Brigitte Anne-Marie Bardot was born in Paris on September 28, 1934. She was modelling for Elle Magazine when she was only 15. Brigitte appeared on screen for the first time in 1952 in “Le trou normand”. When she was 18, she married the French actor, writer, director and producer Roger Vadim.  In 1953 she made her first US production and took the US by storm with her beauty and sexuality. She also became a successful singer. Brigitte did not enjoy the fame. She attempted suicide multiple times. After her last movie in 1973, she established her own anilmal rights foundation, Foundation Brigitte Bardot and became a spokes person for that cause.

She became a sex symbol and liberated women unconsciously. She dressed as she pleased in Frye Boots, ribbons, ballet flats and tulip skirts. She created the style Hippie Deluxe. Her style was very feminine and chic. The years as a ballet dancer influences her style with black, tight leotards, hair bands, and ballerina flats. Bardot also made the bikini popular.

“I’m a girl from a good family who was very well brought up. One day I turned my back on it all and became a bohemian”.
– Bardot.
