Brigitte Bardot or just BB was the fist worldwide icon. She represents the femenine liberation after the long postwar period and the most natural and beautiful selfmade it girl. She made us dream with the modern France, with Saint Tropez and the French Riviera.
She was together with Jeanne Moreau, Jeanne Birkin, Catherin Deneuve, Anna Karina, Monica Vitti or Anouk Aimée one of the Nouvelle Vague muses. And the Nouvelle Vague owes a lot to these muses. They were helping the directors to succeed, they had opinion and as a free women they influenced all the 50's and 60's aesthetics.
Now that every commercial movie is more a marketing product than an artistic film, its good to remind us that in almost all BB movies was herself who was going to buy the clothes she was going to wear on the set. So being herself she became one of the biggest worldwide starts.
When we design our clothes we like to think with women like Brigitte Bardot, women who are not afraid to make their own rules.
