Photo of the Day

In this Feb. 26, 2013 photo, Brazilian designer Lenny Niemeyer poses for a photo in her office in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Before she became Brazil's bikini queen, with an empire of chic boutiques and legions of VIP fans, Niemeyer was locked away in her garage, making swimwear from scraps of used cloth and sliced cow bones. Known for her use of muted earth tones and the clean, almost architectural lines of her swimwear, Niemeyer sells some 350,000 pieces a year, mostly at her 26 boutiques throughout the country, but also at multi-mark shops in Britain, France, the Bahamas and in 23 U.S. states.
