The Bardot Edit: Paris Couture Week 2014

Couture season in Paris is not for the faint of heart. This week’s fashion hustle was punctuated by star-studded events featuring supermodels (Elle Macpherson), girlfriends of supermodels (Michelle Rodriguez), reality stars (Kim Kardashian), scandalous bloggers (Miroslava Duma), daughters of muses (Tallulah Harlech), and the token burlesque star (Dita von Teese). It rained, the champagne poured, and then it got très très froid.

Here are some of Petite Brigitte’s unforgettable looks from the shows.

Kate Moss photo exhibition opens in Paris

 Paris has so many cool art galleries popping up in the north part of the Marais district, and this Kate Moss exhibition will certainly draw the fashionistas into the district.  Loving this photo above… very Bardotesque.

 

 (With all the fuss about drugs, rockstars and anorexia-inspiring catchphrases it’s sometimes difficult to remember that Kate Moss is famous for a reason – her jaw-dropping good looks.A new exhibition hopes to remind us with a collection of photographs which go on display today at La Gallerie de L’Instant in Paris.

Gunther Sachs dies, Bardot mourns

 

Sad news out this weekend on the most glamourous of Brigitte Bardot’s ex-husbands. Gunther Sachs, the dashing playboy who married Brigitte in 1966 after a fairytale courtship, took his life in Gstaad this weekend after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. His legend will live on. Check out Glenys Roberts‘ nostalgic reportage…

The newlyweds, who were impossibly glamorous, were all over each other that night in Hollywood. Brigitte Bardot was wearing the shortest of mini dresses, Gunther Sachs was in his trademark blazer with loafers and no socks.Finally, they went upstairs to consummate their marriage — to the great relief of everyone, including myself, at their wedding reception. We had all feared they might be about to perform on the dining room table such was the sexual chemistry that simmered between them.Perhaps memories of that extraordinary night in 1966 played through Sachs’s mind before he shot himself at the weekend at the age of 78.

Bardot vs Bundchen

While Brigitte Bardot may be given credit for launching tourism in Saint Tropez, she also helped light the fire under the Brazilien tourism industry in the 1960’s during her famous trip to the beachside resort of Buzios.

Now, brazillien top model Gisele Bundchen reincarnates BB for this month’s cover of Elle Brazil (in a photo originally shot for Muse magazine).

Who does 60’s sex kitten better, Bardot or Bundchen?
