#TBT Brigitte Bardot
It’s a Thursday to throwback, and this #TBT goes out to one of the biggest sex symbols of all times: Brigitte Bardot! This sexy vixen was born in Paris in 1934, and rose to fame internationally with the 1957 controversial film, And God Created Woman. Today, Bardot, 80, is an animals right activist.
Bardot was not too excited about her fame, and found it to be too much at times. “I have been very happy, very rich, very beautiful, much adulated, very famous and very unhappy,” she said. Being famous comes at a very high price. I’m channeling Brigitte Bardot today because she took her fame and turned it into something good, something she believed in, like animal rights. “I gave my beauty and my youth to men. I am going to give my wisdom and experience to animals.”
Bardot was famous for her luscious lips, voluminous hair, and teeny tiny waist. Obviously, I look nothing like her, but I still had a blast channeling my inner (and brunette) Brigitte Bardot with my photographer extraordinaire, Beto Ramos in his Brooklyn studio.
Many thanks to boohoo.com for providing me with the clothes to make my transformation into Mademoiselle Bardot an easy thing!“A photograph can be an instant of life captured for eternity that will never cease looking back at you.” Brigitte Bardot
