Brigitte Bardot at the Beach
Brigitte Bardot was one of the biggest celebrities on the ‘50s and ‘60s. More than a celebrity, Bardot was an icon, leaving a lasting impression on generations to come. Born in 1934, Bardot broke into acting at a young age, eventually starring in the likes of And God Created Woman, Contempt, and A Very Private Affair.
In this photo, snapped in the early ’60s, Bardot was vacationing in the French Riviera. Now in her 80s, she is still seen as one of the most iconic faces of cinema.
