A day in the life…Brigitte Bardot crawling out of a classic speed boat on a magical day in her hometown of Saint-Tropez. When she wasn’t jumping off the boat for a snorkel with her beau, she was playing with her dog named Clown.
Brigitte Bardot has always been a fashion icon who’s just as famous for her stylish good looks as she is her film roles. The star of movies like …And God Created Woman and Contempt found it incredibly hard to be in the middle of so much attention. She was the most beautiful woman of the ‘60s but had trouble dealing with people, which is why she retired from performing to work with animals. Her biographer Jeffrey Robinson told The Dailymail:
