Young Brigitte Bardot stunning under the summer sun
You’d be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t have a crush on Brigitte Bardot. A cinema idol for multiple generations of people, she knew exactly how her status as a sexy ingenue affected the audience and she sculpted her persona to squeeze the most out of every performance.
As one of the most famous women on the planet throughout the 1950s and ‘60s the one thing that she didn’t have was anonymity, something that she so deeply wanted. She explained to The Guardian:
I don’t know what it means to sit quietly in a bistro, on a terrace, or in the theatre without being approached by someone.
