Beauty Icon: Brigitte Bardot

The ultimate sex kitten, I adore Brigitte Bardot and her signature cat eye makeup. She looks amazing blonde or brunette and her hair is the perfect blend of voluminous and tousled, always perfectly imperfect!

Some interesting facts about this French Beauty:
-She is a strong animal rights activist
-The "Bardot" neckline is named after her, a wide style that exposes both shoulders
-beehive hair style with a slightly disorderly appearance first sported by Bardot in the 60s is named Choucroute in French. Her hair is arranged in such a style that was deemed reminiscent of choucroute("Sauerkraut") heaped high on a plate.

"A photograph can be an instant of life captured for eternity that will never cease looking back at you"-Brigitte Bardot

Baby Bardot!

aww..looks like my basset hound Copper!
