Style Icon: Brigitte Bardot

Another style icon. Another French woman. Another era. Brigitte Bardot.

She is the very symbol of free spiritedness, breaking free of the restrictions that had seen women rarely out of structured clothing, heels and a hat.

Bardot regularly wore ballet pumps, loose, tousled hair and short dresses to show off her famously perfect legs and made the bikini famous with an appearance on the beach in Cannes in 1953.

Save for her cat’s eye make-up and a glossy pout, her face was bare.
