CielDeLit, have you read any of her books or maybe some biographies? Which one would you recommend?

I'd also read a bio of hers if I could get my hands on one that's in English.

Thank you so much AnnieHall, those pics are amazing ! Especially those from your 2nd post, they were taken during a pretty epic costume party at Brigitte's house in St Tropez in July 1968. She talks about this party in her autobiography.

Yes ! I've read her autobiography, which is divided in 2 books (their titles in French are "Initiales BB" and "Le carré de Pluton" but I'm pretty sure they were translated in English).
I think it's much better than reading a biography written by a random person, with mistakes or inaccuracies. You get Brigitte's version, her insight, and details you won't find elsewhere..

However, I'd like to read Vadim's (her 1st husband) autobiography, cause there's a quite lengthy passage about her from what I've heard.

Unfortunately Initiales BB hasn't been translated to English, but I was lucky enough to find it translated in my own language. It's a great read for anyone who adores Bri Bri. I also enjoyed Vadim's book, he talks about her in a loving manner, even though I think she and Deneuve sued Vadim after the release of the book :p.

I haven't read Le carré de Pluton, I'm pretty sure it's not available in English either . If somebody proves me wrong, I'm more than happy!

Btw, isn't that Gigi Rizzi with her in the last photo of anniehall's post?

Wow I'm surprised it hasn't been translated in English ! I hope it will be eventually !
I'll have to check if there's like an "approved by BB" biography, but I'm pretty sure there isn't.
Indeed Brigitte sued Vadim, but she regretted it afterwards, because she considered him as a brother, a friend. Maybe she was influenced by other people..

I'm not sure it's Gigi but he sure attended the party, if I remember well, Brigitte said that he came disguised as a Tuareg, so that's probably not him.

Oh that's too bad ! Is it just unavailable in your language or just in your country ? Because if the book has been translated into your language you could buy it on Ebay or stuff like that ?

Until then, there's still plenty of movies to watch, pictures to see, songs to listen and probably books to read about her The only biography I've come across on Google Books is by Barnett Singer, I don't know if it's any good or reliable though.
