I was listening to Frankie J's song That Girl and Mannie Fresh has this line that goes: She's got a face like a supermodel, and body built just like a Coke bottle. Well the comparison has been going around for so long and I'd like to know when did it became famous and who popularized it.

Well, at the time Coca Cola (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coca-Cola) came out, the ladies were wearing Belle Epoch (http://www.fashion-era.com/la_belle_epoque_1890-1914_fashion.htm) style clothes. This look very much emphasized a tiny waist, and hips/out-thrust bosom. (It has been called the "Pouter Pidgeon look".) It exaggerated the female form, with it's S bend corsets, and Gibson Girl looks. The analogy was quite natural.
