Brigitte Bardot

Among her style inspirations, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld lists Brigitte Bardot: "I’m a big fan of Brigitte Bardot, who represents my perfect woman, not so much for her clothes but for her attitude." Here is Julia at a party for Repetto, posing playfully with wall-size murals featuring Brigitte (along with Serge Gainsbourg on the opposite wall). If you have seen Bardot in her movies such as Et Dieu créa la femme or Le Mépris, perhaps you were inspired by her style as well.

I know that I wore a navy headband (wide) and cardigan for weeks after seeing Le Mépris for the first time. Of course the effect wasn't half as striking against my chestnut locks. Sigh... Is there anything like Bardot's hair for setting fire to men's souls? And that pout...

Here Bardot is pictured in the film Et Dieu créa la femme. I'd give anything to know who made the shoes she is shown in along with the simple chambray shirt dress that she actually wears as she bikes around St. Tropez. Only she could make flats look so very chic.

Bonjour, Juliet! I am thrilled to hear that. What was the exhibit like? Were you allowed to take photos? What did you think of Brigitte's wedding dress? Oh I am so jealous! But happy for you.
