Influence on Fashion
Brigitte Bardot is one of my favourite actress. For me she is personification of femininity.
She was "fashion-revolutionary" and " Many Thanks" her for that! =)
In fashion the Bardot neckline (a wide open neck that exposes both shoulders) is named after her. Bardot popularized this style which is especially used for knitted sweaters or jumpers although it is also used for other tops and dresses.
Bardot is recognized for popularizing bikini swimwear in early films such as Manina (Woman without a Veil, 1952), in her appearances at Cannes and in many photo shoots.
Bardot also brought into fashion the choucroute ("Sauerkraut") hairstyle (a sort of beehive hair style) and gingham clothes after wearing a checkered pink dress, designed by Jacques Esterel. She was subject for an Andy Warhol painting.
Bardot starred in 47 films, my favourite are "And God Created Woman" (1956), "Une Parisienne" (1957).
Brigitte Bardot still inspires fashion world.
