Ecclestones In Monaco: Bikinis, Birkins, Helicopter Shopping Trips & More Tanning

by Emily Green · July 22, 2011

Don't worry, guys. Tamara and Petra Ecclestone are doing juuuust fine. After spending the last week or so yachting through St. Tropez and Monaco, they've now achieved that rich mahogany glow that makes pastel bikinis, and color in general, really pop. We hear the weather in the French Riviera has been divine, exceptional for tanning as you can see, and there's plenty of chilled Perrier to keep cool before hitting the shops. Oh, you think they walked or maybe docked the boat to do that? Bless your heart. No, no, a helicopter, darling. A helicopter. [L-R: Petra Ecclestone, Tamara Ecclestone]

While aboard their yacht Force One today, Tamara got a little restless from the Perrier bubbles and steadily rousted herself to hop in a helicopter to the mainland and do some damage in the shops. Not before grabbing the croc Birkin and throwing on a pair of cutoffs, you know, because she's on vacation and is just keeping it casual. Thank goodness the heli was there to help airlift her purchases back to her watercraft.

It's been thrilling waking up every day to see what the Ecclestone sisters are up to and which bikinis they decided to go with that day. Maybe it's because they're European so they seem way more interesting and sophisticated than this American Paris Hilton riffraff. Or maybe it's that they could probably buy and sell Paris if they wanted to. And that I haven't seen either of their vaginas. There's still some mystique.  Either way, I need to get a better look at those tans they have...

Look how necessary that gold jewelry with their bikinis is. They have to leave it on to keep their tan lines consistent. So chic.
