Timeless icons – Brigitte Bardot

Hello dears, 

I chose as today’s protagonist of the “Timeless-icons” series the enchanting Brigitte Bardot. 

(Thank you Wiki for providing most of the contents here displayed in an extensive section on the voluptuous subject) 

She is… 
an animal rights activist and a former actress, singer and fashion model from France. 

Accomplishments…
– until her retirement from the show biz in 1973, she starred in 47 films, performed in several musical shows, and recorded over 50 songs. 
– she was one of the best-known sex symbols of the 1950s and 60s

The muse… 
– according to the liner notes of his first (self-titled) album, Bob Dylan dedicated the first song he ever wrote to Brigitte, who was as well idolized by young John Lennon and Paul McCartney
– she was the subject for an Andy Warhol painting
– a statue by Christina Motta honours Brigitte Bardot in Armação dos Búzios. 
– starting in 1969, BB’s features became the official face of Marianne (who had previously been anonymous) to represent the liberty of France.
– she was the subject of Simone de Beauvoir’s 1959 essay, The Lolita Syndrome, which described Bardot as a “locomotive of women’s history” and built upon existentialist themes to declare her the first and most liberated woman of post-war France 

Her style… 
BB brought into fashion : 
– the Bardot neckline (a wide open neck that exposes both shoulders)
– bikini swimwear
– the choucroute (“Sauerkraut”) hairstyle (a sort of beehive hair style)
– gingham clothes, after wearing a checkered pink dress, designed by Jacques Esterel, at one of her weddings.
