The Swinging Sixties with Bridgett Bardott

Today I wanted to talk to you about one of my favourite ladies; Bridgett Bardott. I wanted to do this in bullet point facts. I hope you enjoy!
  •  She retired as an actress when she was 39 and became a full time animal rights activist.
  •  She never wanted to be seen as a sex symbol, revealing in an interview: “All my life…I was never what I wanted to be, which was frank, honest, and straightforward. I wasn’t scandalous — I didn’t want to be. I wanted to be myself. Only myself.”
  •  An ardent animal activist she once contacted Russian prime minister Vladimir Putin to thank him for his work on behalf of wolves and for banning the sealskin trade.
  • Despite being idolised by the world over, Bardot claims she has never found enduring happiness and is reported to have made several suicide attempts.
  •  She popularised the bikini in her early films such as Manina. The ‘Bardot’ fashion neckline is also coined after her.

Brigitte Anne-Marie Bardot, a name that almost immediately pops into your mind when the term '1960's fashion icon' is mentioned. Brigitte defined the fashion of that era with her trademark. The smoky eyes paired with tousled blonde hair and her killer curves that made her being labelled as the 'ultimate sex kitten'. In fact, her roughed-up bed-head look is an inspiration to the new generation with celebrities like Kate Moss and Blake Lively emulating her sexy attitude and iconic beauty.

“I gave my beauty and my youth to men. I am going to give my wisdom and experience to animals.”
“A photograph can be an instant of life captured for eternity that will never cease looking back at you.”
“Only idiots refuse to change their minds.”
“It is sad to grow old and not ripen.”
“People are forever finding something wrong with you.”
Today's blog post is all about Bridgett Bardot's style from the 60's. I have enjoyed researching into this iconic fashion iconic and even though I did not write a lot of facts about her as I wanted to show her style of clothing, hair and beauty.
