the one with Brigitte Bardot

Brigitte Bardot "Viva Maria" set a page of Bardot

I had these photos of Brigitte Bardot for quite a while, intending to do a series of pinup pieces years ago, but it never came to be. So, before deleting my cache of Bardots, I thought I'd share them with you!
Some think of Bardot as the epitome of feminine beauty/sexuality (see And God Created Woman). I remember her in Babette Goes to War (Babette s'en va-t-en guerre), where she shone with her comedic charm. I think I'd like to rent out a few Bardot flicks; have myself a BB fest. Babette, Une Parissiene, Viva Maria! are the ones I think I'll revisit.

  Bardot illustration - Henrik Bodin
I came across this illustration by an artist named Henrik Bodin
I just love the simplicity of his work & the quote used (which I agree with! ha!)

Have you seen any Bardot movies? Any favourites?
(of course, I have to watch them with subtitles because I never did perfect my French)
