If there’s anyone who symbolizes French glamour best, it’s fashion icon Brigitte Bardot. She dominated the ’60s and ’70s fashion scene wearing those chic pantsuits, simple mini dresses, fashion-forward skirts, and her bikini-filled summers in the sun, always remaining elegant but undoubtedly sexy. Today, the model and actress, who has starred in over 40 films like And God Created Woman and Contempt, is celebrating her 82nd birthday. While she might best be known in 2016 for speaking out on French politics and animals’ rights, she still remains a fashion icon in our book. We’ve rounded up some of our favorites images of the timeless blonde bombshell from over the years. Joyeux anniversaire!
