She is the French sex kitten who became a screen legend and a style icon; her iconic seaside style has been followed by many generations. Brigitte Bardot popularized the bikini, the "Bardot neckline" (the wide open neck that exposes both shoulders), and the chochroute hairstyle (a sort of beehive hairstyle).
My look was inspired by Brigitte Bardot and her love for the South of France. I am wearing a sailor-like striped shirt (from Juicy Couture), a velvet navy head band (vintage), and simple pearl earrings (Swarovski crystals).
The Brigitte Bardot inspired hairstyle is best for long or medium-lenght hair. Make sure to try this look on sleek hair. I suggest using a teasing comb, bobby pins and a hair spray (I used "Big Sexy Hair Spray"). What I love about the Brigitte Bardot hairstyle is that it is easy and fast to re-create. Here is a great tutorial on how to re-create Brigitte's hairstyle. At the end, add a hair-band for that effortless chic look.
I hope you enjoyed my beauty tips, until next time...signing-off from New York City, xoxo.
