The Daily Beast, where she said she was inspired by the film’s theme and the iconic look of her vintage swimsuit.
“I thought it would be really cool if we had an old suit that had a little bit of a bit of an edge to it,” Milano said.
“So I made up a whole story that was kind of a reinterpretation of a story from The Revenants book.”
“I thought, If I could do this, it would also feel like it was a celebration of the time in my life that I have been wearing the suit,” she said.
