I say, let’s not ALWAYS wait for people to leave this earthly realm before we celebrate them. So, no RIP, the goddess is still here, although at 80, looking more like grandma. (Jane Fonda is another icon from the era –but at 76 she’s worked harder to maintain than our girl, Brigitte.) I suppose we DO keep creating icons but from this vantage point, it seems the only ones that are truly lasting are the ones that are half a century old. Brigitte Bardot just turned 80 – ANY and EVERY one in the fashion or entertainment biz should sing her praises. There’s not one fashion editor, stylist, photographer, makeup artist or the like who doesn’t owe some debt to Bardot. Do these pictures look familiar? They are iconic because they have been imitated SO much that they seem all looked out. If you are a certain age, you know what I mean –and if you’re younger – trust me, she invented the boho goddess/ sex kitten. Take a look and appreciate. And depending on who is looking, you might get some tips, even today.
