She was just perfect in her youth!

I remember watching "And God created woman..." over and over again, even before I got subtitles, just because she was so STUNNING

Lara is a very beautiful, interesting looking woman, but Bardot was the ultimate sex kitten. I don't know how you would compare that?

Why does the media/people always have to keep comparing "new faces" to the icons? You won't have another Bardot. If you had another BB each decade she wouldn't be iconic...

I scanned some images from Brigitte's autobiography "Initials BB". The photos are nothing new, but I think her self-written notes compliment them. As this book has not been published in English, I translated the original captions myself, so any typos or grammatical errors are my fault.
There are a lot of pictures, but here's the first batch.

That second picture is just proof that no-one looks good on their confirmation day. I feel better about my own now

Thank you so much Fiammifero !! This is a brilliant idea, and it's such a pity that the book was never translated into English, I'm sure it would be successful.

I wholeheartedly agree And I particularly dislike the whole "oh she's blonde with gap teeth so she looks like Bardot".

Do you see any gap ? No you don't. You're welcome.

^I mostly want to know how she cut and styled her hair in her early brunette --> "...And god created woman" days. Youtube only gives you over-styled bouffants:/

^ yeah me too !! I absolutely love her hair in the mid 1950s.
Her haircut is amazing, I love the curls on her temples/cheeks. I don't know if there's a name for it (In French it's called "accroche coeurs") ?

I just love how her hair frames her face, it's beautifully done :

So far there's really no precise information about this...we've talked about it on a Bardot fansite and no one knows exactly. I just remember that she didn't wash her hair every day.

Are there any more photos of Brigitte without make-up, like the first picture in post #40? I'd like to see how she looked naturally, she always wore make-up.

^She is wearing makeup in that picture.

If you Google "Brigitte Bardot Cannes" you will get a lot of pictures of her on a beach without makeup.

^ Yeah you can see a tiny bit of eye-liner but that's a very light make-up.

There are a lot of pics where she's barely wearing make-up, but no make-up at all ? That's pretty rare, especially during her blonde era.

She looked great whit brown hair and pale skin I can't really relate to her later blonde and tan look:/ She was still dead sexy in her mid 30s though
