Iconic Women Of Style: Brigitte Bardot

Who: Brigitte Bardot,  French model, actress, singer and animal rights activist.

Brigitte began her career in 1952, starring in over 16 movies and taking Europe and the United States by storm. Her effortless and relaxed style of the 1960's has set the standard for sexy feminine looks that are still inspiring us today. Making the bikini popular, vacationing in the South of France, and the Bardot neckline are just a few of the things we can thank Brigitte for. 

HOL Insider Style Tips: 
Achieving the Bardot style is simple, and a perfect look for summer!

Add a large straw hat, black framed shades and a scarf to any summer ensemble to instantly add a touch of glam to your look.

Ballet flats, cropped skinny jeans and polka dots are also all perfect go- to pieces for an effortless 60's style.

Beach wavy hair, thick black liner and a neutral lip add the perfect amount of drama for day or night.

Adding a simple accessory or stacked bakelite bangles will instantly pull your look together and add that perfect 1960's touch.
