Brigitte Bardot

Brigitte Bardot


“Her clothes are not fetishes and when she strips she is not unveiling a mystery…She walks, she dances, she moves about. Her eroticism is not magical but aggressive…The male is an object to her, just as she is to him.” – Simone de Beauvoir in Brigitte Bardot and the Lolita Syndrome (1959)

Savile Row’s James Hyman Gallery is celebrating Brigitte’s upcoming 75th b-day (September 28) with an exhibition of vintage prints taken by the original paparazzi who followed her around in the 1960s. My father was a big Bardot fan and I saw her movies thanks to him. I’m glad I was introduced to And God Created Women because a man needs a cinematic reference point for the future. I don’t think Bardot aged well, but that’s why we have these photographs to reminds us of her amazing youthful beauty.
