French sex kitten Brigitte Bardot had one of the most memorable come-hither looks of her time. And i still think she has a very modern look, her beauty hasn't seemed to date.

Brigitte has had a dramatic influence on the fashion world.  The Bardot neckline (a wide open neck that exposes both shoulders) is named after her. Brigitte popularized this style, which is used for knitted sweaters or jumpers and many styles of tees. She is also recognised for making the bikini popular in early movies she starred in such as Manina (Woman without a Veil, 1952), and also in many photo shoots. Brigitte also brought into fashion the choucroute ("Sauerkraut"). Note: the hairstyle not the sausage!

All the photographs that i have found are flawless, and these were taken well before PhotoShop was invented.  I love that her style was so effortlessly chic. In one photograph i found,  all she had on was a simple black headband, a little sheath dress, a bit of liquid eyeliner...Oh, and of course there was plenty of sultry attitude to top it off (hence why she was deemed a sex kitten) and she just looked so stunningly beautiful.

Her lips are to die for, as is her hair. No wonder so many people have tried to master her look. I have found a new love for her. She is my new icon.

Happy Sunday.
